Actually, looking into it further, it seems they're using the
Noel Pointer '77 version of "Living For The City" and
the Gene Harris '72 recording of "Listen Here"...
The credits I was looking at were the original authors, not performers
The other ones that are different are:
"Down Here On The Ground" from Grant Green's '70 album "Alive"
"Friends & Strangers" from Ronnie Laws '77 album with that title
"Mixed Feelings" from Jacky Terrasson's '95 album "Reach"
Sorry, I don't have much of a jazz background or else I would've
realized the difference.
