Added "Place Pigalle" per comments from Larry Crane in December 2010.
Also added a number of other tracks that were incorrectly listed in the October 1998 Abbey Road Session.

Added information about Easy Way Out's additional tracks (that appear to have been inadvertently omitted in the original writeup).
