Long Hot Summer Days features only three original songs: the haunting minor key title track, the bouncing “Deep Blue Sea” and the acoustic country blues of “Anywhere The Wind Blows”. The nine cover versions are all relatively well-known, from The Band’s “The Shape I’m In” and Bobby Marchin’s “There Is Something On Your Mind” to Percy Sledge’s “Out Of Left Field” and Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows”. But while some of these songs are perhaps overly familiar, Byrnes and his compadres invariably put an interesting twist on their versions. So Wilson Pickett’s “Ninety Nine And A Half (Won’t Do)” sees less focus on the famous bass line of the original and the introduction of some Stax-like horns, while Bobby Bland’s “Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City” sees the chorus re-worked with gospel voices and an almost country rhythm guitar part. “Everybody Knows” is slowed down slightly to draw out its bluesy edge. Jesse Winchester’s “Step By Step” has added slide guitar, horns and glorious backing vocals (and a great sax solo from Conway).
