After hearing Jeremiah's Blues last night (for the first time) and googling, it seems there were four non album tracks! (they were all mentioned here on a FITF thread)
so were these available on an EP? maybe a digital only album like he did for the new album?
i couldn't find any decisive information from googling. Obviously I would buy them in a second if i could. (i think the EP for FITF has some of the best songs !) I get a bad feeling though that I might have trouble purchasing these

Some Guns and Sarah, I'm Surrounded were on a 7 inch that released at the same time as CHFE iirc. Jeremiah's Blues was played live a lot and then got released on 'The Revival Tour 2012 Collections', which is on iTunes. I don't think a studio version of Meserole has been released... Back in 2012, Craig did a live version on video with Bowery Presents, but it seems to have been taken down from youtube.
There were two other songs from around that time, Once You Roll Over, which was the b-side to the Jackson single. It's excellent. He also did a song for a collaborative EP, called Pacific Standard Time with Esquire magazine; I think the idea was all of the artists involved wrote a song around that theme, and Craig wrote a fantastic song called Respective Coasts. Both of these have disappeared from iTunes. If you have trouble tracking these down, shoot me a message and I'll see if I can help you out... I prefer them to a lot of CHFE.

Those outtakes/non-LP tracks are some of my favorite Finn solo tunes. The 2 7" songs are wonderful, Jeremiah's Blues is so so crushing, and Respective Coasts is an absolutely perfect short story distilled into a simple seeming song.
