Foggy G, "The Songs That Were Played," We're Only In It For The Touring

1974: As part of his opening moment-in-the-spotlight before the official start of "Dupree's Paradise", Duke would spin a tale based on the band's experiences on the road. Frequently, these tales would involve Marty and his peculiar fascination with dogs, and from these tales, this song—with everchanging lyrics—would arise out of the jam. In several shows, Duke would spin a different tale, and the band would jam on this same riff, with the lyrics relating some other non-"booger man" story. As this is an improvised event, however, we will include those performances as other performances of this song. In the instance of the actual YCDTOSA Volume IV release, "The Booger Man" is an isolated event, and does not serve as a prelude to "Dupree's Paradise".
