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

1968: Essentially performed as on "Ahead of Their Time", with the standard deviation coming in the somewhat improvised lyrics.

1974: During the absolutely incredible 8/11 show (documented on an absolutely horrible tape), Frank whips out this '60's classic, and turns in one of the most inspired performances of a consistently inspired tour. The song is essentially performed as on "Freak Out!", with an extra verse of Nixon-esque "Help I'm Not A Crook" thrown in for good measure. Frank even throws in an extensive guitar solo a la the Sixties, complete with some "Transylvania Boogie-ish" style riffs. This leads to a short Duke solo, a short Thompson solo, and then a segue into special guest Tom Waits "Ol' 55". Unfortunately, the tape is edited here, and when we return, Waits has already left the stage, and the band is once again jamming on the "Help I'm A Rock" riff. This is very, very sweet. Anyone who can tolerate less than average sound must make it a top priority to acquire this tape.
