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

1975-76: Amazingly enough, this song premieres on this tune in almost exactly the same form it would reappear several years later. There are several slight differences throughout the tune, but for the most part, the lyrics and structure sound exactly as they would on "Joe's Garage". The opening riff is different, consisting of a busier, more chorded guitar intro. After the "Roll it over and grease it down" lines, there is a new section of music, approximately 10 seconds in length, consisting of the lines "Grease it down" and a new short riff (this music sounds quite similar to the ending riff that appears in the 1980 version of "Dead Girls of London"). Finally, after the "Here comes that screaming sound" line, Brock takes a screeching sax solo over the following riff, which would later be replaced by vocal parts. The overall feel of the tune is remarkedly similar to that of the later versions, and whether you like this version or not really depends on how well you like any version of this song.

1978: Essentially performed as on "Saarbrucken" from Beat the Boots Volume I, with the hyperactive, drum flurry ending.

1979: Performed as on "Anyway the Wind Blows" from Beat the Boots Volume I.

1980 Mar-Jul: Essentially performed as on "Joe's Garage", allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation, and only up to the point where the extended guitar solo section begins.

1980 Oct-Dec: Essentially performed as on "Joe's Garage", accounting for obvious differences in instrumentation, and only up to the point where the extended guitar solo section begins.

1984: Essentially played as on YCDTOSA Volume III.
