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

1975 Sep-Dec: Another rare treat that only appears in the early shows of this tour. Essentially performed as on "Joe's Garage", allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation. While Brock does nowhere near as good a job as Ike would do years later, he does manage to control himself somewhat, not oversinging this song as he does so many others. Brock's restrained vocals, matched with Frank's typical guitar fills, make this a nice addition to the early shows of this tour.

1980 Mar-Jul: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume III, allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation.

1980 Oct-Dec: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume III, acounting for obvious differences in instrumentation.

1984: I love this song. Yes, it's that mock reggae again, but at a casual pace not all that familiar to Zappa songs. Essentially played as on YCDTOSA Volume III, with the standard deviations in Frank's guitar fills.

1988: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume III, allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation, and with the standard deviation coming in Frank's tasty guitar fills. While I am on the verge of personally despising all things reggae in the Zappa canon, I find this song to be the shining exception to that rule, and find Ike to be at his best in this sordid tale of unrequited love.
