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

1968: Essentially performed as on "The Ark", complete with guitar solo. This tune popped up frequently throughout the year, usually performed as mentioned above, but one time (Miami, 3/??) possibly as an instrumental. There are no vocals on the tape during this show opening performance, but that could be due to poor tape quality or early-show mic problems. Nevertheless, this performance follows that same format as the vocal-versions, with a FZ guitar solo climaxing the affair.

1976-77: Another of those "what is this?" versions. This is the SLOW version of this tune. It starts off heavy on the guitar, with Frank playing some distorted chords in a very sluggish yet forceful manner. It is not until the lyrics begin that we realize what song we are in, and then we have second doubts because the lyrics are being sung so slow. When the solo comes, we run and check our tape deck and make sure it is not broken, swearing that this solo should be much faster. But no, the vocals continue, and the voices sound all right, but damn, are they slow. An interesting version, which is actually quite enjoyable once you get over the speed at which it is played. The '77 band slows it down and it works, the '84 band speeds it up and it works- this just must be one solid song.

LEATHER GOODS- One of the much longer improvised codas to this tour's "Jones Crusher" eventually appeared as this bonus track on the 1996 release "Lather". Thus, as it is performed on 2/17, it is exactly the same as it appears on this album.

1984: Essentially played as on YCDTOSA Volume IV, with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo. Not a bad version of this tune, eh, even though it is the '84 band.

1988: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume IV, allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation, and with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo.
