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

1968: During the 4/10 performance, this tune pops up in a transcendent passage of music consisting of "King Kong-> Wedding Dress Song-> Little House I Used to Live In-> Status Back Baby". At the tail end of "King Kong", the music slowly dissolves into a reflective piano solo, from which the band delicately builds the basis of the "Wedding Dress Song". They are hesitant at first, but Frank steps up and with a solid stroke of the guitar, leads the band into a jazzed out version of this tune. After a short take on the main theme, we get a flute solo, followed by a horn solo which liberally teases the tune's melody. During this latter solo, Frank begins playing the melody line to "Little House", which eventually brings about a seamless transition into a shortened version of that tune. Simply beautiful.
