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

1975-76: Essentially performed as on "Overnite Sensation", allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation, and with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo. The end of this song is typically the "my-monitor-is-not-working" part of the show, and thus we frequently get an extended outro on this song while all necessary amends are made. During the 10/31 late performance, Norma Bell takes a wonderful alto sax solo during this prolonged "Dirty Love" vamp. Interestingly enough, this song preceded "Stinkfoot" at several shows early in the tour, before taking its standard position immediately following "Stinkfoot".

1976-77: Essentially performed as on "Conceptual Continuity" from Beat the Boots Volume II, with the standard deviation coming in Frank's short solo. Bianca's voice graced this tune for her short stint, with Frank returning to the vocal job in her absence.

1977-78: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume VI, though quite a bit slower, and allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation. Frank decided to whip out the "Stinkfoot-> Poodle Rap" for the 10/30 concert and video recording (the first of three known performances on this tour, the other two being 11/11, and the "Stinkfoot" a la carte 12/31 rendition), and "Dirty Love" comes along for the ride for the first two.

1979: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume 6, with a short Cucurullo guitar spurt, and an extended outro as Frank usually concluded the encores or announced a segue into the next song. And yes, Vinnie was his usual brilliant self during this tune, elevating it far past throwaway status.
