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

1975 Sep-Dec: This tune premieres late in the tour, popping up towards the end of several concerts. Essentially, it erupts as the monster we know and love, though it is somewhat lacking in the wicked confidence that the later versions would have. We get the standard deviation in Frank's solos, which are somewhat hesitant affairs, but definitely hint at the power that would be unleashed early the following year.

1976 Jan-Mar: This is the heavy metal monster we know and love, with Frank taking his typically mean-spirited solo. In what is usually a momentary bummer, Andre takes a keyboard solo to start off the solo section (a quite lengthy one) but both his sound and overly dramatic technique prove to be frequently enjoyable. Not only that, but Frank's solo is even more wicked and more insane when compared to the noodlings of Andre. This tune is one of the few reasons why this tour is worth having a tape or two from.

1979: Not played in its entirety. Frank dipped into this riff for several bars, with rhythm section in tow, during his "City of Tiny Lites" solo on 3/19/79. I guess FZ figured that that was the only was he could top Walley's scorching slide solo.

1984: A rare treat of the '84 tour. Only played a couple of times, this tune still managed to maintain much of its sense of foreboding doom, though it was not as evil as the studio version, nor as majestic as the '88 one. It was essentially played as on that latter tour, accounting for the obvious differences in instrumentation, and the standard deviation in Frank's sinister solo

1988: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume IV, with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo.
