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

1968: This charming little piece appears several times in the 60's as part two of the ridiculous little medley that appears on "Tis the Season to Be Jelly". The medley consists of "You Didn't Try To Call Me"-> "Petrushka"-> Bristol Stomp"-> "Baby Love"-> Big Leg Emma", and the '68 version is essentially performed as on that Beat the Boots track.
