Comments

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

1972 (Sep): "There is no scientific explanation for this, it is simply a shuffle". Thanks, Frank. Essentially performed as on "The Grand Wazoo", with the standard deviation coming in the solos. The tune begins with the opening riff and solo as found on the album, only this time we get a horn solo and no FZ. After the solo, the tune proceeds as normal, with Duran's slide solo still intact. In the lengthy solo section, we get a couple of horn solos, and a Frank solo, before arriving at the second half of the tune. This half is also performed as on the album, with a short Underwood keyboard solo in the appropriate spot THINK IT OVER- The early name for "The Grand Wazoo", referring to the lyrics that Frank originally conceived for this tune.

THINK IT OVER

original lyrics from Them Or Us (The Book), p. 203-204

If something gets in your way,
Just THINK IT over...
If something gets in your way,
JUST THINK IT OVER!

If something gets in your way,
Just think it OVER...
If something gets in your way,
JUST THINK IT OVER!

And
It will fall down
It will fall down
It will fall
Just wait 'n see!

Soon
It'll fall down
It'll fall down
It'll fall
TAKE IT FROM ME!

Everything that gets in your way ain't real
Everything that gets in your way ain't real
Everything that gets in your way ain't real
It ain't real!
It ain't real!
It ain't real, so
"What's the deal?"

Over
Over
Over
It'll fall over
