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

1978: During the "Little House I Used To Live In" guitar solo on 2/18, Frank starts playing the melody to a familiar tune. Bozzio, thinking it's "Black Magic Woman", starts singing "Black Magic Woman". Frank then chimes in, "No, I was playing 'Land of A Thousand Dances'". So Frank starts singing his song, but then changes his mind and says that it would be sick if they actually performed "Black Magic Woman". So they try to, but the band doesn't really know the tune, and the only words that Bozzio actually knows are "Black Magic Woman". So the song quickly falls apart, but then Bozzio remembers that some of the words are "Put a spell on me baby", which he attempts to fit into every line. Frank sees that this is going nowhere, rips off some guitar runs, conducts the band off in another direction, and then closes the set. Interesting, to say the least.
