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

During the lengthy "Pound for a Brown" performance on 4/19, Captain Beefheart begins singing/screaming the lyrics to this "Clear Spot" tune. At least, I am assuming it is the "Clear Spot" tune. I am a big fan of that album, and while I definitely recognize the words "Crazy Little Thing" in Beefheart's yelling, I do not recognize the melody as being the same as the one on the album version of this song. But knowing the Captain, that could be intentional, or just a part of his delivery. Whatever the case, this spontaneous recital of lyrics over a rather hectic jam is a worthy addition to this somewhat insane "Pound for a Brown" performance.
