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

1980 Oct-Dec: Not really a "sprechstimme" production, this "Dangerous Kitchen" version. Frank's vocals are essentially the same as always, but the musical accompianment is not your typical "sprechstimme" accompianment. Barrow is locked into a rather simple, tick-tock type groove, while Mars randomly inserts keyboard chords and riffs (though not in the same way they would during the "normal" "Dangerous Kitchen" workout). Patrick Buzby points out that "this has Tommy doing the Landini cadence riff which later became part of "Frogs With Dirty Little Lips." Even Vinnie—who is very active and typically brilliant in this performance—does not really sound as if he's playing along with Frank's vocals, but just jamming to some unheard tribal beat. Personally, I think this version is musically more interesting than the "sprechstimme" version, but then again, I'm not a really big fan of this facet of Frank's music.

1981: Essentially performed as on "Man from Utopia", with the standard deviation coming with the nature of a "sprechstimme" production.

1984: Essentially played as on YCDTOSA Volume I.

1988: Essentially performed as on YCDTOSA Volume I, allowing for obvious differences in instrumentation, and with the standard deviation inherent in a "sprechstimme" production.
