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

1975 Apr-May: David Lynch: "Note that the song listed on the early show for 4/11, "George's Boogie", is not simply a George Duke improvisation, but an actual written song (in FZ's words, "just a ditty"), with a quirky full-band theme reminiscent of FZ's Roxy-era writing bookending a brief Duke solo."

Oscar Bianco on Touring Can Make You Crazy:

George's Boogie is a written song and must not be confused with the boogie improvisation by George Duke (known as The Booger Man) usually performed in the '73-'74 tours and sometimes present also in this tour. As far as I know the Claremont April 11 early show is the only one recorded performance of George's Boogie. It remains officially unreleased and one of the less known Zappa's songs.
