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

1968: LET'S GO DOWNTOWN- This R&B flavored number briefly pops up during the "Hawaiian Eye" improv from the 4/20 Fillmore East show. After the Hawaiian jam dissolves into blankets of noise, the rhythm section eases into this tune, with someone other than Frank providing the "Let's Go Downtown" lyrics. Frank then adds his two cents, overlaying the whole affair with the mutated melody from "Hawaiian Eye". This live xenochrony continues for about a minute, before Frank leads the band into an early version of "Holiday in Berlin".
SHOTGUN- This title is found on set lists for the 4/20 show, and I must say I have no idea to what it exactly refers. The lengthy musical passage that the title refers to consists of "Hawaiian Eye" and "Let's Go Downtown", both of which I have discussed on this page. I am assuming that one of these musical passages is actually "Shotgun", but since I do not know what the original "Shotgun" is, I really cannot say. [Charles Ulrich with this correction: "Shotgun" was a hit for Junior Walker (tenor sax, vocals) on Motown in 1965. Among the more decipherable lyrics Ray sings are "Do the jerk, baby", "Put on your red dress", and the title itself. I'm afraid this is what you have erroneously labeled "Let's Go Downtown".]
