1968: I have tried to attain a '68 version of this song for some time, but every tape I get which purportedly contains this tune either does not contain it, or contains an instrumental jam in its place. Somebody help me here?
1974 (May): Essentially performed as on "Roxy and Elsewhere", with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo. This is one of the continual treats of this tour, and never fails to produce some excellent Frank solos.
1974 (Jul-Dec): Essentially played as on "Roxy and Elsewhere", with the main variation coming in Frank's solo. Like in subsequent years, the lyrics would also frequently be changed to update the audience on band happenings.Notable Performance- 11/17/74 [Monster jam, with "Any Downers" riff; song never finished]
1984: Essentially played as on "Does Humor Belong in Music?", with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo. Unfortunately, as the tour proceeded, Frank had the annoying habit of stopping the song DEAD IN IT'S TRACKS to reestablish or start up a new soloing vamp. It was like a new song reinserted right in the middle of "More Trouble" (the DHBIM version is a perfect example of this). The solos were almost always great- no complaint here- it just really ruined the flow of the song.
1988: Essentially performed as on TBBYNHIYL, with the standard deviation coming in Frank's solo, and in the frequent Secret Word sabotage to which this tune would fall victim. For the European portion of the tune, Frank has written a new piece of music, about ten seconds in length, that serves as a segue from the 2nd chorus to the guitar solo. This segue consists of a series of ascending and then descending riffs- prominently played by the horn section- which takes us from the vocal section into a new vamp (in 13) for the guitar solo.
