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

1978: An instrumental tune, built around a percussion riff in twenty-one, that Frank employed as a solo vehicle several times in the tour. It was used as an Opening Guitar Solo vehicle on 9/17, again on 10/4, and as part of the "Little House I Used To Live In" festivities on 10/29.

Twenty-One is a riff in (as the title implies) 21/8. It was played at 9-17-78 (L) and [10-04-78] as a guitar vehicle, and at 10-29-78 with solos by other band members. It also showed up the second verse of the studio version of Keep It Greasey, and eventually resurfaced in '88 as the solo vamp for Marqueson's Chicken. (One of those solos became the title cut of Trance Fusion.)

Zappa Penguin, August 18, 2011
