Jam Chart for Frankie Says (3 entries)

Date City Timing Notes
1998-11-04 Denver, CO 10:20 A somewhat dark and low intensity groove with a swirling sense and cool effects from Page develops as the typical "Frankie Says" concludes and -> to "David Bowie."
2003-12-28 Miami, FL 11:39 A beautiful but darkish jam develops on the back end of "Frankie Says" proper. The energy builds nicely, then recedes back to quiet space before > to a solid "Llama."
2021-10-16 San Francisco, CA 17:02 Kicking off the back half of a monstrous set 2 and busting out after a 196 show gap, what seems like a quick breather instead grows sea legs and takes a walk. Roughly 3:30 in, Mike and Page drive the jam to open flowery pastures, as Fish propels with cowbells and Trey searches for jam grooves. The groove washes out to sea and coasts on gentle waves upon Fish's ride, slowly building momentum to a characteristic melodic theme of fall '21. At the 8:30 mark the jam takes heavier rhythmic cues and a dance party throw down starts building. "Manteca" tease at 9:35. Thick effect-laden Trey and the cymbal-snare dance of Fish propel the back half of this jam to a start-stop "woo" passage. "Bathtub Gin" teases at 13:00 and 15:15.
Jam chart versions are selected because of improvisational and other characteristics that distinguish these from typical versions of the song.
