Shoutbox

tootull: And tonight flies a better moon. - No buzz words, fuzzy fudge words - Cool in the corner, tom cat sitting - Orange order in a field of green. - Reflecting echoes of quiet laughter - Oh well, you're making it all (Ted) sound just the same. Jun 26, 2015 16:12:20 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: I hear you calling in your...Scream Dream... er...Sweet Dream! Get out and get what you can! ;) Jun 26, 2015 21:18:33 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: Speaking of which, am I the only one who hugely prefers the version of Sweet Dream on Bursting Out to the studio version? I hardly ever prefer live versions anymore, now that I've gotten used to the albums, but I still prefer that live version. Jun 26, 2015 21:37:02 GMT *
FrontDoorAngel: Though I must say their 12 minute plus encapsulation of TAAB on Bursting Out was amazing too, though I prefer the studio album. I just wish the 72 LP had been slowed down and even pitched down a notch. Jun 26, 2015 21:39:18 GMT *
tootull: I don't really like Sweet Dream & add Witches Promise to that, but they are still better than listening to Nugent... :D Jun 26, 2015 21:48:43 GMT *
JTull 007: That makes sense to me. Sometimes I listen to the studio version and it really grabs me. When I hear the live version it feels like I'm watching the show in my mind. 8-| DVDs are also lots of fun... :D Jun 27, 2015 23:42:38 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: Studio Sweet Dream is not one of my fave Tull songs, but I love Witch's Promise, especially the "Keep looking keep looking" bit, and the beautiful flute melody with strings after that. Jun 28, 2015 2:58:13 GMT
maddogfagin: Must admit I do like Sweet Dream and Witch's Promise in their original form - reminds me constantly of buying them from the local record shop and then rushing home to play them as if they were illicit goods that nobody else should know I had :D 8-) Jun 28, 2015 8:59:35 GMT *
JTull 007: Young Graham... "Illicit Tull Collector" (rofl) Well done ;) Jun 28, 2015 12:58:57 GMT
maddogfagin: Fresh from the ITC University of south London ;) Jun 28, 2015 15:57:05 GMT
FrontDoorAngel: That's it, instead of thinking of something clever to say, Imma go listen to some Tull! 8D Jun 29, 2015 5:49:34 GMT
maddogfagin: Suggestion - APP on repeat 8-) Jun 29, 2015 8:13:04 GMT
steelmonkey: Home honey I'm high...back from vacation and clearing bills and work pile-up so i can return to forum priority. I'll scan threads but any BIG news? Tour dates west of Chicago? Release dates for new opera music ? Jun 30, 2015 1:00:29 GMT
maddogfagin: No but as Joe Walsh once sang "I keep on going, guess I'll never know why. Life's been good to me so far" Jun 30, 2015 8:32:47 GMT *
JTull 007: Welcome Back Bernie!!!! Not to be confused with Welcome Back Kotter... :D It's summer and I feel like a TULL 'Sweathog' ;) Jun 30, 2015 11:11:34 GMT *
tootull: Suitable to Bernie :D Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out. Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about. Jun 30, 2015 13:57:22 GMT *
JTull 007: Well the names have all changed since you hung around, But those dreams have remained and they're turned around. ::) Jun 30, 2015 22:19:22 GMT *
tootull: Who'd have thought he’d stand on one leg for ya (Who'd have thought he'd play lead flute for ya) Back to the Tull family here where we need ya (Here where we need ya) Yeah we tease him a lot cause we've got him on the spot, Welcome back, welcome back... ;) Jul 1, 2015 13:18:21 GMT
JTull 007: Well done Tootull Sweathog :D Jul 1, 2015 14:27:48 GMT
JTull 007: Salute to Patti :D Welcome back, your dreams were your ticket out. Welcome back, to that same old place that you laughed about. (rofl) Jul 3, 2015 14:51:20 GMT
