I never understood this thread...who uses wathces anymore? We all have phones that tell time. And if I wanted to buy a watch, why would i do it on Ebay? And what does it all have to do with Tull anyway ? Time for Everything? Play in Time? Watching Me , Watching You ?
Stitch in Time or Stormwatch maybe

Couple of interesting items sold on ebay this week.
A genuine MGM "Toe" stock copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with small UK centre hole went for £245.45p.
A counterfeit MGM copy of Sunshine Day/Aeroplane with the band's name correctly spelt on the label and with a large US style centre hole sold for $36.
When you buy vinyl it helps to know what to expect just like autographs. Lots of things are duplicated. Prices are a clue but it pays to get expert advice. I tend to look for newer items in general.
Tull fans are fortunate that counterfeit 7" singles are few and far between.
The Toe/Tull large centre hole counterfeit was a deliberate attempt to deceive and I know at least two people who bought a copy thinking they had the real deal and paid a lot of money for the privilege. Some dealers will also try and pass it on as the real thing with "a second pressing" as part of the description - utterly incorrect and fraudulant.
Rule of thumb - if it's got a large centre hole and the band's name correctly spelt it's a counterfeit and worth £25 - £30 as a curio.
The other counterfeit I know of is a Penny Peeps single on the UK Liberty label. A genuine copy is worth quite a bit, definately in the £100 bracket, but a copy again with a large centre hole is a counterfeit and worth £6 - £10.

Silly me...a friend gave me a mint condition 'My God' bootleg.....and I figured it wasn't worth much...after all they made zillions....so I was gonna offer it on our forum to whomever wanted it, but stopped at a record store on the way home and the guy gave me a CD in trade for it...piece of crap 'Imagine Dragons' CD that my kid wanted. When I got home I looked on e-bay and saw the exact version ( cover and label) that I traded for a $7.95 used CD, was going for between $40 and $80 !
Lovely O16 NY signed by 'Jethro Tull'. Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull favoured these guitars in the '70s so there is a strong reason for the signing. This is such a comfortable playing little guitar and in superb condition for the age.
steelmonkey: 12 days till Tull and it looks like 50/50 chance of A Passion Play excerpt.

steelmonkey: The countdown from today (10) to Tull liftoff on July 9, will bring memories of being herded into the school cafeteria to watch space rocket launches on TV in the 60s. Amazing that they did that with arrays of computers that had less power than our phones

fluteinthegallery: If I had to put my love for Tull in to one word, it would be "everything". This band means everything to me.
Jul 15, 2019 3:59:50 GMT
steelmonkey: I would agree. I love music, I love rock and roll but my love for Tull is it's own category and bigger than the other two,
