JT played Giessen (16/7/88, VfB Stadion (Waldstadion)) on this tour (the above poster was from a few days earlier) which was recorded by German radio and there is also an audience recording of the complete set. Great concert - went over with a coach load of Tull fans and also met up with the legendary Michael Veith and also a contingent of AND people in a rather unkempt and "wiffy" campervan Oh, and it chucked it down with rain

maddogfagin: Sure are - the Cornish sub species (originally shipwrecked off Land's End whilst on transit to Aberdeen and escaped to shore) are devilish little blighters at the best of times.

futureshock: The secret language of birds: millions of yrs old. Just 18+ yrs ago, someone tackled that idea and radiated music back on the topic. That's why it's one of the best reviewed solo albums out there! Chirp that in your blender and take it to the riverside.
