This wasn't quite as awkward as I'd expected from what I'd heard. Still funny though
20 years on I would agree but at the time the BBC was still clinging on to its Reithian values and auntie knew best as far as things like this were concerned. Hence broadcasters like Gloria who were loved by the heirachy at the BBC for being prim and proper etc were seen as being a beacon for correctness.
I reckon IA realised this and, to be fair, Gloria fell right into his trap.
It's still a puzzle as to how John Peel was able to retain his programme right up to his passing.
In most cases, my favorite Jethro Tull songs will be determined by how I feel about them as live performance songs, not by the recorded identity.
FrontDoorAngel: OR: has he ever retracted those youthful remarks and actions of his, to anyone's knowledge? I know one thing: I said and did many embarrassing and stupid things in my day. I still do, I must confess.

FrontDoorAngel: All that being typed: he does seem to have a fixation on killing animals. The native Americans hunted and killed because they had to in order to survive, for the most part; Ted's a multi-millionaire with no need to hunt for meat. Must own lots of freezers.

JTull 007: I'm sure we all have said things in the past we regret. The more recent Ted Nugent is not my cup of tea but he has his own anger to live with. Especially when he wakes up every day in a Scream Dream...

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.

FrontDoorAngel: I hear you calling in your...Scream Dream... er...Sweet Dream! Get out and get what you can!

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.

tootull: I don't really like Sweet Dream & add Witches Promise to that, but they are still better than listening to Nugent...
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. DVDs are also lots of fun...

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.

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

JTull 007: Young Graham... "Illicit Tull Collector" Well done

FrontDoorAngel: That's it, instead of thinking of something clever to say, Imma go listen to some Tull!

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 ?

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"

JTull 007: Welcome Back Bernie!!!! Not to be confused with Welcome Back Kotter... It's summer and I feel like a TULL 'Sweathog'
Jun 30, 2015 11:11:34 GMT
tootull: Suitable to Bernie 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.
