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.
JTull 007: True. That one is exceptional quality of sound and style much like the "Aqua-Diddley" which evolved from the "DIVINITIES" Tour in '95. This Prague performance seems even more than before.

JTull 007: Well said. He never gets his wires crossed and can play anything that pops in Ian's brain.

JTull 007: The video for " Lap of Luxury " is quite good considering the state of MTV in those days. When I first saw it, I screamed ... "Buy me a Datsun or Toy-o-ta-ta." TULL was born again!
