Wider audience, yep. Mighty challenge, yep. Altered for live performance, sure, if done deliberately by a band loaded up with people capable of playing it with total immersion, at the talent level required. Can't say more, because I don't know where that band is.
If APP is remixed, what should the remix product include? I'd like to hear bandmember comments on the recording and touring of it.
I think that the sleeve should be expanded into a booklet rather like the other remastered albums and also that the whole piece should be tracked in a similar fashion to the super duper gold edition which goes for mega bucks on ebay and other auction sites on the web.
And . . . it would be great to see some photographs of the band in the studio around 1973, ones that we haven't seen before. Surely they must exist somewhere ?
And the slightly preposterous, over-the-top idea that you can cram 8,040 years of history into 52 minutes, why mess about? Get on with it – do something challenging.
I have not yet purchased any of the Steven Wilson remixes of Tull material--except for a single mp3 file from amazon--not because I'm not interested, but I don't really feel I need it.
That being said, from hearing bits of his work before, I will be inclined to get my hands on the upcoming Passion Play release. That is the Tull album I regularly come back to more than the others I notice.
JTull 007: Next time I order, I'll have Patti, Graham, Bernie, John, and all the Forum members squeezed into the Ian Anderson Tull Cavern for a real "Launch Party". Special Guests Florian, Scott, David, John, Ryan, and Ian.

steelmonkey: Car to work is faster than bike ( barely !) so i only had time for: Enter, PFA, Better Things, Turnpike and Cold dead reckoning to start my day right. If I don't get my CD today, my daughter, girlfriend and pets are in for an ugly weekend.......

JTull 007: It's 4 pm and no Homo yet. Called local record stores and they have none delivered either for Record Store Day. Very disturbing. Best Buy has a few copies of the cd in Asheville. They obviously have a more efficient way to get them....

JTull 007: I am feeling slightly better after finding out a Tull Chick in South Carolina got hers today. I am only 45 minutes from there and the shipping department at least is working. Monday will have to be the day!

futureshock: OK, there's a pattern building of many people saying that while they like it, they like it more after repeat listenings, so we need a new thread about the Erraticoid, so how about someone who's listened to that critter at least 10 times, starts the thread?

nonrabbit: Great idea Mr Shock and one which I will be carrying out as soon as I've clocked into the "Why I'm a Tullfan" thread for a bit of fellowship and understanding on this auspicious occasion of a new work.

steelmonkey: I'm at 4 complete listens (Kindle headphones) and countless 1 to 4 song bites. I like it more and more but now wish i could hear it on 5.1 mix or similar fancy upgrades....I get the feeling they worked hard and planted lots in the high end model.

JTull 007: Holy Scotch on the Rocks! North Sea Gas is coming to my town on June 1st. This is like a dream come true!

nonrabbit: North Sea Gas being the band and not some cheap form of fuel sent over to help out our cousins?
