I thought the live orchestra DVD was a fantastic and well worth addition to the Tull pile;;;played it a lot when it was new and crowed to friends far and wide about the incomparable 'Mother Goose' upgrade...sorta embarrassing when it was pointed out that the MG redo was old news...and that I had sat on it for a few years, on the Aqualung Live CD, somehow not noticing...I had a good excuse...I hitch-hiked from SF to LA and back for the concert that included distribution of the free CD...and gave to to someone who picked me up on the way home and gave me a lengthy lift and seemed impressed that I traveled almost 800 miles RT for a Tull concert...I got my hands on the CD a year or so later when they were piled up at the used CD store...but, i guess, threw it in the pile without paying attention and never heard the latter day goose till it was included on the orchestra DVD...I thought Florian was pretty great from the very start...back then being pro-Florian didn't mean risking being accused of undervaluing MB..it still shouldn't...
geostrehl: Do you guys and gals think Ian likes Steely Dan? I've been thinking about this recently. Ian has stated that he doesn't listen to much music, but I'm sure he's heard a lot of the Dan.

tryin2b: Hi Geostrehl U gotta luv Steely.have u heard "everything must go"? but i gotta say as a player, I don't feel the same groove. It's the difference between Cajun and Appallacian. I love them both

geostrehl: Everything Must Go is a fantastic album. Behind Tull, Steely Dan is my fav. It's busy and complicated, but not in a prog way (like Tull), but more in a jazz way. I just wonder what Ian thinks of Donald Fagen, and the other way around.

nonrabbit: Steely Dan were a huge part of my teenage years in the early 70's. Had every album - listened daily - dreamed of seeing them Live.
