I know the codpiece generated a lot of negative feedback form outisde the church...but damn, that's a real Tull shot....1975 was a VERY good year.
The Codpiece got an airing even earlier than 75.
Yeah. The sensible codpiece years, 72 and 3. Though I did not think so at the time the 74 and 5 look do now fill me with a lower case embarrassment, particularly when sharing images outside the ranks. Ditto the well shaped hair of 74 and 5, minor case geekazoik, or golly, you must be one of those rock and roll stars huh mister? I do recall that guy in Black Oak Arkansas wore almost the identical tights and codpiece, and with that music, that was truly something better left in its moments, or never seen at all. I get a similar ill buzz off of Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead's short shorts years in the 80's. Would not think jack of that one, as it was a common look at the time, even on NBA and college basketball players. But I have one friend on Facebook who never fails to make mention of it when I post a video from that era, it has actually put me off posting a few. I do recall few if any of the women in the audience minded...at all.
From a RollingStone concert review published in January 1977, when they published their large format newspaper, I bought a copy (at an airport, I remember that much) and having discovered photography from living in British Columbia (years later, it must have been), for some reason I decided to take a large format photograph of the full-page concert review of Tull. I attach the image of the negative, which measures 4x3 inches, a monster of detail. At one point I had ordered a 16x20 inch print of it, but that print is long ago lost. However, I JUST YESTERDAY found the original negative! In perfect condition, held in a paper protective sleeve as good negatives should be. I offer this up as the latest entry in the TULL LOST AND FOUND BIN. NOTE: I immediately and have always disagreed with the reviewers summation that Anderson was presenting a "carefully choreographed contempt" (as said in the review). I think TULL was quite obviously a "large arena act" that was designed to be successful, and with that comes certain kinds of adjustments that maybe the reviewer hasn't considered. Having been to some of the largest arena/forum concerts available, I can also understand if some characters get way out of hand and artists do feel contempt for them. Whatever.
steelmonkey: 12 days till Tull and it looks like 50/50 chance of A Passion Play excerpt.

steelmonkey: The countdown from today (10) to Tull liftoff on July 9, will bring memories of being herded into the school cafeteria to watch space rocket launches on TV in the 60s. Amazing that they did that with arrays of computers that had less power than our phones

fluteinthegallery: If I had to put my love for Tull in to one word, it would be "everything". This band means everything to me.
Jul 15, 2019 3:59:50 GMT
steelmonkey: I would agree. I love music, I love rock and roll but my love for Tull is it's own category and bigger than the other two,
