This is meant to provide a bit of quick fun here and there, kinda like the Word Association thread. It works like this:
I'll post the titles of two Tull songs. The next person who comes along will choose which of those two songs he likes better and put it up against a new tune. The third person will pick from the two posted by the second person and put the winning track against another new one, and so on.
So, say I post My Sunday Feeling and Aqualung. Perhaps maddogfagin comes along and chooses My Sunday Feeling and puts it against With You There to Help Me. Then nonrabbit joins the fun and chooses With You There to Help Me and puts it against Strange Avenues. Steelmonkey finds the thread and picks Strange Avenues and puts it against Budapest, and so on.
All you really need to post are the song you like better from the previous post and a new song for it to face, but comments on the matchups and other people's picks are welcome, of course.
maddogfagin: May 7 is the 127th day of the year (128th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. 238 days remain until the end of the year.

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.

rabey: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately because Ian/Tull is doing his own book when I sent a request to find John I got stonewalled, even though I have a signed contract by Ian from 2013 stating I was doing a DVD version of The book. I also have had trouble

rabey: I guess after 5 years Ian forgot this even existed. Imean, he never even listed my book with all the other books that have been out of print for decades, yet mine and Tim S still have books in print and we're not mentioned.

rabey: I just get the impression that this AND having just dealt with Tull are all they care about really and it peeves me when the truth is when I first got my original contract with a US publisher to write the book with quotes on 3 other books on ELP,Crimson,

rabey: and YES, I contacted both Martin and Dave from AND and offered involvement in writing and photography. but Dave said no interest and martin was happy to get his photos printed just for credit. Later Daves book arrived and martin wanted 100 bucks a shot.

rabey: Anyway, The publisher refused the cost of photos, Martin wrote the only negative review of the book in print except for Amazon where a few stinkers stalled it's movement, but basically there was nothing advertising the book outside the UK.

rabey: I have to find a better way to post.

steelmonkey: Fights about history, public knowledge and more personally researched knowledge are pretty hard to untangle...but nothing takes away your contributions to total Tull information.

rabey: Very Kind, Steelmonkey!
