Hope you enjoyed Edinburgh. I'll be over there soon however I'll miss the Festival this year. My daughter lives in Edinburgh and as a matter of fact teaches in Ian's old school - I have indeed searched around the classrooms looking for evidence "Ian Scott Anderson woz here" or something much more eloquent
I was looking around for details on John's composing for Troilus and Cressida - this production seems to have only good/great reviews, and found a link via this interview John gave while in Italy this year or last.
See question/answers on composing at 17.53 and at 22.38
John's soundcloud page with excerpts form Troilus and Cressida.
Thanks for these two clips. Have a great time up in Edinburgh when you are there. I am always amazed though when I come back to Edinburgh. Just a fantastic city that has a great "feel to it". I seem to remember that IA lived in the Murrayfield / Saughton area when he was younger?
maddogfagin: I would guess that with the "recognition" he's now got with the association with IA he'll be in demand for session and production work. Maybe he could be asked to remix the later Tull albums after Stormwatch if SW hasn't the time.

sealion: Mmm, my Signature copy arrived yesterday and I've now got most of the way through it. It's certainly a lovely book but worth the £275?

sealion: Essentially we're paying £235 for a number, a 7" vinyl (which, let's be honest, isn't that great), 2 art prints, IA's autograph and a box. Oh yes, and my name listed in the back. A pair of tickets for the 2020 tour would've been a nice gesture....

sealion: Do I regret it? Not really, because it's Jethro Tull, but, perversely,I probably would've done if I'd only gone for the cheaper version! That said I'm not sure how the price difference between the two versions can be justified...

sealion: Jethro Tull the prog years? So it's Passion Play in it's entirety then!

maddogfagin: That would please Bernie

steelmonkey: As it is I may have to travel far to see this tour

steelmonkey: Got new job, starting Feb 3,2020, Tull book and Stormwatch, all just in time for Thanksgiving. Prsent and promise to self: Catch up on Tull forum this weekend. Fair warning: reviews and rants/raves/nonsense looming like the big bear cover of Stormwatch.
