My God by Jethro Tull (know it by any chance? ) on Last.fm Jethro Tull radio. Last.fm is really great to exchange music and listen to your golden oldies, you should check it out if youre not allready on there
Don't tell anyone that the Division Bell could easily pass as my favourite Floyd album.
Been to all the Toronto/Hamilton area Floyd shows. The bass was the lowest/loudest I've ever heard on the Division Bell tour. I play Pink Floyd as regular as the mighty Tull. No doubt. Other than Tull "MU" & "Repeat" I'm listening to The Guess Who remasters these days. Eh. I can also be accused of playing too much Beatles/Wings. Supertramp albums. ELO is sneaking about too.
Flook is a great choice and I think they also have used the Pat Olwell bamboo flute like IA at some time or another if not still. I am having a brew and listening to a little Carlos Nunez on the stereo atm.
That was good - I know nowt about the music of Oz at anytime really over the years. Not sure about Tull's history in Oz either Where are all the Australian fans? ;D

"My God Tull have to be the most INCREDIBLE band to hit our shoes since The Beatles! Last week Tull completely stunned Australian audiences with their concert performances. Many words could be used to describe the leader of the group, Ian Anderson. Lets start with GENIUS and throw in MASTER OF SHOWMANSHIP, the second WIZARD OF OZ, the most lunatic of MUSIC MASTERS, HYPNOTIST, a brilliant flautist, superb singer, the idiot CONDUCTOR. Never have I enjoyed a concert more."
"I was able to see them in concert three times. The crowds in Melbourne and Auckland were the most responsive that I’ve seen for a long time and I believe in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane they were very much the same. But how could you not respond to the music they’ve been playing."

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.
May 7, 2019 23:08:40 GMT
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
May 7, 2019 23:11:47 GMT
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.
May 7, 2019 23:13:11 GMT
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,
May 7, 2019 23:21:53 GMT
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.
May 7, 2019 23:25:00 GMT
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!
