Noticing that it was printed the wrong way round on the horizontal -- Ian's coat was ripped on his left-hand side -- I flipped the image in Photoshop, plus some major work to get rid of creases ... which is the one you've posted. It's all in the detail ...
Thanks tullpress. So apart from being one year out and the wrong way round, the picture I posted was OK. Cheers!
And the accordion is still alive and kicking today.
I grew up in a tenement flat in Glasgow that consisted of two rooms, put your hankies away, the reason I mention it is that in that small cramped space there was a piano that took up loads of space in the bedroom (polished,with an empty vase on top) and a large accordion under the recess bed. Ours wasn't the only house in the close that had that either. I can't remember anyone actually playing the accordion, think it belonged to my deceased grandfather but it was viewed on a regular basis.
"Ladies of leisure, with their eyes on the back roads; All looking for strangers, to whom they extend welcomes With a smile and a glimpse of pink knees and elbows; Of satin and velvet --- good ladies, good fortune..........Ladies"
"They sing of their heroes: of solitary soldiers; Invested in good health and manner most charming. Whose favors are numbered (none the less well intended) By hours in a minute; by those ladies who bless them............Ladies"
The Topless Tull pix probably rooted in a nasty swipe at Zep type groupie exploitation/excess I'd guess....I mean...who the hell can he be if he never had V.D.? Thin line between humor/parody and vulgar...as I've learned the hard way...and the bitch is...the lines moves...years later when it's out of your control anyway.....I mean...you listen to old tapes of Kennedy and Johnson talking bout helping Nigras and Coloreds....and you remember how the line moves. I remember 'chicks' in college talking about needing 'more chicks' on the frisbee team or whatever....Tull chicks in 2013 better mean a side line in Poultry at the salmon farm not women listening to Tull !
I'll bet there is a ledge or something holding up John Evan above everyone's head. This may have been a pic that Ian was not pleased with. Clive looked okay with it. Bloody photographers and their tricks.
Patti you are insane. You are our gold piece. I am sticking this thing on this Facebook bit where one guesses who someone is from a picture from youth. I would not have guessed were it shown in a different venue. People may guess on Facebook because they know of my affliction, moreso than they ever would have guessed. I would not have guessed. I cannot say it has any resemblance I would otherwise connect. For instance looking at pics of the Beatles when they were 6 to 8 I have no trouble at all making the connection. Including the bit from a different thread as to when Ian goes away from the plan, best place to find that is in any interview session, but I believe particularly the ones he did for Rockline, at least 3. But I do recall him doing an interview, (well I am reminded of it maybe every 5 years when I play it) of an interview he did with the BBC guy Brian Mathews in 82 for Broadsword when Ian goes off on some description as a result of Mathews asking why interviewers only want to talk to Ian, part of the description being, "Well, if they would put on the false beard and do what I do". A friend and I used to really dig that false beard bit, truly found it borderline hysterical wit, and looking at that kid, o man would I like to try the false beard bit out on him. Thanks Patti!

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,

snaffler: I haven't listened to anything as refreshing for decades (re Jethro Tull), as a couple of recordings of Martin's 50th Anniversary US tour! The songs sound so reinvigorated by Dan Crisp's vocals. I saw Martin last year and the vibe in the band seemed great
