Let me join in wishing everyone health and happiness in 2019. That might sound chirpy considering the state of the world....that's why I am wishing only health a happiness anything more like some logic or sane leaders or things being more fair for poor people, discriminated against people and especially immigrants would be a longshot for 2019. A just God would see to it that Ian Anderson released an album of new material before concerts planned in July.
A GUID NEW YEAR TO ALL AND ALL THE VERY BEST FOR 2019
From Bonnie Scotland
Wishing for less greed, less power freaks, less hate - more love, fairness and lots and lots of TULL.
A great track from a Skye band that combines traditional music and electronic.
Air Fàir an Là means At Dawn Of Day.
Use your imagination; this is the captain of the 'Seal Driver' and what happens when his boat gets into trouble out in the Atlantic with the cold spray flying in, His crew -back on land, takes him in hand and tries to bring him back alive:)

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,

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.
