Wow......what a prize of a video and brief vacation. Job still hell but their greed in wanting to add to my work by forwarding audios of voice mails has resulted in restoration of You Tube capacity. Sadly, I lost private office in last year's work shake out so less chance to hide out with videos and Tull site in general....but trending for better.
Midnight Rambler Jam by Jethro Tull from Anaheim, California 19 June 1971
A maddogfagin/bunkerfan production
Nice one John.
This really proves that by 1971 Martin's prowess on the guitar and compositional skills had improved 100%.
Shame in many respects that this track never made it onto a legit live or studio album.
Thanks Graham, it's really a labour of love and for those who may be wondering how it works, maddogfagin sends me the music and all I do is try and put some photo's to match the track then upload to our youtube channel.
I remember buying the blue vinyl bootleg 'Nothing is Easy" of this Anaheim '71 show after I saw the band a few weeks later in Seattle ("SeeTull' according to Ian) and Martin really did rock. But the next year, on the Thick as a Brick tour, I felt Martin had REALLY improved, his playing had become stratospheric.. You can hear that improvement on the bootleg Ticketron, where he also plays the Midnight Rambler bit Live in Norfolk, Virginia, April 22nd, 1972. Tull at their explosive peak in my opinion. I bought Ticketron on green vinyl and listened to it hundreds of times back in the day. Martin has been my favorite guitarist for almost 50 years, but I felt his best playing was from '72-'77. Unfortunately he became less and less prominent in the Tull sound as the years went on.
jackinthegreen: Yes MD, well worth catching, just as good as our Scottish ones I believe

futureshock: The secret language of birds: millions of yrs old. Just 18+ yrs ago, someone tackled that idea and radiated music back on the topic. That's why it's one of the best reviewed solo albums out there! Chirp that in your blender and take it to the riverside.

JTull 007: A wallaby is a general name for about 30 species of macropod which are smaller than kangaroos and are found across Australia.

maddogfagin: And Devon & Cornwall for some reason. There have been multiple sightings of marsupials in the area over the years although not recently. Possibly been eaten by the legendary Beast of Bodmin perhaps ? 🐱👤

futureshock: "Macropod". That sounds like the ultimate. "Hello, my name is J.P.Carruthers, Macropod, Intended At Large. My podcast is in Wales. I play the glass harmonica in 7 languages and edit outgoing Sumerian braille. Please leave a message."

maddogfagin: Macropod sounds like an overlarge ipod, as opposed to a minipod used by small furry animals.

steelmonkey: I am seeing the great Richard Thompson tonight at a stand up venue, the Venerable Fillmore in SF. The gig should be fun... I should be strong.

futureshock: Ages ago, I saw Mr. Thompson at the Vancouver Folk Fest, but I worked fence security and was far away, couldn't hear much. Just being there was amazing though, near the musicians all weekend, saw amazing things. Live music is BEST!

steelmonkey: 'Tragic busy at work but celebrating 44th anniversary of best Tull show ever: Feb. 5, 1975 in El Paso,Texas, one of two gigs inserted in between the famous, 5 night run in LA. Listened to War Child and think 'Two Fingers is better than 'Lick Fingers'.
Feb 5, 2019 20:34:31 GMT
maddogfagin: War Child is a great album, criminally underrated in the music press but loved by the vast majority of fans.

ash: I really like War Child. Skating Away plays every time I boot my PC
