Duh! I looked into Martin's website about a week ago and didn't think to check the news page as the last time I had checked it had not been updated in a long time. I even sent him an email asking about the project. That'll learn me to pay more attention in future!
Looks like we are gonna hear some great new stuff from Mr Barre next year.
WOW! I was just checking out Martins site and the link on that page with pictures is from my little old hometown! cool! Hope he goes back there, I would love to see him in such an extremely small venue, plus I have free places to stay!
Any more news about this? When I first heard the rumour it was that Martin would record an all acoustic album of his own arrangements of lesser known Tull music. Now this would be something really special and I'm sure it would be a big success for Martin.
Then I heard it might be an album with a few Tull arrangements which wouldn't be so much fun in my opinion. For me, Martin is the unsung hero of Tull. I know he is respected as The Guitarist but Martin has had a lot of input to the arrangements and sound of the band that has gone uncredited to date. I think if he made an album by himself it will showcase just how important Martin is to Jethro Tull.
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!

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.
