My oldest surviving Tull shirt is Broadsword era, but I now wear them 2 or 3 times and they they're stored away. But it does remind me of those wonderful merchandise flyers that used to be in the concert programmes of yore
www.chesterhopkins.co.uk/ The only trouble is it's only available in size M BTW If there's a thread somewhere on the forum for t shirts etc. please tell me as my eyes are now like organ stops searching for it
It'll be on ebay sure enough young sir. You just have to wade through all the other Tull items there - what a chore
Hadn't realised this thread was over two years old. How time flies when you're enjoying yourself.
There are a few T shirts that I have which were done for specific occasions. The UK Tull conventions were such a case especially the first in '89 where we had around 300 printed even though the hall the Convention was held in could only hold 200 due to fire regulations. Most attendees at the Convention bought a shirt and the 100 or so that were left were sold at that year's Cropredy Festival by Ian Burgess on the Friends of Fairport Stall. It was the profit from the shirts which allowed Graham Smith and myself to recoup our initial outlay and "break even" even after sending a donation to the NSPCC.
I still have one of those Tull "flute badge" things, although I call it a tie clip, it has two pins with the usual pinch clips tie clips have. I used to have an original TOTRTYTD yellow T-shirt but that's history. I still have a black one with the stick/bag hiker image, but I forget what tour that's from. I also went through half a dozen copies of the vinyl Aqualung because our turntables at the time had tonearms with substantial capacity to erode surfaces they touched.
futureshock: Here's wishing everyone persistent health! Times are getting more optimistic! Activism is UP, and fear of getting involved in important issues, is dropping faster than the Vegas odds on Trump being elected again. Cheers!

stormsongs: Hi. Newbie, first time here as I have a question I can't get an answer to......I have a vivid memory of buying Lifes a Long Song in 71 and it had a gatefold sleeve....but I can't find any evidence of that or a copy with that sleeve...

maddogfagin: Welcome to the JT Forum stormsongs. Not seen a UK Life is a long song gatefold sleeve but there's no doubting they may have been some overseas releases issued this way.

futureshock: So, IF you are musical yourself, what are you doing with the CoronaCoda lockdown experience and maybe extra personal time available to find or create more music, or explore instrument playing? How has dealing with musicians changed? Gigs? Spinoff ideas?

maddogfagin: Listening to a lot of concert recordings via CD and finding some great music on youtube which I've never heard before. My days of playing guitar are behind me these days due to my damn fingers not wanting to work properly.

steelmonkey: Would you like to hear a perfectly constructed, note,rhythm,lyrical and atmosphere piece of Tull perfection? Yes? Try 'Saboteur' on 'Under Wraps'. Flawless.

maddogfagin: Under Wraps is an often maligned album by a minority but to the majority it stands amongst the finest of their eighties output. A great album.

steelmonkey: Under Wraps is sui generis. Strong everything. Something(s) about it amaze and astound with each listen.

steelmonkey: Double work shifts in surging hospital to allow 2 week vacation soon...miss my friends in the Tull treehouse but back soon. Breaks at work have gone the way of the dinosaurs.

piscesguy: It looks like someone else has taken my moniker piscesguy and added the name jack prentiss to it. That's okay but I cannot locate an earlier post I had left now. Does anyone know how to resolve this? thank you

maddogfagin: Please see my PM to you.

steelmonkey: I prefer Scorpios, Leos, Taurases( Tauri?), Cancers and Capricorns but Pisces on the bubble of all right.

maddogfagin: So what's wrong with us Aquarians then. I'm gonna write to your President and complain
Jul 13, 2020 13:26:20 GMT
steelmonkey: I go on binges of long forgotten ( Jefferson Airplane, CSNY, Humble Pie), Overlooked releases ( Zappa, Prince, PIL) and just plain musical vitamins ( Traveling Wilburys, Pink Floyd) and then remember life is short and I should revert to all Tull all day.
