Apparently have been seized by Homeland Security, truly a shame, because, to my knowledge, they host no illegal music, going to pains to make sure those artists who do not want their live shows passed around, Allman Brothers, Hot Tuna and King Crimson are 3, are never included, or any copyrighted information. Without question this was the main site for live Tull, hopefully this will shift over to the Traders Den, also to my knowledge tightly and legally run. If I thought all this would result in their truly going after those thousands of sites that illegally use copyrighted information, I would think, ok, its worth the fight. Hope Dime A Dozen, a sight that truly covers so many musical territories outside the norm, everything really, is already back up and running as I type this. Amongst other things Traders Den covers nowhere near as much ground, nearly all rock.
The bottom line is very good news, I done been punked, fooled, geeked, all dat. Just a well executed April Fool's joke. A bit of sleuthing over at Traders Den on their discussion page revealed the joke, a very well executed and officious looking page, you merely need to click on the eagle to gain entry, I think someone said they had used the same one last year, must not have looked that day. btw if u are unaware, this full bore musical wonderland, very likely the single most wonderful music oriented outlet of any kind that I have ever encountered can be found here. www.dimeadozen.org. Probably ten times the amount of Tull as Traders den, and covering a gamut that literally includes everything I can think of, even a robust amount of classical and jazz and ethnic music. Yeah Mr G, the Dead ethos always did and still does include the "sharing" of the music, including having a tapers section after years and years of some tapers taking an overly priveleged approach and affecting the enjoyment of normal concert goers. Jerry's specific quote was after we're done with it, they can have it.
The tapers' section at dead concerts always looked surreal from a trippy distance...many of the tapers attached microphones to crutches and canes, hand-held and swaying or thumping with the beat....looked like a revolt brewing on leper island or something...not so diff from today when everyone profers their electronic device in the sky to suck in electrons for future consumption.
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.
Jun 28, 2020 6:43:28 GMT
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.
Jul 10, 2020 6:41:59 GMT
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.
