Ah yes, I remember my first Tull as though it were only yesterday . . .
In fact, it was October 1983 in a rather damp house in Southsea where I'd just started my degree in Biomolecular Science at Portsmouth Poly. I knew a guy who was already there and it was he who introduced me to Tull (along with many other things) via Songs From the Wood and The Broadsword and the Beast, both of which played into my long-standing interest in the medieval. They remain two of my favourite albums and bring back that sense of freedom of living away from home for the first time.
For me, JT/IA more than any other group, brings back very specific memories. We've had our differences of opinion over the years, but the highlights of their (still growing) catalogue trump pretty much everything else (although I reserve a special place in my life for my first single - Remember You're a Womble)
steelmonkey: And I was taught that Tull members and crew called us civilian fans 'Billies' for Billy Bunter = Punter.
