The Dave's Picks' art has cleverly alluded to the specific venue and/or culture of the region in which released shows have been played. This is one of my favorites ("The Fox" inspired an even better show back on 5/19/77!)
Hoffman's ethereal cover art is a brilliant companion to the often dark and haunting performances on one of my favorite albums.
I love early Mascis (& Murph) - through "Bug", that is - and, for me, this is the catalogue's pinnacle; moreover, employment of Szabo's "Priscilla" is perhaps the penultimate marriage of art and title, not to mention correlation with the unconventional and iconoclastic music and themes within.../k

What can you say? Epic, mysterious,compulsive and the music wasn't half bad either
Oh how I loved this band and album.
"It's me on the cover of Argus. We shot it in the South of France – I'm wearing Ken Russell's helmet and cloak from The Devils and, I'm sorry to say, in our rush to get back to London, we left Roman Polanski's sword from Macbeth in the layby. There's a school of thought that the cover was the inspiration for Darth Vader. I think it is indeed one of the greatest, least known albums."
The top ten album covers, and its history El Pais / RollingStone Spencer Elden, the naked baby on the cover of Nevermind, has a great phrase to flirting with the girls: "Wanna see my penis ... again?". In 2007, in an interview with MTV, Elden said he feels weird with his place in history. "It's shocking that millions of people have seen me naked," said: "I feel like the biggest porn star in the world". At his parents only paid them $ 200 per session, but to Elden have paid much more to recreate the famous photo.

smint100: Good Lord, why did no one tell me about the radio.net! I've spent a joyful afternoon in the garden watching the strawberries ripen - I mean, editing a book - and listening to unadulterated Tull. Heaven!

ash: Is anyone aware of a recent statement from Ian saying he doesn't have COPD and it's only asthma? Just asking
Jun 1, 2022 9:21:29 GMT
rredmond: I thought it was both?
Jun 4, 2022 19:34:53 GMT
ash: One can be mistaken for the other because of similar symptoms but COPD is the nasty one! I'm talking an updated statement from Ian early this year.

marshall: No need to thank me by the way. I was a member of this Forum some year's ago but I forgot my log in details. I will do my best to contribute. I have been a Full can since the early singles and I have some fabulous memories as well as tales to tell.

steelmonkey: My new. secret, self identity: Full Can. California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?

ash: "California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?" Many reasons if your family has Cockney routes

steelmonkey: People my age learned of it and some of it from 'A Clockwork Orange', way back when.
Jul 4, 2022 2:05:35 GMT
steelmonkey: And I was taught that Tull members and crew called us civilian fans 'Billies' for Billy Bunter = Punter.

ash: My granddad would use Cockney rhyming slang now and then, more so if he was having a Darby. I will let him off seeing as he was born about half a mile from St Mary-le-Bow church.
