Yeah, I quite like them too, good band! ;D Great choice, there's not enough footage of Tull from the Rock Island / Catfish era (well not that I've seen anyway!) I'd like to see Jack A Lynn back in the live set.
next up from my list ofwonderful things.....
Joan Osbourne with Donal Lunny & Jerry Douglas - St Teresa
What an incredible voice and great song. That's another 'Col recommended band/musician to add to the list '- did I ever thank you for Lau
Here's another one of mine, it keeps getting deleted from utube but thankfully keeps getting posted. (I put it somewhere else on here too but it's probably gone) This version tho ends a bit sudden oh and ignore the wolf with the rose !
Humble Pie - For Your Love [deleted by youtube - again]
brilliant stuff, great choices ;D (did I turn you on to Lau Ms Rabbit? If so don't thank me , thank them!!, and Quizz, this is a total self indulgence thread so if you find a full length Phoenix post it too)
I'm gonna get all controversial on you now gang........I think, in X amount of year time when all this classic rock stuff is history IMO the band that will be talked about as the most important/ influential wont be Zeppelin or Floyd it will be Queen. All the other great bands did what they did better than everbody else whereas Queen did everything better than everybody else!
Nice choices Graham. Whatever happened to Judie Tzuke? Is she still making music? And Neil Young...what a dude! Just one of those great artists that has always been able to move with the times without compromising his style. I loved his performances with Pearl Jam. Next up for him should be the Drive By Truckers. How good would Neil Young and these guys be together!?

First up, the Grateful Dead at Alpine Valley, Wisconsin on a summer night in 89, with the always ritualistic China/Rider to Deadheads, China Cat Sunflower>I Know You Rider to their actual titles. Secondly, from the Dead shows at Winterland in 10/74 before a year and a half hiatus, the one with a mini history of the Dead circa 68, (although this version is clipped and does not include the entire lyrical content) and likely my single favorite Dead piece moreso than song, The Other One. Thirdly, gool ol Jorma Kaukonen who most will at least know from his tenure as lead guitarist of the Jefferson Airplane with one of the finest of thousands of great love songs, Genesis, from his first solo record Quah from 72, this performance from 90. Next up forced to name the most potent live performance I have ever seen on video, I might offer this, Jimi's performance of Voodoo Chile at Woodstock, remarkably not in the original film. Batter number 5, one that usually gets me in my 50% Irish heart, Mary Black w luminary friends and Song For Ireland. And last up, actually not a video and there is an excellent one off fifties television on You Tube also from Sarah Vaughn, but this reading of Somewhere Over The Rainbow by Sarah off of her great live record "Sassy Swings The Tivoli", I believe to be the definitive one. My apologies for the size of this post, beware Sun Ra videos likely to follow.

May 19, 2022 1:10:39 GMT
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.
Jun 5, 2022 9:16:48 GMT
nonrabbit: Sounds joyous smint100 - all round!

marshall: Hello, I was at the concert at De Montfort Hall in September along with a number of other shows. I try to get to as many as possible in the UK.
Jun 21, 2022 9:54:11 GMT
jackinthegreen: Thank-you marshall I travelled down from Scotland for the Marillion Weekend there, great venue isn't it! It was standing downstairs, I guess the Tull gig was all seated....did they sell out? Please join in on the forum threads! Cheers

marshall: I live in Cumbria and I had booked for the Glasgow show which was,of course, cancelled.
Jun 23, 2022 12:39:45 GMT
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.
Jun 23, 2022 12:43:14 GMT
jackinthegreen: In that case welcome back marshall. I am a Full can too....if that's rhyming slang for Tull fan

steelmonkey: My new. secret, self identity: Full Can. California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?
Jun 27, 2022 1:50:44 GMT
ash: "California Cockney rhyming slang? Why not?" Many reasons if your family has Cockney routes
Jul 3, 2022 12:04:52 GMT
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.
