Posting coincidentally; (my favourite word). - A Little Light Music makes for a great (slightly bright) demo. The remaster is even brighter. audiophile stereo dealers: worst taste in music??? forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/audiophile-stereo-dealers-worst-taste-in-music.335525/#post-9688764 Petrofsk, Today at 7:32 AM I also make a point of always bringing my own music. I bring the music that I plan on listening to the most. I won't bring a brick walled CD, but I will bring music that I enjoy. At the most recent hi-fi show, I had two opposite reactions: when I played Jethro Tull's A Little Light Music, the rep made a note of the title, as he thought it made for a great demo. In another room, when I played the hi-res version of All Things Must Pass (off a USB), he ejected it after a couple of minutes (literally, like 2-3 minutes) to play the obligatory Diana Krall.
Personally, I'm always more impressed when I hear a recording with some limitations being played on a high-end set up. I know a great recording is going to sound great.
I prefer to hear what I actually plan on listening to.

Although I love the concept and music on this album,I always thought it very badly edited, the fading in and out of applause, the half snippets of introductions fading in and out also. No doubt IA wanted to get across that it was recorded in different venues and countries, but this is very clumsy and besides all the information we need about venues is on the back cover!
(Mind you, I complained when "Bursting Out" was stitched together and passed off as seemingly one show so it seems there is no pleasing me!)
But the crude editing makes "ALLM" an irritating listen . Music and sound quality excellent though.
jackinthegreen: Cream without Eric??? Santana without Carlos?? and not even with a stand-in player.....you're easily pleased, I reckon most people would not be happy to say the least...

jackinthegreen: If it was Scott that got Covid would they have played the gigs without a drummer?

ash: It's Tull not Cream and my answer stands. Now it there was no flute player...No flute no Tull . I've seen Ian play with just an ipod backing track it was great
May 3, 2022 16:04:21 GMT
jackinthegreen: "No flute, no Tull".......hmmmm tell that to MB when he's doing all the Tull stuff..
May 3, 2022 20:18:27 GMT
jackinthegreen: and I've seen Ian doing his one man thing with just the backing track too, but that's not billed as a Jethro Tull concert.....
May 3, 2022 20:19:44 GMT
jackinthegreen: I do agree he's brilliant at playing to his own backing tracks though
May 3, 2022 20:20:48 GMT
ash: My first answer stands in stone

goodwolfman38: Just around the corner from what i understand will be the 40th anniversary edition of Broadsword & The Beast due in July, as i noticed a few weeks ago with an interview with Ian this one will be large box set, hopefully no delays

rredmond: Well the radio.net plug in at the bottom of the site shocked me a bit!

maddogfagin: Yes it's a great addition to the Forum and I'm hoping radio.net will provide this service for years to come
May 14, 2022 15:58:55 GMT
jackinthegreen: Where is the link to this radio.net.......I don't see it folks
May 15, 2022 1:11:08 GMT
maddogfagin: Immediately below this shout box and above the visitor numbers/flags.

jackinthegreen: Cheers MD, I can only see the link from the "Home" page, but disappears when looking at threads etc, so find if I open it up in a new window it then plays constantly
May 15, 2022 13:29:06 GMT
jackinthegreen: So I have it bookmarked to open at any time....nice in the background if reading on t'internet
May 15, 2022 13:31:36 GMT
jackinthegreen: Did anyone on the forum see Tull at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester in September.....
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!
