Both brilliant. You know this whole Martin Barre thing can also be summed up as adding a new layer to the Tull story.
Just a thought too - what's the bet that the whole Martin leaving - Martin coming back is all adding to the build up/momentum to a Jethro Tull concert with Martin Barre in a year or two? Think about it, if they kept going it would/ was getting stale whereas if they had a mutual break (kids are grown up- money in the bank) then a reunion would be very sweet. Besides they really have got separate and equally great ideas.
Nice one John. An underrated album but one that MB must be well pleased with.
Fantastic adaptation! Dare I say, I'm starting to like Martin's musical direction better than Ian's. For example, take this sublime reworking of Hymn 43:
Yep agreed Martins musical direction interests me far more than Ians these days. Cant wait for the blues/rock cd he has promised for 2014 ,hope theres some new origonal songs on it. Dans voice is really special .

jackinthegreen: I'm having a memory blank......has Benefit had the book version done yet?

Catqualung: jackinthegreen, as far as I know the book box set of Benefit is still due to be realized, but it has not appeared yet, as well that of Broadsword and the Beast, they should be the next in the row

theothertull: Didn't know if I should laugh or cry, pathetic or what, "I played with Paul McCartney; well like a demo, no one has ever heard it, but it's big Japan. Can't remember if Paul was in the studio at the time of the demo, but ya mate, John, Paul, Ringo and I."
