A happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year to everyone here at the Forum, especially to all the regular contributors, far too numerous to mention individually but you know who you are and also to my fellow moderators Pattie, Bernie and John.
Special Thanks to Sir Remy for making this download available! A Jethro Tull Christmas With Ian Anderson From: Douglas Grant LINK 1 Length: 59:00 LINK 2 Multi-instrumental musician, prolific writer, distinctive singer and conspicuous flutist Ian Anderson of the British band Jethro Tull shares colorful Christmas memories, and presents tracks from the "cynical and grumpy" Jethro Tull Christmas Album. Anderson talks about his relationship with the flute and relearning to play the instrument properly after three decades of recording and touring. Broadly classified at times as Progressive Rock, Jethro Tull's music spans many genres including Jazz, Folk, Classical and Blues, in ways that are as rich and brilliant as they are unique.
This humorous and engaging one-hour special provides a definite counterpoise to more conventional holiday programming fare, and is well-suited to a wide age range, given Jethro Tull's lengthy and illustrious history which began in the 1960's. The band has produced 30 albums and performed more than 2500 concerts in 40 countries. Engineer and Producer Douglas Grant has also included original blends of a few of the band's recordings which Tull fans may find interesting.
The program is newscast compatible, with optional content filling the hh:01-hh:06 slot; there is also a 60sec bed at 28min past the hour for those needing the hole. For full T&C, see the Information for Stations section. Attachments: 30 second promo edit with bed, and Ian Santa program graphics.
Happy Holidays everyone! This place continues to be awesome! And Jim! JIM!! Thanks for those Links, can't wait to listen today. And a thanks to Remy as well! Hope everyone has an incredible and happy holiday season, no matter what you believe or not, or your traditions.
I Wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
They said there'll be snow at christmas They said there'll be peace on earth But instead it just kept on raining A veil of tears for the virgin's birth I remember one christmas morning A winters light and a distant choir And the peal of a bell and that christmas tree smell And their eyes full of tinsel and fire
They sold me a dream of christmas They sold me a silent night And they told me a fairy story 'till I believed in the israelite And I believed in father christmas And I looked to the sky with excited eyes 'till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn And I saw him and through his disguise
I wish you a hopeful christmas I wish you a brave new year All anguish pain and sadness Leave your heart and let your road be clear They said there'll be snow at christmas They said there'll be peace on earth Hallelujah noel be it heaven or hell The christmas we get we deserve
Bon Nadal a tots els membres de aquest forum! Remy
Holiday Season is rush hour at the psych ward so sorry for my late response. I wish all of you, my dear cyber-Tull friends, far-flung but very close in my heart, a Merry Christmas and special hoopes for an extraordinary 2017: Health, Happiness and much TULL.
My private holiday moment will be a nice, loud, 'Change of Horses' in my car when my work shift ends today and i go home to two days off work.
Merry Christmas to all JETHRO TULL Forum Members!!! I wish I could visit every country & state where all of you live and have a Convention. Years ago I never imagined the things I could learn in a place so warm and fun to be like this. I have many limitations but in my heart it's a never ending place to learn about music and each other.
2016 is almost over but new adventures are just around the corner. I can't wait to see Martin Barre again! With so much to look forward to, I want everyone to rejoice in the celebration which suits each of us best. Happy Hanukkah, Happy Solstice & Merry Christmas JETHRO TULL FORUM !!! The FUN is just beginning
This raises a very interesting question... Is it possible to change that drastically, and that quickly... Can it be done, or can this kind of psychological change only be achieved over a substantial period of time?
futureshock: Here's wishing everyone persistent health! Times are getting more optimistic! Activism is UP, and fear of getting involved in important issues, is dropping faster than the Vegas odds on Trump being elected again. Cheers!

stormsongs: Hi. Newbie, first time here as I have a question I can't get an answer to......I have a vivid memory of buying Lifes a Long Song in 71 and it had a gatefold sleeve....but I can't find any evidence of that or a copy with that sleeve...
Jun 12, 2020 14:25:44 GMT
maddogfagin: Welcome to the JT Forum stormsongs. Not seen a UK Life is a long song gatefold sleeve but there's no doubting they may have been some overseas releases issued this way.

futureshock: So, IF you are musical yourself, what are you doing with the CoronaCoda lockdown experience and maybe extra personal time available to find or create more music, or explore instrument playing? How has dealing with musicians changed? Gigs? Spinoff ideas?
Jun 14, 2020 23:01:49 GMT
maddogfagin: Listening to a lot of concert recordings via CD and finding some great music on youtube which I've never heard before. My days of playing guitar are behind me these days due to my damn fingers not wanting to work properly.

steelmonkey: Would you like to hear a perfectly constructed, note,rhythm,lyrical and atmosphere piece of Tull perfection? Yes? Try 'Saboteur' on 'Under Wraps'. Flawless.
Jun 22, 2020 21:05:43 GMT
maddogfagin: Under Wraps is an often maligned album by a minority but to the majority it stands amongst the finest of their eighties output. A great album.
Jun 28, 2020 6:43:28 GMT
steelmonkey: Under Wraps is sui generis. Strong everything. Something(s) about it amaze and astound with each listen.

steelmonkey: Double work shifts in surging hospital to allow 2 week vacation soon...miss my friends in the Tull treehouse but back soon. Breaks at work have gone the way of the dinosaurs.

piscesguy: It looks like someone else has taken my moniker piscesguy and added the name jack prentiss to it. That's okay but I cannot locate an earlier post I had left now. Does anyone know how to resolve this? thank you

maddogfagin: Please see my PM to you.
Jul 10, 2020 6:41:59 GMT
steelmonkey: I prefer Scorpios, Leos, Taurases( Tauri?), Cancers and Capricorns but Pisces on the bubble of all right.

maddogfagin: So what's wrong with us Aquarians then. I'm gonna write to your President and complain
Jul 13, 2020 13:26:20 GMT
steelmonkey: I go on binges of long forgotten ( Jefferson Airplane, CSNY, Humble Pie), Overlooked releases ( Zappa, Prince, PIL) and just plain musical vitamins ( Traveling Wilburys, Pink Floyd) and then remember life is short and I should revert to all Tull all day.
