My God by Jethro Tull (know it by any chance? ) on Last.fm Jethro Tull radio. Last.fm is really great to exchange music and listen to your golden oldies, you should check it out if youre not allready on there
Don't tell anyone that the Division Bell could easily pass as my favourite Floyd album.
Been to all the Toronto/Hamilton area Floyd shows. The bass was the lowest/loudest I've ever heard on the Division Bell tour. I play Pink Floyd as regular as the mighty Tull. No doubt. Other than Tull "MU" & "Repeat" I'm listening to The Guess Who remasters these days. Eh. I can also be accused of playing too much Beatles/Wings. Supertramp albums. ELO is sneaking about too.
Flook is a great choice and I think they also have used the Pat Olwell bamboo flute like IA at some time or another if not still. I am having a brew and listening to a little Carlos Nunez on the stereo atm.
That was good - I know nowt about the music of Oz at anytime really over the years. Not sure about Tull's history in Oz either Where are all the Australian fans? ;D

"My God Tull have to be the most INCREDIBLE band to hit our shoes since The Beatles! Last week Tull completely stunned Australian audiences with their concert performances. Many words could be used to describe the leader of the group, Ian Anderson. Lets start with GENIUS and throw in MASTER OF SHOWMANSHIP, the second WIZARD OF OZ, the most lunatic of MUSIC MASTERS, HYPNOTIST, a brilliant flautist, superb singer, the idiot CONDUCTOR. Never have I enjoyed a concert more."
"I was able to see them in concert three times. The crowds in Melbourne and Auckland were the most responsive that I’ve seen for a long time and I believe in Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane they were very much the same. But how could you not respond to the music they’ve been playing."
chester: It looks like- with people going back to their jobs- the number of daily guests on the JT Forum has gone back down to the 500s range, instead of the 600s and even 700s.

maddogfagin: Still a more than healthy number of visitors although it's difficult to know what percentage of google "bots" trawl forums doing whatever they do - anyone know what "bots" actually do ?
Jun 1, 2020 13:57:36 GMT
rredmond: I thought they gathered information for search engines?
Jun 2, 2020 13:07:30 GMT
maddogfagin: Would that be general info or searches into users details, passwords etc ?
Jun 3, 2020 7:06:57 GMT
rredmond: I think they just troll around the boards gathering public information. If you shut them down, then things like google searches will find the forums less. The more info you have out there the easier it is to be found... whether for good or for bad.
Jun 5, 2020 0:19:08 GMT
rredmond: So the Google will find any searches for Jethro Tull forums or proboards. But if someone searched to figure out what Barriemore Barlow's favorite Tull song is, it wouldn't have that information. So they wouldn't know it was Mouse Police.

rredmond: I help run a couple D&D forums, and when one of them stopped allowing the bots, his forum went from like page 1 of the searches, to way down in the pack.

maddogfagin: I wonder how many of the so called bots are actually the tull trolls instead

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!

maddogfagin: Thanks futureshock - hope you're ok likewise

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.
