Wow......what a prize of a video and brief vacation. Job still hell but their greed in wanting to add to my work by forwarding audios of voice mails has resulted in restoration of You Tube capacity. Sadly, I lost private office in last year's work shake out so less chance to hide out with videos and Tull site in general....but trending for better.
Midnight Rambler Jam by Jethro Tull from Anaheim, California 19 June 1971
A maddogfagin/bunkerfan production
Nice one John.
This really proves that by 1971 Martin's prowess on the guitar and compositional skills had improved 100%.
Shame in many respects that this track never made it onto a legit live or studio album.
Thanks Graham, it's really a labour of love and for those who may be wondering how it works, maddogfagin sends me the music and all I do is try and put some photo's to match the track then upload to our youtube channel.
I remember buying the blue vinyl bootleg 'Nothing is Easy" of this Anaheim '71 show after I saw the band a few weeks later in Seattle ("SeeTull' according to Ian) and Martin really did rock. But the next year, on the Thick as a Brick tour, I felt Martin had REALLY improved, his playing had become stratospheric.. You can hear that improvement on the bootleg Ticketron, where he also plays the Midnight Rambler bit Live in Norfolk, Virginia, April 22nd, 1972. Tull at their explosive peak in my opinion. I bought Ticketron on green vinyl and listened to it hundreds of times back in the day. Martin has been my favorite guitarist for almost 50 years, but I felt his best playing was from '72-'77. Unfortunately he became less and less prominent in the Tull sound as the years went on.
rredmond: Orion is good stuff.

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."

steelmonkey: Spring has sprung in California...or, at least, here in the land of two seasons, 'not rainy season' has begun.
