I posted this on the General Board on the "Separated At Birth" thread...hadn't noticed this thread yet...lol...but everytime I see a photo of Martin wearing that red jumpsuit with the big "A" ont it...

...I am reminded of the little guy in the middle of this photo:
The "A" era must have been one of the worst transitional periods in the band's history...even for Martin. I wonder if he caught some teasing about his attire being similar to that of Alvin?
...everybody's on the stage and it seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience...
From my documentation here at Launceston Towers it was, I believe, Plymouth Guildhall, 4th March 1972. You don't backdrops like that anymore do you.
They still do in some parts of Ireland Went to see a band in Donegal and before they came on stage I was looking around and thought the velvet drapes could do with a good clean ....and there was a glitter ball as well....and they sold raffle tickets in the interval ;D
Yeah...look at that 'A' picture where the guys are waiting for the finger paints to be brought to the rubber room....Barre and Craney look like they are trying not to puke, Pegg and Jobson are, at best 'not amused' and Ian seems to be congratulating himself on his great idea for a photo shoot theme.
As bad as those uniforms may have been, it is the least flattering picture I have seen from this period. Poor Martin. O my the indignities he has suffered. In real time under stage light I don't recall them looking anywhere near that bad, in fact Ian and Martin looked kind of good. In fact Martin hitting those clean Black Sunday notes before Ians arrival dispelled any notion that this could possibly be something other than Jethro Tull, uniforms be damned.Gotta admit Martin is a good sport.
gleamed this info from the interview on the other thread when asked Ian said most of Tull's stage outfits were provided by Angels theatrical costumes who are still going strong and indeed have huge retro costume sales.
steelmonkey: Thank You for interview and interview sharing. Very Cool.

futureshock: Hello again! I hope everyone is staying healthy and applying their newfound isolation-affected times and circumstances to beneficial activities so that years from now we can all tell younger generations how we survived this ordeal smartly as best possible!

nonrabbit: Hello Futureshock! Great to hear from you. Hope you're staying healthy too....a metre apart from any other human (animal?) that tries to cross you path. I'm a librarian in a public library and we've asking people to make a diary of their experiences.....

chester: Do any of you [my fellow JT Forum members] miss watching live sporting events on TV, because of the virus, as much as I do?

steelmonkey: I miss reading about the Golden State Warriors and St Pauli in the second Bundesliga. I keep an eye on the baseball 'A's and the Brazil team, Botoafogo. My EPL Team is Tot Spurs and I take the time to hate two teams :HSV in Germany and Man United.

maddogfagin: Miss the sport on tv especially the football and now that summer is upon us the cricket. I fear that things will take a year or two to get back to how it was before all this shenanigans.

steelmonkey: I miss some watching and reading about sports but not enough to suddenly get interested in the Belarus Football League or Taiwanese baseball. Fans are going pretty far for a fix.

chester: I don't watch very much BUNDESLIGA, but it has returned after two months, with NO FANS allowed in the stadiums. I am starting to follow UFC mixed martial arts, which has returned as well.

tullmatrix: Is there some way to still get the Passion Play complete midi? I pasted the link into my browser and got a message that i was forbidden.

botanicman: Chester, The Plague has made me realize how little I actually do care about sports. I might not spend the time to watch when they do return!

pbinlostangeles: For us in So Cal, first time since 1974 no Long Beach Grand Prix and - apparently - no Indy 500. At least not on Memorial Day. Hopefully, they'll get this virus crud figured out before the start of MotoGP season

chester: NASCAR has restarted it's 2020 season but, like German soccer, to empty grandstands. I think catching a virus is low on the list of dangers that can befall a racing car driver.

chester: I know that I am late to the idea, but I have started wearing a mask while out in public. My Canadian officials have changed their stance from: not recommended to mildly suggested to strongly advised.
