Not a bootleg as such but a promo sent out to US radio stations to promote "The Secret Language of Birds" release. Would have come without a sleeve/inlay, either in a plain CD case or clear plastic sleeve.

A Passion Play Forum'73 in Inglewood, CA, is a re-release of the original vinyl pressing A Passion Play, Forum 73 (on the "Trade Mark Of Quality" label, reference TMOQ72010). The cover states it was recorded on the 20 July 1973. The original stunning album artwork has been accurately reproduced, and the proportions reduced to fit with the CD format. The CD cover is a professionally made, gloss finish, card sleave designed to resemble a miniature LP. There is a contemporary 1973 concert tour, black and white photograph on the rear cover. The CD is finished on top face with proper thermal ink, to resemble the surface of a black vinyl LP. The CD is silver finish rather than coloured CD-R, and is fitted into a paper and polythene inner sleave. A true collector's item!
Onto the performance itself. Someone has spent a lot of time remastering the entire recording - the sound quality is excellent. It is unclear whether the original master tape has been used for this exercise, or a second generation copy. Pilgrims Progress is the same recording. The difference between the two is like comparing night and day, however. All trace of tape hiss has been eradicated, and the music is crystal clear. The PA system can clearly be heard humming. Ian Anderson complains to the mixing desk about this during the performance. The only less-than-perfect song is "Cross Eyed Mary", where there is a static-like crackling distortion on the high notes. This could suggest that this CD has been created from a vinyl original, which would also explain the identical running order and timings as the vinyl release. Therefore A Passion Play is edited, no doubt due to the limitations of fitting onto 12" vinyl. "Critique Oblique" stops abruptly; "Forest Dance #1", "The Story of the Hare...", and "Forest Dance #2" are missed out completely; it jumps straight into "Foot of Our Stairs", and ends with "Flight from Lucifer". The drum Solo is also an edited version of what Barriemore Barlow performed on the night, with over three minutes missing.
There seems to be some confusion of the available recordings of the LA Forum concerts from the 18, 20, 21 & 22 July 1973. Recordings hailing from these four nights usually state the 20th as the date. This is the case with the CD in this review, and Pilgrims Progress, and I have no reason to doubt that. However the double CD Supercharged in LA is a compilation of two original vinyl bootlegs from 1973 and 1975; namely Supercharged, on the "Trade Mark of Quality"label, reference TMOQ2814A/B/C/D, and Live At The Los Angeles Forum February 10th, 1975, on the "Wizardo" label reference WRMB 311. Supercharged was recorded on one of these 4 evenings, but not the 20th, as it is definitely not the same recording. The Supercharged version of A Passion Play is the one used on the recent CD A Passion Play Live, which is the best version out there. Whoever worked their magic to create A Passion Play Live, please do the same with the rest of Supercharged.
A Passion Play Forum'73 is very highly recommended; you can't get much better for APP tour recording. Pity that it is not the complete concert.

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.

steelmonkey: Not only am I doing a zoom meeting in nice shirt and boxer shorts...I am ignoring boss and reading Tull news.

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

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.
