    Thanks for this - a revelation for me on two counts: i) that a 70s UK TV channel apart from BBC2 would actually commission a show like this and ii) Martin B playing a Telecaster.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I have the DVD that came with the TOtRnR box reissue, but haven't had time to watch it yet! I'll wait and watch it on DVD - someday.

    How would you guys rate the Too Old to Rock 'n' Roll album? It seems to be quite underrated, but it has some excellent musicianship and a very 'upbeat' sound.

    I rate it very high myself. Some beautiful music there and, as always, creative.
    Great musicianship always.

    I think it's a highly under-rated gem. It repays careful listening, especially on headphones.

    Jethro Tull have always been one of my favourite bands. I have most of what they produced till around 1980 and some later albums. As an album I probably like Aqualung the most but as an experience surely Passion Play and Thick as a Brick are my favourites. I love the lyricism and sing it along from start to finish whenever I play it.

    Best lyric by JT and best description of modern life in my opinion: "I have one foot in the graveyard, the other on the bus".

    I'm sorry I never saw them live but youtube was a revelation. Ian Anderson's acting out on stage is adding to the music (instead of annoying as with most bands).

    He's somewhat 'freaky' sometimes, imo. But still, a great musician.

    You should get them all including the newest Thick as a Brick 2, and Homo Erraticus. Excellent albums!
