    I already have TAAB2, Erraticus, "Best of", and Aqualung on CD. Other than Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, which would you suggest I get next?
    This is great too:

    I'm listening to Too Old to Rock n Roll... on YouTube. I never bothered to listen to it in the past. I've always heard it was a weak album, but it sounds good to me. I love those acoustic numbers like Salamander. That's why I buy Roy Harper albums too!

    BTW, Amazon has a highly inflated price for the War Child 40th pre-order at 45 dollars.
    It's only 25.60 at the Tull site, or 18.99 pounds for you English blokes.

    Thanks. I'm sure it will drop once it's released though, I think.

    Yes, there is.

    A lot of the (IMO) finest bands that originated in the sixties didn't do much worthwhile stuff after 1980. Jethro Tull are a major exception.

    I've never seen the Hippodrome concert video, so I've just added it to my YT watchlist. A chance to see Glascock in action.

    I confess that I am not a Tull fan, but do appreciate his music. It is unique. I actually went to a Tull concert once when the Stormwatch album was released. But I think I liked his earlier stuff more.

    ^ I'm not certain that I ever heard any of Ian Anderson's solo albums. There could have been something, it seems to me, but I didn't consider it particularly memorable, if there was.

    However, I was a big Jethro Tull fan. I had every one of their albums, right up to Passion Play. I saw them perform live in Calgary in about 1974, 1975 or 1976 (I don't recall the tour, but it could have been the Passion Play or Minstrel in the Gallery tour). While I liked Thick as a Brick, I started to like them less as they moved into this phase. Passion Play had me liking them even less. War Child and particularly Minstrel in the Gallery were getting quite commercial, at a time when my tastes were highly developed and decidedly uncommercial (and strongly shifted toward the Darmstadt School). After those albums, they moved into a folk sound, which is the antithesis of what appealed/appeals to me, so I dropped them from my hearem.

    I don't currently have any of their albums on CD. My favourite albums were Stand Up, Benefit and Aqualung (the latter is one I might consider getting again, or even all three).

    Their subsequent albums certainly received less airplay. I would say they peaked with War Child as far as radio is concerned. But I do remember the title track from Songs From The Wood getting played a fair amount around '78 or so.

    I never bothered with their live album, Bursting Out. It's fairly solid, but sounds more like an arena crowd pleasing record with the excerpts and hits. I like their early, more intense performances with Cornick and Bunker.

    I never understood the folk label attached to Songs... and Heavy Horses. It doesn't sound like folk music to my ears. I've never really warmed to Heavy Horses. It's one of their better sounding albums, but almost too clean.

    Count me as a fan.

    There are quite a few bands that I like better, but their best material is amazingly good.

    'Taab' and 'APP' are my favorite. Their earlier blues based stuff does nothing for me. They lost me after 'A'.

    Anderson's 'TaaB' pt 2 is actually pretty good. Better than it has a right to.
