    Very well comrade.
    Onward I go.

    ^Great googly mooglyl! How I wish there were some professional footage from the mid 70s when Tull were at their peak of frenetic energy. People just don't move around like that any more. And of course even this video doesn't quite capture it.

    I'm finally giving a first listen to the Steve Wilson remaster of War Child 40th anniversary box, and so far I'm not hearing much difference in clarity.

    With the fantastic Passion Play remaster it was obvious. I'll give it time, but I'm a little disappointed.

    [Addendum: But after 40 years I still can't count or keep up with the bluesy guitar solo sections in 13 and half/8 time or whatever the heck they are in Back Door Angels. There's just so much going on there.]

    I didn't notice much difference, either. But I haven't listened to the surround mix.

    Ian to put together a rock opera about the REAL Jethro Tull.
    He will use Tull songs to do it and tour it later this year.

    Hi, I - does the above '77 gig date refer to 10th Feb (UK) or 2nd Oct (US)? I only ask because if it was a gig from 10th Feb the Songs From The Wood album was released the day after!
    '...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 grew up in New York and attended a couple of Tull concerts in the '70s. Both times, best as i recall, they were highly professional, not a note out of place but also with plenty of rock energy, playing all the expected songs. The first was at Madison Square Garden. a highly charged show, and one thing i recall clearly is that the band demanded no one smoke weed during the show. The ushers rigorously enforced the rule, unlike every other concert of the period i attended.

    The second concert i attended was even better, though a bit more restrained, at Radio City Music Hall, which holds about 5,000. I'm pretty sure this was in 1977. They mixed Songs from the Woods material with older favorites, Anderson was in complete command of the proceedings and everyone seemed to treat it as a special occasion. Rolling Stone reviewed the concert and gave what was in those days a rare thumbs up for Tull amongst the critics, headlining the review "Thick as Kitsch."
