I saw on YouTube a number of Tull bootlegs which have appeared quite recently, and I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the links in case you haven’t seen them. Many of you will have, of course, but equally many may not.
These are all audio only.
'Ploughing the Boots' is a real goldmine. (This and 'Complete Performance' have three separate uploads - you'll see them on the uploaders' own pages - click on ‘show more’ for full track listings).
TM: That's right. Just when you thought all that was left was a flute and a thing...

standup2002: At Martin's next show he should plug a thing into a marshall stack, do an obnoxious solo on it, and then light it on fire and smash it on stage.

TM: Whenever I see that damn thing I'm thinking No.

Kai: I dunno, I bet Martin could fashion together a kickass piece on it--he has the balls for it. He'll be the John Lord of the accordian.

Kai: So long as he remembers to distort it that is

Nonfatman: Kai, welcome home to The Board. We can use your help in trying to get our mojo back!

TM: Warchild box set coming out soon. Hoorah.

Biggles: Hoorah! (can we get the third Hoorah?)

TM: Any thoughts with Ian dropping Homo tracks in favor for Tull tunes on the current tour? My take is this - it's all about promotion.

Dan: Not my favorite I.A. or Tull album but I would like to see it in its entirety live. Besides, what Mr. A considers "Best Of" is considerably different then mine.

Biggles: HomoE isn't playing well live, period! It's only 'ok'.. Also, people in Oakland, CA were yelling from the rafters "FIX THE AUDIO". It wasn't the audio, the band just doesn't get the material and it lacks dynamics.. TAAB2 played much better live.

Nonfatman: In all fairness, then, the tour should be re-billed as The Best of Jethro Tull, featuring Homo Erraticut.

Biggles: The Best Of segment blew away HomoE. My expectation was the opposite. Scott Hammond understood the Tull classics, props to him. I heared a fan say "fuck that weird shit" about HomoE.

Nonfatman: I think the difference between this tour and last year, was that for Brick, the audiences had already gotten their money's worth, with the entire Thick as a Brick played in the first set. So that made the new album go down easier.
Sept 26, 2014 19:56:13 GMT -5
Nonfatman: This year it's the opposite, with the new album being played first and some folks getting restless.
Sept 26, 2014 19:56:42 GMT -5
Nonfatman: I don't know, but for me I would rather hear the solo band perform the new material, because it is their own material, not Tull. I just don't care for Florian's playing on the Tull stuff.

TM: Ian's music is always enjoyable but his last 2 albums simply are not in the same league as classic Tull.
Sept 26, 2014 20:02:51 GMT -5
Kai: The "best of" setlist probably isn't Ian Anderson's favorites, but what he thinks will be the fan's favorites--or at least familiar to the general public.

Nonfatman: Welcome, new member Donstrat, we look forward to chatting with you.
