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).
Bill Baurle: Well that was different. I don't know if I like it better than the original, but yes, his voice was prime in 1973-77.

Bill Baurle: What I still can't believe was that Paradise Steakhouse was left off of WarChild. That has to be Ian at his very best vocally, except maybe for parts of A Passion Play and Chateau D'isaster.

wakefan: Steven Wilson is the King of Remasters !!!

StanDup: RIP BB King.

StanDup: Martin weighed in on Facebook: Sad news of the passing of BB King. He could say more with one note than other guitarists, with a hundred. An inspiration to all musicians.

TM: So no interest in the new vocal thread....that used to get people talking.

TM: Remember when you thought you were the biggest Tull fan ever?
Jun 6, 2015 21:31:40 GMT -5
StanDup: Well, if you eliminate my brothers, I was definitely the biggest Tull fan in my neighborhood. We turned all of our friends on to Tull (and other bands). The only band that my friends turned me on to was Lynyrd Skynyrd.

TM: I always like Skynyrd. They were my favorite of the southern rock bands.

Michael Crowe: And now I read where the Alabama Shakes are the number one Southern Rock act. There's something I'm missing these days I guess. I never really noticed a generation gap until just the last five years or so. I just don't get it anymore.

Michael Crowe: We need a future tense word. We have past: I "was" there. Present: I "am" there, or he "is" there. But to express future tense we need two words, ex: I "will be" there, etc. Just an observation. Any ideas or suggestions appreciated.

Michael Crowe: Thanks, your suggestion will be reviewed by the Webster board of erectors. However, your entry is still considered present tense in these woods (Alabama, if you recall), and bad grammer otherwise. Perhaps a new word - like, I "homoh" there.

StanDup: Seen the A. Shakes on SNL.Not bad, but it didn't sound like southern rock. Many southern rock bands don't like that moniker. Ronnie used to march the stage with a confederate flag so, sorry remaining member but yer southern rock. Sweet Homo Alabama.

Biggles: A few years ago I read a review comparing Kings Of Leon to the Allman Brothers. What a stretch. The only thing they have in common is the south. A lot of great music coming out of the the south right now, but it aint southern rock. It's Americana.

krusher: If you want to hear the best southern rock band out right now check out Blackberry Smoke. Without a doubt the best of old school southern boogie combined with great guitar hooks and meaningful lyrics I have heard in 30 years.
Jun 23, 2015 1:54:00 GMT -5
Biggles: Yes krusher, Blackberry Smoke... I've watched their VH1 vid. A very authentic southern rock band. Yes TM, digging the 'two camps' banner.

Morthoron: R.I.P. Chris Squire of Yes. Damn great bassist!

Michael Crowe: What is Americana Biggs? The last "Americana" show I saw on tv (from Nashville) featured Richard Thompson. Leon Wilkerson of Skynyrd called their music progressive. I think labels are dead.
