I thought I add some of the pieces of memorabillia that I have collected over the years in the hope of jump-starting a few other contributions from you good folk out there.
This first thread focuses on printed memorabillia.
First off a bit of a rarity, the tour programme from Tull's excursion to the land of the rising sun in 1972! This is the front cover.
I'll add all the following pages over the next day or so. Excuse the hasty snaps, these like all the other stuff I'll be adding from my collection will be tidied up ain time and I'll take some detailed shots and add them if anyone wants them.
This isn't my personal thread, so please don't hold back, feel free to add your own stuff as well.
One of my oldest original posters. I have posted this eleswhere before but I thought I'd share it again for anyone who may not have seen it.
An old work colleague played in one of the supporting bands on this poster and he passed it onto me. He picked it up directly from the printers, the sides had still not been trimmed off and they remain that way.
Sadly it is slowly fading over time and sits in a darkened storeroom along with most of my stuff. i keep promisimng myself i'll get it over to a conservator for some preventative treatment.
The memorabillia really doesn't add up to much, what you have is an honest opinon and love of Tull, that's all you need really; all this sort of stuff is just a means of gathering dust as my Mum used to say.
I have my concert stubs, two are signed, my signed sock (LOL), my signed backstage pass, and originally I had some random nonsense that I saved from my visit backstage. A beer bottle that was given to me(no, I didn't drink it) and like a frickin sugar packet from the coffee...I'm weird...
And you all remember how I take terrible care of my stuff? Like even my favorite CDs...it isn't that I don't love the stuff, and it isn't that I don't appreciate the stuff, I am just a doofus...my best friend found my IA signed backstage pass crumbled up recently in this box of stuff I have and she's like, "Holly, ummm, shouldn't you put this in something, like a frame or book or something so it doesn't get all ruined?" haha...I need a babysitter...I also have a bunch of records in my upstairs that my father gave me. I don't have a record player though so that's really just for kicks or whatever I guess. I did have a record player one that was actually made recently (weird that they still make them!) given to me by my father too. I ruined it though. Yep. I just like threw it when we moved. Or else I could put the record player in my car and drive around while listening to Tull records...my father talked about the days where there were car record players too!! I think all you guys should tell Kenneth he needs to get me a new car stereo stat...before the big vein in my head pops....
Just added: Rock Island glossy promo photos sent from MCA Canada with the Kissing Willie single. I traded my copy of Kissing Willie (with a DJ from the Toronto radio station Q107) for a signed copy from the Hamilton, Ontario Rock Island concert.
Nice to be [virtually] sharing this stuff, and not just letting it sit in boxes in a lock-up gathering dust. It's been good to go down there with camera and record this stuff for you and relive a few memories in the process.
OMG, love the HH picture. Do you have that hanging up? I sure would. As a huge HH fan..
Remember a few yrs ago Dave Pegg was selling his stuff? I inquired about a HH sweater he had and he said he was on vacation and would get back to me (most likely being English he said, "holiday" actually, LOL) but he never got back to me. Grrr. haha
TM: Yes, his guitars in that song are great.

teddy: Seems like everyone trying to figure out " Eat Hermione for lunch" just don't get it. A Popular vegetarian line of food is advertised by a woman named Hermione. You can see the advertisement on line. Thus it is not oral sex with a office girl. Munch.

lclark354: Hello everyone. I recently finished a room addition, and can finally set up surround sound. I've purchased all the Tull sets, except, of course,TAAB. Is there a site where one can purchase & download the 5.1 files? Or, any word on a re-issue?

madjack1959: Hello to everyone from Lexington, Kentucky. Part of what led me here, was mention of Gentle Giant. I've listened to Tull for ages, and then was introduced to GG via Octopus I saw in the record store, and that was my start. I've never seen either "live" :
