You're welcome, Preston. I come from southeast of Spain as i've ever told in some others posts.
I hadn't ever listened before Herba d'hameli, they come from Barcelona, north of Spain, as i've read at their website, they sound pretty good, more folk than rock, but i like very much too, thx for showing this band.
There were a good bunch of progressive rock bands in Spain during the seventies and eighties, but the most representive imitating the Tull style was Ñu, and if you don't know them, then look at these guys right now and let your own opinion I watched them live at the eighties and they were awesome. Try!

Janu I really like Nu. I have their Cuentos De Ayer Y De Hoy release. There were some great flute led bands from Spain Lisker Gotic Kotebel also usually feature flute strongly.
Anyway from Riga ,Sejane + Grasis with wonderful live performances of Dance In The Hills and By the sea ( I love the flute parts at 1.34 and at 2.34 ) . Its hard to define their music but currently one of my favourite flute led bands.
Really enjoyed Labanda ,never heard of them. Thanks To keep up a Spanish theme within this thread Here is Mago de Oz and their Kelpie cover
Oh yeah, Preston, Mago de Oz, that's for sure I like too, I'd attend one gig of them, was terrific, , as they are a band much more younger than Ñu or Labanda, of 90's years, quite different eras, their style could name it folk metal. The video of them related by you is one of their best tunes for me, some parts looks like Tull sound. Again with Labanda we couldn't forget their best well-known tune : FIESTA CAMPESTRE, pure folk to dance around a bonfire. Shame the tune isn't complete, but you can figure what I mean.
Thanks Preston to keep up this issue of folk rock bands of my country, i'm delighted for
That's really a great cover. It's cool enough that the difference in language did not bother me at all, as sometimes it does with these types of things.
Jeff, I think that when the music is good, is good. English isn't my native language and i'm listening Tull music since I was a child, most of the stories Ian sings in his songs I don't understand them at all, and this doesn't bother me cause Tull is my ever favourite band, also it's great you like Mago de Oz.
Preston, Kotebel sounds great, such a wonderful flute playing, nonetheless they don't come from Spain,as i've read at their website they come from Hispanoamérica, or SouthAmerica, I guess from Mexico, and I hadn't listened them before, thanks for the recommendation, Preston.
And now a great surprise for you all mates of thi great Tull site, Luétiga, a folk band, not rock , they come from the native land of my wife, Cantabria, in the north of Spain, wherever you walk you'll find green landscapes, high mountains, wide rivers, all is good there as the music of this band, hope you like.
Jeff, they sing in their regional slang, even i don`t understand some they're telling , but doesn't bother me
secondly no flute in this I am afraid but an interesting cover of Witches Promise by All about Eve
Thanks for posting this, it's been far too long since I heard it. I have it on 10" vinyl, but havenn't played it for years, thanks for the link, it made me check out whether it was on i-tunes to download but seems it's passed them by.
Another example of Lisker who released just one CD. I believe that they were from the Basque region in Spain
Wow Preston, They sound pretty good, I didn't know them, a great surprise, yes, they come from Basque Country, that's how they wanted to be named, I enjoyed a lot, thanks for posting, mate
Now another progressive folk rock band from Basque Country, Itoiz, they started playing in 1974 and come from Eibar, pretty good sound of flute, too. They sing in basque slang, nothing to do with spanish language.
Unforgiveable on my part that i was forgettin' my favorite folk band in the 90's year, they come from Cantabria, too. The woman is English and married the singer, Marcos, and she settled down in the land of my wife. Enjoy dudes, Atlántica
Preston, excellent the germans Andromeda, the flute stunning, real and good progressive theme you've showed all, thanks bro, and so they were the Tull themes covers you added yesterday of Dharma and Witches Promise, great renditions.
Relating to El bicho, sorry but i'm not very keen on flamenco, strange thing being myself from the country it comes from, hehe , though if we're talking about flamenco rock, this is quite different, try with the best flamenco rock band of the 70's we had in Spain, Triana, with his best and most well known tune, Abre la Puerta, niña or Open the door, girl. I'm sure all you'll like, buddies, pure progressive music from here.
Preston, Skorpis, another brilliant and unknown band for me, thanks for your unstoppable work to show us all these good bands, and, of course to have created this extraordinary thread.
Surprisingly i didn't know this progressive and folk rock band from the Islands, of course ;D , they formed in 1969 and just brought out four albums and a few bunch of singles. What's your musical opinion? Why didn't they go longer and get much more success? Strange things happened, or unfair in life, they have shocked me very much.
TM: Oh man, what an incredible show! I have picks and videos to post.

marco58: Just saw Martin and his hot band in Plymouth, MA last Friday night. My second live Tull experience, after Ian in November at Foxwoods in CT. Completely blown away, the man is legendary, can't wait for his 2016 dates!

TM: Know what you mean Marco - welcome to the board. Everyone in NY was blown away by him as well. It was best show I've seen in many years.

Biggles: I just read the Bill Kopp Asheville, NC review a few days ago and could tell you guys were in for something special. I love that marco58 referred to it as "My second live Tull experience" welcome to the board marco58!

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" :

yellowcab643: I made my way to Hollywood and thought it was very refreshing. The Kaiser Permanente Optometrist there cured my High Blood Pressure. Do I like an unsung westerner - I drove an England truck and had a Texas CDL Styx & Van Halen might have music about me

willydontmind: I bought a 1967 Eko Ranger 12 and it had an autograph on the back. After looking around at who used this kind of guitar and comparing signatures to everyone that I could think of, I came up with John Evans. What do you guys think? Is this his signature
