I've listed this here becuase it is neither an official record compnay release nor is it of indeterminable origin since it is clearly endorsed in some way or other, a bit like our Dave Pegg interview.
It is described on the back as;
"The limited edition collector's item has been made available exclusively to readers of "A NEW DAY", the Jethro Tull Magazine."
It contains two cassette tapes of an interview to celebrate the band's 25th anniversary.
I have transferred this to a double CD package and run appropriate Tull tracks behind Ian and Martins stories. Originally intended to be radio snippets for the 25 Anniv. Great stories, pretty funny. I was afraid that the tapes were degrading. Darin
Darin Thanks for resurrecting this In case you weren't aware it was released originally as a double CD. I have a copy and will post images of it soon. I meant to have done it sooner but it slipped off the list. Pat
That's a great story, Pat, and you were lucky to see Steeleye on that tour, and to have Ian sitting right in front of you for that! Didn't Martin Carthy rejoin Steeleye for that album? I have been trying to find a CD of it on Amazon, but it's like $350 or something, because it's so rare.
I'd like to hear the John Evans story too.
The John Evan story centres on a gig that David Palmer was doing at the Hammersmith studio's at the time wehn there was talk of Tallis. I'll try and add it tomorrow.
*clears throat* Still waiting to read this... *Beckons with fingers* Bring it on!
Jim, have you ever noticed that the background image to your undeniably awesome belt buckle is from the front cover of Uriah Heep's Demons and Wizards album? Look towards the top left.
Makes it even cooler, I think. You probably already knew this, though
I believe I recognized this back in 1977 before I bought it. "Demons and Wizards" artwork Designed and Drawn By: Roger Dean "M.U." Art Direction by OZ Studios - Designed by Eric Michelson Here is a link to Pacifica Buckles pacificabuckles.com/
Wow! Great pics from that tour book which they ran out of before coming here. I think the marketing strategy gets modified quite a bit. The pic with John Evan is very funny while the other guys look quite distinguished. David Palmer the brick layer is awesome too.
I've seen that button before but never came across it at any conventions. Well Done!
Biggles: Sooo jealous! enjoy.

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.

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
