I have been listening to this show and love it. Tull for me is one of those bands that have had their hits definitely overplayed on the radio and for that reason, I tend to not pull their CD's out of my stash much.

But, this recording is pretty darn good and I highly recommend getting on this vine if you are a fan:

Not only did I get in on that vine,(and it IS a good one!)But I've seen them 7 times since 1971.
4 times in their heyday from '71 to '77.
Some of the best shows I have ever seen.

I've seen Jethro Tull a couple of times but I can't say that I really like them too much. I certainly don't dislike them but I never got in to the flute thing. I guess there plenty of bands that if you don't like a particular instrument you won't like them. The Dave Matthews Band comes to mind as another example of this. If you don't like the fiddle then you probably aren't going to like DMB.

That's funny about the DMB, I love the fiddle but totally dislike that band for a whole 'nuther reason, mainly the singer/songwriter (if he indeed writes the songs, I don't know.)

Jethro Tull is cool. I saw them live once at Bumbershoot in Seattle, WA in 1998. It was a good show.

Love Tull , Ian Anderson is such a great showman , have seen them 3 times , all in different decades . The last show I saw was just a few months ago , they did an acoustic set first with some really great playing , I actually enjoyed the first set more than the second ( electric ) , the second set was very good as well it just seems that Ian is having a tougher time singing the rockers , but I would go see them again .

Jethro Tull is one of those bands that I don't think about often, but every once in a while, I'll put in one of their CDs in the player on a whim and almost immediately get deeply entrenched into their music for a couple of months, just get immersed; then I won't listen to them for a couple/three years, sometimes longer. I tried to keep up collecting their albums/CDs, but sadly couldn't keep up. I think Rock Island is the most recent one I have...but, there are a bunch of holes in my collection prior to that one.

I've seen them twice...both times "back in the day"...first time on the War Child tour, then a few years later on the tour promoting their live album Bursting Out. Both times they were incredible! They put on a fantastic show.

When I was about 3 or 4 years old, my parents used to put on their Jethro Tull records, and I would dance around declaring "when I grow up, I want to be Ian Anderson."

I'm a fool for Tull. Saw their Thick as a Brick tour, Passion Play tour and have seen them 12 or 13 times in the past 10 years. GREAT BAND !!! And...THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE ROCK ' N ROLL HALL OF SHAME YEARS AGO !!!!!!

( Tull tattoo also...the one-legged flute playing Ian on one leg)

I used to like Tull back in the early '70s, saw them a few times and played Benefit and Aqualung pretty heavily for awhile. I always liked Martin Barre as a guitar player, especially his solo on Aqualung, really fit the song well.

Used to be a big Tull fan back in the 70's. I got every vinyl release from the first album (This Was) up through Heavy Horses, and still have most of them. I guess my favorites would be Living in the Past, Aqualung, Benefit, and This Was...

Saw them live 3-4 times back in the day and were good shows. Ian Anderson was like an acrobat, all over the stage. Even up on the amps. He put on quite a show.

Jethro Tull is great IMO. You either like them or you don't.

I own on Vinyl This Was up until Broadsword and the Beast.

Really like Thick as a Brick, A Passion Play, Minstrel in the Gallery, Songs from the Wood and Heavy Horses.

Seeing them in August at Mohegan Sun. I won tickets from local radio station
