was released 35 years ago today in the US.
That tour was the last of the 4 Tull shows that I saw in the 70's. The other ones were Thick Brick, War Child, & Too Old To Rock & Roll. They were always amazing.
Definitely in my top 10 favorite albums.
I think i've seen every youtube tull video there is. My faves is the '78 madison square garden version of TAAB and the '70 (i think) version of my god. Amazing. Tull easily is in my all time top 10, maybe 5.
Nice! Some of the more limited footage of John Glascock on the bass.
"And now to lay to rest any ugly rumours that John Glascock is a kinky b*st*rd who likes being thrashed severely on the bum....we'll do so only slightly...in the next song."
I love his witty banter!
I've seen JT twice....1st time, Halloween night 1975, I.U. Assembly Hall.
The crowd (and the band) were outrageously dressed. It was the 'War Child' tour I think. Gawd, the band was ON.
Last time was 4 years ago, in a small college auditorium in Michigan.
Considerably older, with voice changed a bit....but the band was still ON.
Enjoyed both shows.
Lifelong Tullie here...
Had it on 8-track when I was 9.
Saw JT at SPAC in like '87 or '88 (Crest of the Knave tour). One of the few bands I would endure a concert crowd to see again.
love that album. will listen to it tonight.
I saw them in the late 70's early 80's, I think it was the Stormwatch tour, somewhere around the Bursting Out period. I wish that Bursting Out version of Songs From The Wood was the full arrangement, I really like the mix on that one better than the studio album.
Live Bursting Out is still in heavy rotation in my CD collection.
