    In 1976. Time to move on Borat.

    One of my favourite bands. I saw them last year here in Edmonton. They still played as well as ever but Ian Anderson just can't sing worth a lick anymore. Still the concert was excellent.

    I still can't believe a guy who prances around on one leg and plays the flute won MTVs first Heavy Metal award. :confused:
    Having said that, still dig a lot of his music.

    I saw them 3 times in the 70s, all in the old Boston Garden. The best show was the Thick as a Brick Tour. It was a 3 hour concert that was just two continuous sets separated by a weird and groovy film. The music and showmanship was incredible.

    Love Tull. Thick as a Brick doesn't have a bad note on it. There is definitely some questionable material in their catalog (A, Under Wraps), but the vast majority is great. They've made some great albums post Crest of a Knave that have been fantastic, and sadly overlooked. Catfish Rising is one of their greatest works...and their last studio album (not counting the Christmas Album), J-Tull.Com is supurb as well.

    Wind-Up on Aqualung, a great commentary on organized religion. Before it's time. My favorite song.

    Funny thing - next album Passion Play does not have a single good note. I totally blame Ian's drug dealer.

    For my taste War Child is the most underrated album. And recorded fairly well to boot (second to Brick).

    Truly revolutionary sound, songwriting, and overall musical approach for the time. One of my favorite bands from that era, no doubt.

    I posted a live version of the opening segment last week or so in another thread. I still remember listening to the record when it came out in my guitar player's garage. Brilliant.

    Cool background info. from the band about performing the piece.

    I've seen em live at least 2 times (maybe 3, who can remember the 70's).

    Disappointed when "songs from the wood" was released.

    Not sure why, but I don't listen anymore. For me, didn't have the staying power of bands like Zep, Stones, ELP.

    I agree. For me, I found that Ian Anderson's goofy persona became bigger than the band. (Plus, he was more interested in raising his salmon in Scotland, I think.) Also, as others have mentioned, the songwriting went into the abyss, or "sailing away".
