Any Tull fans out there?


Recommended Posts

Best album, IMO, is Songs from the Wood...the epitome of prog.

Why do I think it represents the best of prog? For starters, it's musically sophisticated but not pretentious. Like all good prog, it has a theme. It blends diverse instrumentation and styles. The musicianship is outstanding, clean and free of cheap gimmicks (e.g. no deedly-deedly triplets or kick hits that sound like a Harley idling). No Autotune. It imitates no one, follows no trendy formulas, dares to stand entirely on its own. This, to me, is what defines great prog.

Love me some Tull. Favorite from Standup; Back to the Family. 
I handed off my vinyl collection New Year’s Day. Standup and a half dozen other Tull gems amongst over 100 titles. 
haven’t owned a turntable in 30 years?


held back one LP, my wife’s 9th grade choir performance; don’t know what I’ll do with it...

We used to Dear Jill

I wonder if Abrahams regretted leaving Tull after Tull got famous and very profitible.

I have a B-Big album or two somewhere in my LP collection.

My favorite Tull albums are the earlier ones: This Was, Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung, Thick as a Brick, Passion Play, and War Child.

Then for no particular reason I drifted away. I've enjoyed a lot what I've heard in later offerings, but never purchased another LP. I don't know why, perhaps it was just time for me to move on.
