Ahh will anyone click and look?

This is an AMAZING performance by Ian Anderson!

I had this in my 'fav' list for years - then, it was gone - not a take down notice...The user account that posted it to Youtube so many years ago was deleted/went inactive - and when that happens all vid's that account posted disappear...

I SEARCHED for this performance for years...had given up finding it... Then this summer I was on vacation, had a couple drinks, and decided to search again - and HERE it is, bit lower audio/video quality than what I remember... 440 views on Youtube - over 5 1/2 million on the original post!

Green this mods - let those who would look see this AMAZING live performance!

Writing a song while on LSD does not make it great.

The Life Of Brian: Ahh will anyone click and look?


I certainly will. Anything claiming to be an incredible Tull performance will at least get that from me. I am confused though by you not being able to find it for years. The '77 Hippodrome show is readily available from a variety of places online (& yes it is an incredible show - the height of their fame & before Ian's voice started to go - great stuff)

A quick search on YT for "jethro tull hippodrome" turns up the vast majority of the concert (broken up, I didn't see the full concert on there, '78 MSG yes, '77 Hippodrome no). Elsewhere online there is a film of the entire concert (mine has Korean subtitles :-) ) if you want to do a little digging.

Regardless, thanks for getting my weekend started with some great music.

Ian Anderson was, and still is, strenuously anti-drug.

I didn't know Christopher Lloyd was in Jethro Tull before he started acting.
 
2012-08-25 01:26:54 PM  
That's pretty good, but I prefer My God, 1970

I think it depends on what device you're using to find it.  My Blu-Ray player gets YouTube, but for some bizarre reason it can't find songs I *know* still exist, and can find using plain old Windows and Firefox.
 
It sucks.

I can totally see why they beat out Metallica for the first heavy metal Grammy award.

I thought Jethro Tull was just a person in a band.

My favorite Jethro Tull lyrics come from the song Heavy Horses. The music is OK (frankly, it's not their best). But the lyrics are a a thing of beauty. Really, they should be taught in grade school as an example of what English poetry ought to be.

Iron-clad feather-feet pounding the dust
An October's day, towards evening
Sweat embossed veins standing proud to the plough
Salt on a deep chest seasoning

That was great, thanks for the reminder that rock used to be both good and fun at the same time.
I played flute all through school, and in high school i would snag my mom's Tull album and play along to Bungle in the Jungle (or rather, try to). That was so much fun!

If he was a kid today, he'd be stuffed full of ritalin and prozac. Makes me wonder what weird geniuses we're missing out on due to child doping.

I saw Tull a couple of times. I wasn't a real fan, but seeing them from a 3rd row seat was unbelievable. If you didn't see a live performance, you really never got to experience how great this quirky preindustrially clothed band was. The quality of their performance in the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus film was really weak (Pre-Black Sabbath Tony Iommi on guitar seems really weird), the technical quality is good though. I wonder if there are any true 35mm film prints of them stashed away somewhere?

Ignorant child.

Ian Anderson was (in)famous for his stern and unwaverring anti-drug stance. Afterall,he once kicked Tony Iommi out of the band for being a "stoner" (Black Sabbath fans rejoice)

Also,it was Ian's ex-wife who wrote that song. (at least the lyrics)
What DOES make TULL/Aqualung great is the fantastic riff,superb electric to acoustic and then back change,soulfull delivery in a fairly complex song,good hooks and overall spotless musicianship.

Utterly flawless performance. The live sound on that was perfect. You could hear the drums and electric bass clearly. Barre's guitar tone is awesome. etc.....

Ian Anderson was born in the wrong century.
 
2012-08-25 04:23:59 PM  
JT is one of those bands that is even better live ! I think coke would have actually slowed Ian Anderson down. If Ian were born in the past 12 years they would have druged him up and clamed he had some disorder.

Skip to 19:56 for the actual footage.
JT's 1978 MSG concert. One of the greatest concerts I ever experenced.
 
2012-08-25 04:29:32 PM  
I've been a huge fan of Tull since 1972. Ian Anderson is one of the most talented people I have ever seen. I've seen them live a dozen times, every show an absolute treat.

No Lullaby is in my top 3 Tull songs, music and lyrics.

Awesome link LOB!
 
2012-08-25 04:30:53 PM  
Tull wrote a lot of pretentious crap - starting with 'My God' and including 'Thick As A Brick' but I saw the TAAB tour - my second concert and it was damned awesome.


And this: Jethro Tull was an early English farmer that did something important but I don't know what it was.

You shrink those guys down with a little CGI and they wouldn't even need makeup to be the band at Ye Olde Inn in the upcoming Hobbit flick.

Why is a song about a pedophile considered laudatory?

The ghost of James Brown shakes his head funkily at you.

I love me some Tull, but with all that overacting and wide eyes, Anderson looks like Rik from The Young Ones in that performance.

5. Thick as a Brick
6-10. Heavy Horses, Too Old, This Was, Songs from the Wood, Passion Play

Ian Anderson has claimed that "Thick As A Brick" was "pretentious on purpose" as a "parody" of the then booming progressive rock scene. Anderson was angry that critics considered "Aqualung" as a "prog-concept record" and he basically wanted "Thick As A Brick" to be an over the top way too heavy-handed concept record as a "joke"

oh well.

....I wonder what is Anderson's excuse for "A Passion Play"?

My JT albums were the very last vinyl I said goodby to. I had the real deal: TAAB with the newspaper (which I read in it's entirety when I was 14) The Living in the Past with the album, the Stand Up that stood up. They were cool and took my HS years to collect. Sucks they weren't worth anything.
 
2012-08-25 07:02:45 PM  
Man....I love Jethro Tull.

/thanks Dad
 
2012-08-25 08:08:04 PM  
I originally submitted this years ago and it was greenlit then because it's a farking amazing performance.

The headline was about Ian's facial expressions scaring the crap out of you. :P

Thanks for reminding me about this awesome vid.

This band introduced me to the word 'sod'..
 
2012-08-25 09:31:44 PM  
"Thick As A Brick" brings me back to the night that my best friend's brother accidentally shot himself. Following the ambulance 52 miles over the Siskiyous in my '62 Chevy pickup, with six people in the cab, in a blizzard only to have him die at the entrance to the hospital. Driving home and sitting in a darkened house with his stunned and dazed siblings listening to this album over and over. I love me some J.T., but I can't separate the music from the memories.
 
2012-08-25 09:57:43 PM  
I've never seen a live performance of JT (live or taped). That was truly great! (Was anyone NOT on coke in the 70's?)

But I will never forget seeing Ian Anderson on Regis and Kathie Lee and the farking biatch had zero idea who he was and twice called him "Mr. Tull".
