Jethro Tull – BBC Documentary

Here’s a nice documentary on Jethro Tull (57 minutes), from 1979, which is a very fine year from them – got Bursting Out, right?

Want some more? Okay, a concert from 1978: Madison Square Garden. Some more??? Okay, make your choice here!

    Funny to see that every link is about Jethro Tull except for one that is about “Schumacher F.1” (?)

    Yes, it’s because at one point of time he was to replace Ian Anderson on vocals, but they just couldn’t match their schedules. Oh well.

    Of course, I’ve got Bursting Out! One of my fave live albums!

  5. Jamez says:

    Also Ian Anderson was and is a big fan of Zappa and Beefheart. He namechecks them as an influence in a lot of his interviews.

    You’re most welcome — though let the records show it was Balint who posted this, not me… 🙂

    Well, this changes everything… or not. That’ll teach me to post while sober.

    Just got my tickets to the New Year’s Eve ZPZ show with Les Claypool in S.F., and am duly excited.

    Thank You, Balint! Been a Tull fan for a very long time; still have my vinyl “Bursting Out”, which is one of the few LP – aside from my FZ – that survived the great ‘purge’ of 1998…
    I find a lot of ‘similarities’ in the intelligence of FZ’s & Ian’s music.
