You lucky duck.  I wish that I could have been there too!

Good luck in finding a band from the last 30 years...that would even try songs like this.

Back in the1970s...all kinds of bands were trying.
I've been listening to Tull since 1971 when I was 11. 
And yet now, thanks to Jack Black and Tenacious D, I hear this and think 
"This is Bach, and it rocks,
it's a rock block of Bach".
My world has been warped beyond control.
thanks for playing multiple songs from this album

this is a very good album
Of course this is an extraordinary performance.  On the tip top of the list?  Maybe.
Open up the LP and the cutouts stand up...and then the 54 year old stems and seeds roll out from the crease.

Ques qe se?
If this is the only Jethro Tull song you ever listen to, put it on repeat !and turn it up loud!
ah from the days of actual album "art". This original release had a pop up done in the same would cut style when you opened up the album like a child's book.

Bach rocks!
Now that's heavy metal!
Why aren't they in the RnR Hall of Fame? 

Their first 4 albums (like this one) were ground breaking as well as catchy pop rock tunes. 

A travesty!
1969 audio quality supreme

These guys live in the late 60's and early 70's were unbelievably good, a force or nature. I saw them at Fillmore East a time or two (memory's fading unfortunately) and larger venues later, always great!



Saw them in 1975 They played ALL of Thick as Brick. Simply amazing.
To the best of my knowledge, the only flute duet played from the Earth to the ISS. Yes, there's video. Cheers!

Listen to each instrument. One by one. Hint: you will have to listen a couple times.
It's a shame music like this isn't being made nowadays (or if it is, it's not heard by many people because today the mainstream music is valued only by the monetary gain it can generate).

On one hand, I was born too late because I'd have loved to go through my formative years listening to this, but then again my father made sure to buy CD's (I'm a millennial) of evergreens, Eric Clapton, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Harry Belafonte etc. which I all listened to on repeat, so it was a pretty good childhood/teenage years, after all.

And now I have an opportunity to bring the music of Jethro Tull (and a LOT of otehr different bands and artists of that era, thanks to Radio Paradise) to my dad and we can appreciate it together, which is neat.

So thanks Bill and Becca, you guys are doing God's work!
Should follow up with some Moe Koffman!
One of Rocks best albums

Loooooooooooool i just thought the same ^^
I had the pleasure of seeing Jethro Tull live in Manchester (UK) in '87 or '88. It began with the band (minus Ian) coming on stage and playing a bit of instrumental for a few minutes. Then all the lights went out except for a single spotlight focussed on the back of the auditorium, behind the audience. And there was Ian, who then proceeded to dance on the backs of the seats all the way down to the front, playing Bouree on his flute the whole time without missing a beat.  Magical performance.
As always...catchy to the max!
Classical Officianados critique the 'breathy" style here and miss the point; Ian intended for it to sound rough! How else to introduce the flute to ROCK and vice versa

Is that you, Kcin Regnad?  I haven't heard from you for ages.  How's the sleazy private eye business?
I always love the bass guitar work on this track, reminds me of my own style back when I played bass a few decades ago. Great tune - 10

Are your speaker-sides switched, or are mine?  Flute and drums are on the right (at least toward the end of the song, when I read your comment) 
El Huerfanito > Bouree.  Brilliant.  Thank you once again, RP!

I do the bulk of my listening with near field monitors in my studio as well.  At least for the past 10 or so years.  I sit about two feet away from them.  Hear things that I only hear for the first time on them anymore.  Of course once something is heard you do not unhear it.  Has enhanced my listening experience on everything else.

For deep listening, I'll turn the monitor off and the room lights down and sit in that sweet spot.  Makes everything better.  Better than headphones, imho.

And this song has been a 10 for me since it was brand new by Tull.

Cheers !

You nailed it.  great comment.
This may be a bit presumptive but I daresay most of us (here?) go thru life with one or more pieces of music playing in the back-grounds of their mind.  Not a constant, mind you, but music that is always there.  It shadows you as you walk and live.  

This is one of the pieces that follow me around thru the corridors of time.  A musical back-drop to my average everyday existence.  I suppose there are worse things?

The rules clearly state that to be inducted, flautists in nominated bands must stand on both feet while playing.

It is crazy, but the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame is a private enterprise essentially run by Jann Wenner, Dave Marsh, and Susan Evans - none of whom are musicians.  The inductees are seldom more than their personal tastes and they run it as an enterprise; they have no public mandate.
 
and Steve Miller has some critical things to say about it...https://soundcloud.com/howards...
They don't make 'em like this anymore.
unfortunately  now i have to turn off radio  paradiseand play my collectionof Tull!!!!!
at impossibly loud volume!!!!
One of the most entertaining song ever!

Tull was a force of nature live in the late 60's early 70's. Really remarkable.

Why anyone cares about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - a hobby of Jann Wenner where the clandestine nomination process is controlled entirely by non-musicians - baffles me.

I was introduced to Tull when Aqualung came out in 1971 - I was 11. I've seen Tull 14 times, starting with the Stormwatch tour in 79, and last in 2010... when I swore that was the last time as Anderson's voice was completely shot.  Very sad. That said, I'd absolutely go see him do his instrumental work (Divinities is a sublime album) and I wish I'd seen the project he did a few years back with different vocalists taking on the "character roles" for various songs from across the years.

Except when it swaps around. Flute starts on right, goes to left, goes back to right. I think 'classical flute' is on the right and 'jazzy flute' is on the left.

At some times you get two different flutes - one on the right and one on the left (obviously not in live performances though).
Thanks for playing this.  Used to hear it very occasionally on the radio in the 90s, and then not at all.   All anyone would ever play on the radio after that is Locomotive Breath.  So much more good music from them exists, and this one is my favorite.
I have never imagined myself sitting in a Holiday in Suites listennig. I am from Ukraine. You, guys, make me not comfortably numb!!!! Thank you!!!!
"Stand Up" and "Benefit" are essential Tull albums.
I think this is the worst song I have ever heard in my whole entire life.

Hey...this is a very good album.

Please play "Used to Know". 
One of the very best concerts I ever saw, coming  right after "Thick as a Brick" album was released. Ian Anderson was like rubber man on the stage...

Yep...part of the never ending sound-track of (my) life.  Though in all honesty I probably maul it a bit when walking along whistling it.  But that's the beauty of that internal soundtrack isn't it?  It all sounds, between yer ears, like it's Carnegie Hall!  Heh!

This is the one JT tune I've found myself, time and time again over the years, whistling in unprompted fashion as I go about my day.  I've done this for so long I think it's become part of my DNA code sequence.  I guess there could be worse back-ground musical tracks in a life, eh? Heh!
