My first and last time with you
And we had some fun.
Went walking through the trees, yeah!
And then I kissed you once.
Oh I want to see you soon
But I wonder how.
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now.

Spent a long time looking
For a game to play.
My luck should be so bad now
To turn out this way.
Oh I had to leave today
Just when I thought I'd found you.
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now.

Not having really listened to JT in the day, I feel like it is an endless vein that can be mined for a very long time.

Those are all great, but I like Living in the Past the best.

Stand Up (The Elevated Edition)(2CD/DVD)
Just came out rerelease from 1969.  Great album.  Way more blues then later albums.

Interesting, but frankly Tull can do better.

I must second that!{#Cheers}

 
I agree that it was a great album, but it really cannot be compared to the other Tull albums. Mick Abrahams played on This Was before he left to form Blodwyn Pig. He had a major influence on the blues rock sound of This Was that didn't continue after he left.

Boom! What a HEAVY track!

I need to explore more JT, evidently!


slipping into the 'heavy-hard-rock' area but not to far, sounds good

This music is taking a Tull on me!  Too much JT the last couple of days.  Back in a few...
I didn't think anyone could do it, but Jethro Tull out-Creams Cream in this tune.
I'm 16 again. Eyes a little blood shot LOL

Has it been a long day Bill? {#Wave}

Sweet - no there's a tune I haven't heard in 40 years.

1969 shining again. What a year of great albums.
Trower wasn't in Tull but Tony Iommi was for a day or two! Check out The Rolling Stones Circus DVD
More Jazz Flute!!!
solid ten for one of my all-time favourite groups!
Trower was never in Tull. I think you'll find this was Martin Barre's first outing as guitarist.

Actually it has nothing to do with age , people can get stuck in a rut and like only what was popular from their"generation" but they are limiting themselves but if thats what they want to do thats fine. If ya like only one genre of music like Jazz, Classical ,Blues or hell if ya just like polka music then knock yourself out and have the best damn polka collection around. People are obviously going to like different things, thats what makes us individuals. I grew up with a father that was a hillbilly from Missouri whos "heroes" were Hank Sr and Woody Guthrie and loved the Grand Ol' Opry but he did try to get behind Jazz so we had Bird, Dizzie, Miles and Bruebeck in the record shelves while my mom only listened to classical and hated country so I grew up listening to both. I also had a big 8 band shortwave radio in my room so heard "world music" at early age. I sometimes think a grading system for music with a forum is bad because it causes people to defend and offend. I really don't want to do either but find myself doing both. You think Tull is crappy I don't so why argue. I look at peoples playlist like yours and see stuff at top that I love then see stuff at the bottom that I just don't understand especially when it was a number 1 hit or a platinum record. I totally understand how people want music they can call their own, for the period that they grew up in but I wasn't around for Bach, Mozart ,Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, Charlie Patton,Reinhardt but luckily we have their recordings and I have allways tried to listen to each new or old group that I am exposed to and sure I don't care for some new music but love others and look forward to what comes out tomorrow. My niece thinks I should like the Jonas Bros but call me narrow minded after listening to several songs doesn't look like I'll be buying any of their stuff anytime soon but who knows what their next album brings. Anyway this world needs more tolerance not only with music but with people that are different so please don't take this as a attack or that I am being condescending I'm not. Damn thats alot of words just because you don't think a band doesn't have any talent and I do lol damn forum and grading system

 
I miss Holborne.  Not enough honest people speaking up here anymore.  Sigh. I think stkman is correct.  Still, at some point these old songs become sacred cows and their defenders do become really nasty and condescending.  I can understand Jazz enthusiasts defending Jazz with all their hearts.  That's wonderful.  However, I draw the line when it is pushed on me.  When someone claims there is something wrong with my intellect, or learning, or open-mindedness (I could go on forever..) I have to protest.  This is why I protest and rail against Jazz and all of those old fart genres.   Also, Jazz has become politicized like Classical.  Not only do I have it crammed down my throat, but I have to subsidize it with tax dollars.  Bullshit.  Not bloody likely matey, not on my watch. 'Kinell.  A few other points on criticism...there is an astounding degree of ignorance of the nature of criticism displayed on this board.   Many great thinkers have written off entire forms of art and artists throughout the ages.  Read Tolstoy on Opera and Shakespeare for example.  
Ooooh, that's really good.  Back in the day, this would be called "Heavy" and yea, it do rock.
Gotta love the early Robin Trower. {#Tongue}
Classic Tull {#Clap}
One of the few Jethro Tull songs that really rocks. 8.
Nice!
I can't but think of Ron Burgundy when I hear the flute. Funny.

I suppose that's one interpretation.  The Wailers, The MC5, The Stooges, or The Kingsmen (among many others) might disagree.  We all hear something different though.

this is wuckin great, Martin Barre is so solid :)
Tull invented Grunge a few decades early with this album — this track and especially "Back to the Family". I didn't used to like this opening track much but its primitive lo-fi energy grew on me over the years till it's now one of my favorites by the band. Supposedly they got the audio effects by attaching a mic to a long cable from the ceiling and sending it flying back and forth over the players. 
I haven't heard this for a long time. for some reason it sounded good after Happy Mondays.

I am immediately sent back to my dorm room at Kent State every time I hear this song.
Once upon a time, a long time ago, I was involved in putting together a gig at Woolwich Poly near London at the halls of residence combining a few 'mobile disco's' (as they were then called) together for a whopping gig. 

Someone knew the Tull were in town and we were able to borrow their PA along with all our rigs and made a huge wall of speakers driven with seemingly countless slave amps.

We blew a few fuzes that night in more ways I can remember.

Now that's why I listen to RP.
Straight from the Happy Mondays to Jethro Tull.

No.  Actually they are usually this bad or worse.  Ian makes abetter salmon farmer than a rock star IMHO.
I usually like Tull, but this song doesn't do a lot for me.  Is the vocalist Ian Anderson with a frog in his throat, or someone else?

I was about to ask "and where's the flute?" but then it fired up.  OK, that just raised its score one point.  Solid 7

This gets my vote for the most thoughtful post ever in this pages. Full post below.

Bobby Crumb once said about cartooning, "It's just lines on paper, folks!" And someone once said about music, "It's just notes on a staff..." To which I would add—it's just rock'n'roll. Roll with it.

Actually, some polka music is quite decent — check out Brave Combo, for example. They even make The Doors sound good.

As for not understanding how people can rate something as a 1 or 2 when it was a number one hit record — well, the Jonas Brothers have had lots of hit records. Nuff said.

"Quality" and "Jethro Tull" constitute such a contradiction in terms that the two barely belong in the same paragraph together, much less as equivalents.

To begin with, I don't like this tune.  I will admit, however, to being a Tull fan and to having seen them live several times in their mid 70s heyday.

These guys may not be your cup of tea, but they were monster musicians, and at his best (side 1 of Thick as a Brick, for instance) Ian Anderson was a pretty darned good composer.

Quit using that f*cking stupid image, willya? Enough already! Sure, this number sucks the big one, but it's bad enough having ears assaulted by aged cacophony without getting eye-ache from you as well.


Tulls flute may lull some, but his melodic dissonance has always been a boar's hair brush to me.{#Eh}

Anyone who is too young to have listened to Tull when it was new simply is incapable of understanding quality (however dated it might be).

Me too, brother. If I was at a dull party I could always wander over to the album rack and look through the collection for cool covers. That 12x12 space was a perfect canvas and in the case of a gatefold album, there was the inside as well. Plus, if the band was in the money, they could experiment with things like the pop-up inside for this album.

I have a limited edition CD from about 1996 (now out of print) that recreates the original cardboard packaging (with pop up) at CD size. Kind of cool.

This was good background music for shopping for a new skirt, shoes, coat, or dress.  Actually LISTENING to this on RP is like listening to cloth rip: attention grabbing and not fun.

14/9 would suggest that there could be fourteen ninth-notes in each measure. the trouble with that is musical notation does not have a 'ninth-note'. this has nothing to do with octaves, just that musical notation is built on splitting beats in half: whole, half, quarter, eighth, sixteenth, etc. no divisions by three in that schema. strange signatures are still expressed with, say, eighth notes in the case of 7/8. keller1 wrote:
Amazing ... Google "nontave" and you get precisely four hits. A "nontave" is posited as an alternative to an "octave", which, as another post has pointed out, relates to pitch. I'm sticking with my view that there's no such thing as 14:9 time.
