    My wife and I will be there! Very much looking forward to this. The DVD from the "Olympia" tour I recently got has only whetted my appetite further.

    Brilliant band. Conceptually playful/interesting/ahead of their time too.

    ^Pretty hard to argue with that! 'Jealous Guy' was done by them as well, of course.

    Yes, and on his tour as a member of Tull. I have a recording of one of those shows at which Anderson introduces, "...and on keyboards and see-through violin, Eddie Jobson, or as we like to call him, Eddie-baby!"

    Cool. I have a '76 Tull boot where Ian introduces "our new bass player, Mr John Glascock...or as he's become known to about 30 young ladies in the past 20 days, old BrittleDick...you see it just keeps coming off in his hands"...gotta love Ian's audience banter

    My favorite is on 20 Years Of Jethro Tull, where he says "Yes, we do take requests, what would you like to hear?", the entire audience calls out "THICK AS A BRICK!", and Ian sighs and says "Just as well, it's the other one we know", and launches into a truncated arrangement.

    Ya, on that same '76 boot while he's introducing the truncated TaaB he begins the acoustic intro and the crowd goes nuts. He stops and says, "Oh yes, how could you fail to recognize that? It is of course the very famous Led Zeppelin song 'Whole Lotta Brick'" Then he does that Whole Lotta Love riff and morphs it into the TaaB intro.

    The funniest Ian speech on that boot is when he introduces Barriemore Barlow. Barrie stands up to the audience cheers and Ian comments (paraphrased) "You may notice Barriemore Barlow is wearing a fantastic Scottish kilt. He was wearing it the other day at band practice and I inquired as to what type of undergarments he would be wearing to keep his private and quite naughty bits from your gaze. He told me to lift it up and have a look. So I did, and let me tell you...it was gruesome. And as I looked at it, it grew some more"

    I saw them back in the 70's, but couldn't tell you who was in the band.

    Been listening lots of Roxy Music lately. What a wonderful and unique band they were at their best!

    I would rate their albums like this:

    1. Stranded (1973) ****½
    2. Four Your Pleasure (1973) ****½
    3. Country Life (1974) ****½
    4. s/t (1972) ***½
    5. Siren (1975) ***½
    6. Avalon (1982) ***
    7. Flesh + Blood (1980) **½
    8. Manifesto (1979) **½

    I love the first two albums - and after all these years they still sound fresh and very hard to describe or categorize. I get a strong VDGG vibe at places, possibly because of the sax-oboe/keys interplay or Ferry's frantic performance (another predecessor is Family's Chapman in my opinion). But they were definitely eclectic as hell, and not averse to trying anything musically - the journey from song to song in those first two albums is full of chasms and surprises.

    They were quite a solid band during the 70's, and somehow escaped the horrible label of progressive rock which could/would have ruined their career. But for me Roxy Music and For Your Pleasure definitely fall into whatever I understand as progressive rock.

    I must be using the wrong search term, because it ain't coming up at any price.

    Probably my favorite Roxy release.
    3 of the 8 tracks don't feature Wetton, though.

    They should put out one of the full Newcastle shows- with the Wetton/Jobson band- which made up most of Viva. (One of them is around online in perfect quality.) I always thought Eskimos And Geordies was an obvious title!

    I love Viva, one of those live albums which should have been a double! The longer songs get slower, more dramatic arrangements than on the studio albums.
