    Ian Anderson narrates video of 1973 Tull photo session/press conference



    This is in between A Passion Play and War Child.



    Finishes with Passion Play concert footage but The Third Hoorah dubbed overtop.

    This was great! Anderson's dry wit is a delight, honestly, and I love this version of the band. So much so, that here's a drawing I did of them:

    Pffft. Barlow had a handlebar mustache then, not a beard.

    Kidding! That's very cool. I'd never be able to draw like that in a million years.

    Thank you everybody! I kind of had to do this as I'm on a serious Tull kick right now where everything they did from 1969-1982 sounds grand as heck (with the -- ahem -- exception of Too Old).

    Watching the video again, Ian really does sell how bored the band members were at this reception. Ian himself only seems half-hearted at the time at selling his "War Child" film idea. And yeah, why put "The Third Hoorah" (a song I also love) in front of Passion Play live footage? I mean, look at Ian, he's playing the soprano sax! Let's hear what he's playing!

    Talented guy. He also pitched five hitless and scoreless innings last night.

    The video was cool, what I love about that iteration of the band was that Jeffrey's ants-in-the-pants bass playing style actually woke up Martin who himself also started bounding across the stage. What I can pass on is the narration where Ian invokes his HE/TAAB spoken word songs persona, he's a brilliant guy and I love to hear him talk but in his regular voice, not that exaggerated fluff he's dealing here.

    I think Hammond is my favorite Tull bassist. He apparently wasn't even serious about it!
