||is all vanity|
some of the prettiest music i've heard. "they're all resting down at cornwall" easy to do, right before lightning strikes and my sand castle crumbles like those mountains of twisted jutted steel of manhattan, mocking mirrored glass, gasping red hot ash driven down to my impatient tomb. jesus saves? well, he'd better

||The Best of Tull!|
In 1972 I saw Tull perform this album live. The concert surpassed the album & that's saying A LOT! What a show! The live guitar solo which isn't on the studio album is something to experience as were the live theatrics. Evenso, the studio album was the core root of the live performance. Thick As A Brick followed Tull's earlier albums in an upward progression of quality music & thought provoking lyrics. More than just good music, the lyrical content has more than 'just something' to say. Even for those who can't relate to the depth of the lyrics, the complelling sound of Thick As A Brick will carry them along for a unique, stimulating musical ride. A MUST for any Jethro Tull collection is Thick As A Brick! Find a way to record & play the two parts continuosly. That's how it was performed live. When Ian Aderson & the band finished the performing entire song live, a thunderous standing ovation exploded & seemed to last forever. The he quietly said, 'And now for our next number' & the crowd roared for another extended period of time. The band had just played for 40+ minutes straight for their FIRST number! That's how this album should be heard.

Took me way back, but a joy to revisit a time when albums had themes, and this one was one song long!!!

||Ian and friends show brilliance!!!|
I've listened to J Tull since 1970. I've re-discovered ALL of Ian's creations. At each listening, I search for idioms which I can play on keyboard. With MOST tunes that I listen to, I find that I can "figure them out" after a few minutes. As a testament to Tull's complexity and musical aplomb, it has taken me 30 years, little bits at a time, to learn 40% of this epic tale. I yearn to find other players interested in performing this fansastic song. I am continually astounded by Ian's brilliance as a writer of prose, music and as a performer. I have, somewhat boldly, prodicted that someday ?perhaps by 2050? Ian's music will be studied in Engilsh classes, as well as music theory. Well... that's the short version. Listen and enjoy!!!
