i think they rock... especially the flute solo's... it takes some doing to really make a flute rock and sound good like that...

also i personally think that the guitarist is one of the best around... my personal favorite...i jsut thought to post this as i'm lsitening to a live recording i got off of napster where he goes off for like 6 minutes before aqualung begins...

i also think aqualung is one of the greastest songs too...

what do you guys think??

Gary

P.S. -- dont post if your just gonna trash them, but if you really dont like them, and would like to give the people that do like them your view and more importantly why you dont like them, i think thats cool....

Jethro Tull is my favorite classic rock band. I consider A Passion Play their best song/album. They and the Beatles are practically the only so called classic rock bands I listen to anymore, after moving away from the genre to electronica and jazz. Both bands contain qualities in their music that make it interesting outside the confines of the rock & roll template.

I've always dug Tull. I still ocassionally pull a cover of them out during my shows. It's usually "Skating Away" or "Too Old To Rock & Roll". We don't have a flute so, the flute solo's become harmonica solos. Our player usually use a A-key harp (i think). I actually sounds really good.

i also like jethro tull although im not so familiar with all there stuff.i just got aqualung the reissue with an interesting interview with ian anderson on it.the recomendations posted here will point me in the right direction for future purchases.but i have to say that it is very interesting how it is almost impossible to follow in their footsteps,i mean guitar bands arent critisized for using guitars simply because hendrix had one or zeppelin used one,but if a rock band uses a flute they will inevitably draw comparisons with tull.i suppose its the same if you try to use a violin bow on your guitar,people will say youre ripping off jimmy page....oh well..

I'm also a fan of the old recordings (Aqualung, Thick As a Brick), I must confess I don't know recent work. Recently Jethro Tull came back in the scene, I've watched them recently twice in a week, live, in 2 portuguese TV stations.

I used to be into Tull big-time when I was young but I still listen to and appreciate their music to this day.
One thing I'll say is Martin Barre's solo on Aqualung is a great definition of a well composed, "for the song" lead.

Hey, Tull was one of my favorites back in the seventies. I owned War Child and also their greatest hits (on 8-track of course). My friend would call me Ian and I would call him Jethro. It was kind of stupid, but that's how we felt about the band.

I love Tull, as far as i know Ian Anderson has played a fair amount of guitar on the albums over the years, mainly accoustic stuff on one of his collection of vintage martins. He says that he tends to hybrid pick with a plectrum and his middle finger rather than playing proper fingerstyle, made me feel a bit less like a cheat for doing the same when i found that out......
