This is one of the best end-of-summer/'60s/relationship songs out there, and completely free of Andersonian mugging.

Good call Maarts - a seminally robust track from a robustly seminal album

The electronic trickery, particularly towards the end, is a sheer delight

(and of course, Evan's stabbing and stalking Hammond!)

Was Clive Bunker their best tub-thumper...?

Hard to say no- since he was involved in so many of my fave Tull-albums.
I didn't think Barlow missed any tricks picking up the sticks on Thick, he was perhaps a bit more straightforward but he made it fit Tull's music nicely.

I would vote for Mr. Barlow, but just by a whisker.

And Play In Time is a monster track. I love every second of Benefit. But then I love almost every song from Stand Up all the way through Broadsword and the Beast. Speaking of which.....

One of Ian Anderson's best songs in my view.

The Original Masters compilation is well worth having as an overview of the band's work.

indeed. i love it.

way back in the dark ages, when i was a new navy weef, i used to make mix cassettes all the time for the out-to-sea husband/future exhole. i would try to fill up every second of tape i could. i had made this tull mix, and i wanted "life's a long song" to be the closing track. i was soooo sure i could fit it, i had worked it out right.

so it gets to the very end of the song, and this is what happened: "... but the tune ends too soon for us" <click> end of tape.

i decided to leave it as it was for thematic purposes, mwhaha.

However, I suspect that not all posters on this thread are real Tullheads

I think the Illuminati II need to vet them

Always love the lyric to this, very evocative images of the British seaside of Andersons childhood Blackpool

"I'm going up the `pool from down the smoke below
to taste my mum's jam sarnies and see our Aunty Flo..."


...There'll be bucket, spades and bingo, cockles, mussels, rainy days,
seaweed and sand castles, icy waves.
Deck chairs, rubber dinghies, old vests, braces dangling down,
sun-tanned stranded starfish in a daze...


... so good that Roy Harper did a version. Brilliance

absolutely. it is clearly a conspiracy of the highest order, with nontullheads proliferating and procreating in the shrubbery like diseased rats. off with their lil bewhiskered nontullheads!!

i think i will start with reap. he's such a troublemaker. i would like to vet him.

oops, this is a family show. i forget sometimes.

it taught me the word sarnies, in fact.

i made martha a tull mix as part of a secret santa package. the tracks, if anyone is interested:

life's a long song
dun ringill
jack a lynn
christmas song
bouree
cold wind to valhalla
velvet green
cheap day return
mother goose
nursie
skating away on the thin ice of a new day
reasons for waiting
up the pool
jack-in-the-green
salamander
wond'ring aloud
ring out solstice bells
one white duck
fire at midnight
elegy
