Not Brian Wilson, then. ;)

Ordered last week. This is where Tull starts to lose it though for me unfortunately.
Of course, it wasn't even supposed to be a JT album...

Agree with both but looking forward to it, all the same. Broardsword and Under Wraps should also be worthwhile for various reasons!

The standard and consistency of these reissues is remarkable.

Yes on both counts (I already have A on pre-order).

(actually, the Stand Up set is missing, and of course now goes for silly money)

I like Broadsword a lot more, actually.

This arrived today, very much enjoying the Live at LA Sports Arena discs - the A material sounds much better live, the opening version of Black Sunday and the version of Working John , Working Joe are awesome.

Agreed - Broadsword is superb and the tour was great fun!

I say it every time when these Tull boxes come out - I wish they would release the live concerts separately

I buy the boxes, play them once and then archive them

I won't be buying this one though
