Great album




Most definitely, a great album.


I didn't hate it, but I no longer have time or room for stuff I'm halfway on. I now have over 100 items for sale at Discogs, and a couple big lots of obscure stuff on Ebay. Some of my latest sacrifces:

...and many more. Many I'd probably change my mind on if I gave them another listen, but I'm going to be strong and resist the temptation.

Wow - the Quicksilver is a classic! And Sunrays ain't bad, either.

I could never fathom the love for that Quicksilver album. Basically long, plodding live versions of Bo Diddley songs, as I recall.

Totally agree. I kept my vinyl version for years because I loved the cover so much, but I never listened to it.
Bugger off.

By the way, I ditched all of my CDs (I don't have any records or cassettes) a few months ago. My ears are shot so I'm not fussy about sound quality and I'm happy enough with Spotify.

I already got rid of all my other Jethro Tull, so I might as well sell my Aqualung, too. The Savoy brown is very late in the game, and not very interesting.

Sorry to hear that, but good that you are happy with Spotify. I have slight noise trauma in my right ear, but as long as I don't crank the stereo too loud, it's fine.

They are good for what they are. I am just moving away from singer-songwriter a bit.
