Reelin’ In the Years 162: Locomotive Breath

Tull in their pomp. An acknowledgement of their bluesy origins in the intro leading into a complete rock-out and then one of Ian Anderson’s trademark flute solos. The mix of blues and rock also pointed to Prog Rock leanings but Tull always denied they ever purveyed Prog.

Edited to add. This video has the LP track overdubbed onto concert footage.

    Ah, that takes me back!

    Which gives me an excuse to use this to contact you (I don’t seem to have your email). On Tuesday 30 July at 17:30 – 18:30 I’ll be talking about my sf at Aberdour Church Hall, as part of the Aberdour Festival. I would be very happy to see you there!

    Thanks Ken,
    I’ll need to try to get to that.
    I’m sure I’ve still got your email address somewhere (unless it has changed) so I should be able to contact you.
