    I'm classically trained flutist and I'm watching Jethro Tull for the very first time and reacting! I heard about Jethro Tull the first time on my Twitch stream back in 2017. Never really got into checking them out. Now I'm watching them perform live in Tampa Stadium in 1976.

  • Jethro Tull - My God

    9:27

    Jethro Tull was formed in the late 60's and released their debut album This Was in 1968. Led by charismatic frontman Ian Anderson, they have been touring and recording almost constantly ever since, have registered no.1 albums on both sides of the Atlantic, achieved a succession of gold and platinum discs and won a Grammy award. They remain a massive live draw wherever they play around the world.

    In 1970 Jethro Tull played the Isle Of Wight Festival in front of 600,000 people. Earlier that year they had released their third album, Benefit, which had seen the introduction of a full time keyboard player to the band's line up. The set was drawn from across the three albums with popular tracks such as My Sunday Feeling, Dharma For One, Bourée and Nothing Is Easy and also featured My God, a track that would appear on the following year's classic album Aqualung, probably their most famous release.

    Nothing Is Easy is a true concert film, combining the classic performances from the festival with a new interview with Ian Anderson, specially shot for the film, and with backstage footage and original interviews from 1970 with Isle of Wight residents and fans attending the festival.

    Jethro Tull - Living In The Past 1969

    The single reached number three in the UK charts in 1969

    Jethro Tull are a Grammy Award winning British rock band that formed in 1967-1968.[1] Their music is marked by the distinctive vocal style and lead flute work of front man Ian Anderson.

    Initially playing blues rock with an experimental flavour, they have, over the years, incorporated elements of classical, folk and 'ethnic' musics, jazz and art rock.

    Band Memners 1969-1970
    Ian Anderson - lead vocals, flute, acoustic guitar
    Martin Barre - guitar, vocals
    Glenn Cornick - bass, vocals
    Clive Bunker - drums, percussion, vocals
    John Evan - keyboards, piano, vocals

    Lyrics:
    (Instrumental)

    Happy and I'm smiling,
    Walk a mile to drink your water.
    You know I'd love to love you,
    And above you there's no other.
    We'll go walking out
    While others shout of war's disaster.
    Oh, we won't give in,
    Let's go living in the past.

    (Instrumental)

    Once I used to join in
    Every boy and girl was my friend.
    Now there's revolution, but they don't know
    What they're fighting.
    Let us close our eyes;
    Outside their lives go on much faster.
    Oh, we won't give in,
    We'll keep living in the past.

    (Instrumental)

    Oh, we won't give in,
    Let's go living in the past.
    Oh no no we won't give in,
    Let's go living in the past.

    (Instrumental)

  • Jethro Tull - Locomotive Breath

    4:27

    According to Wikipedia:

    Locomotive Breath is a song by the English progressive rock band Jethro Tull from their 1971 album, Aqualung. It is notable for a long bluesy piano introduction (particularly during live performances) and its flute solo by flautist Ian Anderson. The lyrics use the imagery of an impending and unavoidable train wreck as an allegorical portrayal of a man's life falling apart. The song receives frequent airplay on classic rock radio stations. It was covered by Rabbitt on their 1975 album Boys Will Be Boys, by W.A.S.P. on the reissue of their 1989 album The Headless Children (as a bonus track), Styx on their 2005 album Big Bang Theory, and Helloween on their 1999 album Metal Jukebox. A Swedish rock band, formed in 1995 by Janne Stark, takes its name from the song.

    The term locomotive breath ostensibly refers to the steam ejected from a steam locomotive's pistons, which provided a characteristic foggy atmosphere and metallic odor to 19th-century train station platforms.


    Lyrics:

    In the shuffling madness
    Of the locomotive breath
    Runs the all time loser
    Headlong to his death

    He feels the pistons scraping
    Steam breaking on his brow
    Old Charlie stole the handle and
    The train it won't stop going
    No way to slow down

    He sees his children jumping off
    At the stations one by one
    His woman and his best friend
    In bed and having fun

    He's crawling down the corridor
    On his hands and knees
    Old Charlie stole the handle and
    The train it won't stop going
    No way to slow down, yeah

    He hears the silence howling
    Catches angels as they fall
    And the all time winner
    Has got him by the balls

    He picks up Gideons Bible
    Open at page one
    God He stole the handle and
    The train won't stop going
    No way to slow down

  • Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick

    13:30

    Thick As A Brick by Jethro Tull, live in Golders Green Hippodrome, London, England in February 10, 1977.
    The concert was covered live by BBC, and later released on various bootleg DVD versions by fans.

    Jethro Tull, the only internationally successful progressive rock band, in whose music the flute plays a leading role, live on 15.08.1970 at the Beat Club!

    Jethro Tull -- the British rock group with Scottish front man and flute player Ian Anderson. Best known for his tendency to stand on one leg while playing concerts, Anderson is also the man who introduced a classic instrument to rock music: the flute - especially the western concert flute. The song With You There To Help Me was released on the third Jethro Tull album Benefit in the spring of 1970. At that time the group had already moved from their rhythm & blues roots to progressive rock with Celtic music influences. And during the 70s and 80s Jethro Tull even turned from folk rock to a more hard rock orientated music style.

  • Jethro Tull-Bungle In The Jungle

    3:31

    Walking through forests of palm tree apartments ---
    scoff at the monkeys who live in their dark tents
    down by the waterhole --- drunk every Friday ---
    eating their nuts --- saving their raisins for Sunday.
    Lions and tigers who wait in the shadows ---
    they're fast but they're lazy, and sleep in green meadows.

    Let's bungle in the jungle --- well, that's all right by me.
    I'm a tiger when I want love,
    but I'm a snake if we disagree.

    Just say a word and the boys will be right there:
    with claws at your back to send a chill through the night air.
    Is it so frightening to have me at your shoulder?
    Thunder and lightning couldn't be bolder.
    I'll write on your tombstone, ``I thank you for dinner.''
    This game that we animals play is a winner.

    Let's bungle in the jungle --- well, that's all right by me.
    I'm a tiger when I want love,
    but I'm a snake if we disagree.

    The rivers are full of crocodile nasties
    and He who made kittens put snakes in the grass.
    He's a lover of life but a player of pawns ---
    yes, the King on His sunset lies waiting for dawn
    to light up His Jungle
    as play is resumed.
    The monkeys seem willing to strike up the tune.

    3:46

    The incomparable Ian Anderson music machine rolls into town in grand style. Hope you enjoy this fantastically restored 1977 sound and footage. While never having the greatest light show in the business, Ian Anderson makes up for that with his superb humor and theatrics, and of course his performance skills. You have to admire his style, in spite of its dark and prickly nature. It's really funny how he harasses the other musicians as they play solos. And quite original how Ian sings and plays flute at the same time in harmony.... It's not that hard to do if you can do both individually.

  • Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick

    6:44

    A classic written by Ian Anderson.

    Thick As A Brick (Part 1)

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out.
    My words but a whisper your deafness a SHOUT.
    I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
    Your sperm's in the gutter your love's in the sink.
    So you ride yourselves over the fields and
    you make all your animal deals and
    your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

    And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away
    in the tidal destruction the moral melee.
    The elastic retreat rings the close of play
    as the last wave uncovers the newfangled way.
    But your new shoes are worn at the heels
    and your suntan does rapidly peel
    and your wise men don't know how it feels
    to be thick as a brick.

    And the love that I feel is so far away:
    I'm a bad dream that I just had today
    and you shake your head and say it's a shame.

    Spin me back down the years and the days of my youth.
    Draw the lace and black curtains and shut out the whole truth.
    Spin me down the long ages: let them sing the song.
    See there! A son is born and we pronounce him fit to fight.
    There are black-heads on his shoulders, and he pees himself in the night.
    We'll make a man of him, put him to trade
    teach him to play Monopoly and how to sing in the rain.

    The Poet and the Painter casting shadows on the water
    as the sun plays on the infantry returning from the sea.
    The do-er and the thinker: no allowance for the other
    as the failing light illuminates the mercenary's creed.
    The home fire burning: the kettle almost boiling
    but the master of the house is far away.
    The horses stamping, their warm breath clouding
    in the sharp and frosty morning of the day.
    And the poet lifts his pen while the soldier sheaths his sword.
    And the youngest of the family is moving with authority.
    Building castles by the sea, he dares the tardy tide to wash them all aside.

    The cattle quietly grazing at the grass down by the river
    where the swelling mountain water moves onward to the sea:
    the builder of the castles renews the age-old purpose
    and contemplates the milking girl whose offer is his need.
    The young men of the household have all gone into service
    and are not to be expected for a year.
    The innocent young master - thoughts moving ever faster -
    has formed the plan to change the man he seems.
    And the poet sheaths his pen while the soldier lifts his sword.
    And the oldest of the family is moving with authority.
    Coming from across the sea, he challenges the son who puts him to the run.

    What do you do when the old man's gone - do you want to be him?
    And your real self sings the song. Do you want to free him?
    No one to help you get up steam
    and the whirlpool turns you `way off-beam.

    LATER.
    I've come down from the upper class to mend your rotten ways.
    My father was a man-of-power whom everyone obeyed.
    So come on all you criminals! I've got to put you straight
    just like I did with my old man twenty years too late.
    Your bread and water's going cold.
    Your hair is too short and neat.
    I'll judge you all and make damn sure that no-one judges me.

    You curl your toes in fun as you smile at everyone,
    you meet the stares, you're unaware that your doings aren't done.
    And you laugh most ruthlessly as you tell us what not to be.
    But how are we supposed to see where we should run?
    I see you shuffle in the courtroom with
    your rings upon your fingers
    and your downy little sidies
    and your silver-buckle shoes.
    Playing at the hard case,
    you follow the example of the comic-paper idol
    who lets you bend the rules.

    So!
    Come on ye childhood heroes!
    Won't you rise up from the pages of your comic-books
    your super crooks
    and show us all the way.
    Well! Make your will and testament.
    Won't you? Join your local government.
    We'll have Superman for president
    let Robin save the day.

    You put your bet on number one and it comes up every time.
    The other kids have all backed down and they put you first in line.
    And so you finally ask yourself just how big you are
    and take your place in a wiser world of bigger motor cars.
    And you wonder who to call on.
    So! Where the hell was Biggles when you needed him last Saturday?
    And where were all the sportsmen who always pulled you though?
    They're all resting down in Cornwall
    writing up their memoirs for a paper-back edition
    of the Boy Scout Manual.

  • Jethro Tull - Nothing Is Easy

    3:08

    Jethro Tull, the only internationally successful progressive rock band, in whose music the flute plays a leading role, live on 15.08.1970 at the Beat Club!

    Jethro Tull -- the British rock group with Scottish front man and flute player Ian Anderson. Best known for his tendency to stand on one leg while playing concerts, Anderson is also the man who introduced a classic instrument to rock music: the flute - especially the western concert flute. The song With You There To Help Me was released on the third Jethro Tull album Benefit in the spring of 1970. At that time the group had already moved from their rhythm & blues roots to progressive rock with Celtic music influences. And during the 70s and 80s Jethro Tull even turned from folk rock to a more hard rock orientated music style.

    11:32

    I'm a flutist and this is my first time watching and listening to Jethro Tull perform Thick as a Brick live at Madison Square Garden 1978. I'm really getting interested in his style and can't wait to see more! As a flutist, I'm only including the flute parts as on the video, even though I listened to the whole video.

    This was my most requested reaction so I decided to do it right away! I'm kinda shocked what the flute had to go through haha! First I thought it was mic or cable or something but urrrrh..

    Songs From The Wood & band intro by Jethro Tull, from the DVD Live At Madison Square Garden 1978, released in 2009 by EMI.
    That concert was not videotaped in it's entire, due to BBC limited broadcast duration.
    On songs 1-3 and 12-16 you can only listen the band playing while watching a slide show.
    Jethro Tull, weirdly, introduce themselves and say goodbye twice that night, due to the aforementioned situation.

  • Jethro Tull - Thick as a brick

    12:25

    Ein langes Lied, mit jeder Menge Text!! Und mit einem mitreißenden, grandiosen und virtuosen Ian Anderson. Großartig!!

    Der Originaltext ist um Etliches länger als in dieser Performance von Ian Anderson gesungen. Ich bilde hier nur den Text ab, den er hier tatsächlich singt.

    Thick as a brick

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out.
    My words but a whisper. your deafness a shout.
    I may make you feel but I can't make you think.
    Your sperms in the gutter, your loves in the sink.
    So you ride yourselves over the fields and
    you make all your animal deals and
    your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
    And the sand-castle virtues are all swept away in
    the tidal destruction.
    The moral melee.
    The elastic retreat rings the close of play as the last wave uncovers
    the newfangled way.
    But your new shoes are worn at the heels and
    your suntan does rapidly peel and
    your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.

    And the love that I feel is so far away,
    is a bad dream that I just had today and you
    shake your head and say it's a shame.

    See there's a son is born and we pronounce him fit to fight.
    There are black-heads on his shoulders, and he pees himself in the night.
    Well, make a man of him, put him to trade, teach him
    to play monopoly and how to sing in the rain.

    The poet and the painter casting shadows on the water
    as the sun plays on the infantry returning from the sea.
    The do'er and the thinker no allowance for the other
    as the failing light illuminates the mercenarys creed.
    The home fire burning, the kettle almost boiling.
    But the master of the house is far away.
    The horses stamping, their warm breath clouding
    in the sharp and frosty morning of the day.
    And the poet lifts his pen while the soldier sheaths his sword.

    And the youngest of the family is moving with authority.
    Building castles by the sea, he dares the tardy tide to wash them all a side.

    I've come down from the upper class to mend your rotten ways.
    My father was a man of power whom everyone obeyed.

    So come on all you criminals!
    I've got to put you straight just like I did with my old man
    twenty years too late.

    So you ride yourselves over the fields and
    you make all your animal deals and
    your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
