do you simply reflect changes in the patterns of the sky?

WNPR is streaming Ian Anderson's Jethro Tull Christmas currently (9 am Friday morning EST)

(via netcurmudgeon)

ETA: If you missed that, you can hear it here. Free registration required. (Quite easy, and it gives you access to all sorts of cool public radio stuff.)

Seriously, this is worth listening too. If nothing else, it gives a brief snapshot of Ian's sense of humor, and why Tull In Concert is such a big deal, even after nearly forty years.

ETAATA: The "Rock Island" tour was the first time I saw Tull live. Yanno, "Another Christmas Song" can still choke me up.

Especially this year.

How many wars you fighting out there, this winter morning?


I'm gonna guess we might get a second crack at it on KNPR at 9 your time.
Well, they just said it was available for streaming on coolstreams.com, but *I* can't find it....


I rock.

Requires realplayer and a free registration, but so worth it.
"Another Christmas Song" makes me cry almost every time I play it. Today is the official opener for Christmas music, for me at least, and conveniently enough it's the only music I have that isn't packed for tomorrow's move.

Thanks for the reminder. *trots off to find JT Christmas Album*
I have still managed to never see Tull in concert. Every single time they're in town I either am a) too broke or b) working. Considering how much I love their music, this really bites.
Old bat that I am, the first time I saw Jethro Tull was when the opened for Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden in 1971. I was 14 and I remember very well how exhilharted and sort of frightened I was at the crazy red-haired (and what a head of hair he had then!) bearded wild man who played the flute like nothing I had ever heard before and had a voice to melt your soul. The codpiece was pretty eye-opening to lass of my tender years, too! I have been a fan ever since and I've seen Tull live probably thirty times give or take a few numbers.

Thanks so much for this link!
