This is the second volume from David Rees and Martin Webb long term Tull diehards and carriers of the flaming torch via their Jethro Tull magazine A New Day. I have already got the first volume, so this is the companion which was mentioned as " soon to be coming out" when I bought the first volume.
Have had to wait a bit longer for this to appear ( either I am getting useless at tracking these things down or said authors spent longer down the pub than they had anticipated before sticking the pages together with glue ) but hey ho it is now in my hands and I am looking forward to another good rollicking read of the various interviews from all and sundry associated with the band.
On first glance however it doesn't seem to be bang up to date, as it does not seem to over any of the sudden change of direction from Mr. Anderson in dropping the JT monicker, and also dropping Martin Lancelot Barre from the agenda. Apologies if I am mistaken but that is something I am looking forward to understanding. Seems to me a divorce that wasn't really needed, but then again Mr. a does sometimes work in mysterious ways.
However all being said and done, it's a loving book about Tull, so realistically, what's not to like.
One more Noghtcap for the road, boys?
