I've never really listened to Jethro Tull until just a few minutes ago, and I'm pretty impressed. I would recommend his stuff for demoing systems.

I'll post my list later. :fyi:

I've always liked Tull's earlier stuff (Stand Up, Aqualung, Thick as a Brick)...never really got into their '80s albums when they got all theatrical and stuff.

Steve Hoffman's remaster of Aqualung is worth a listen

I'll have to check it out.


I purchased the Donald Fagen Nightfly Trilogy box set last night. So I am rather excited about that.

It is an addiction for me.

So I have to watch or I'll end up spending too much.
