Another Blast From The Past

Caught in a chasm that is split between two different worlds of emotions.

Mellow and pensive:



VS.

Skeptical and argumentative:



Enjoy

It is always interesting to me how bands ‘grow’ over the years; how they struggle to redefine themselves within a very restrictive market share. Bands still with us from the 60s are those who have successfully done that. What we don’t know, at least I don’t, is how much of their popularity comes from personal loyalty and popular approval of their changes over time.

Tull's one of those guys who always sounds the same but never is boring; you know it's HIM but he's 'different somehow', does that make sense to you? Not a fan of the lyrics or the sound of the second one, but the first's always been a favorite, thanks for the reminder..

Mustang makes a good point about popularity and personal loyalty. I'd probably go see Tull or Supertramp and be mad they played a new song at the concert in lieu of a personal favorite.
But, Leon Russell could play ALL new songs and I"d be happy. hmmm

Mustang,

I saw Tull once back in the 70s. I'd see them again. They are now relegated to nostalgia shows, as far as I know they have not been actively putting out new music.

Z,

What about the lyrics of Wind Up do you not like? I thought the message was one that said God was a 7 day/wk God not the kind he was led to believe existed in his youth.

Tull's music has a certain lure for those of us heralding from that region I think. At least it does for me. And, despite their apparent atheism and outspoken politics at time, I've never stopped liking their stuff.
