This is the famed Tull-A-Vision footage from Tampa Stadium. On their 76 US tour JT began using giant screens so the folks at the back could see the band. Commonplace now but relatively new back then. This is a recording of what was shown on the screen. It's known as 'part one' but there is no part two. It was purchased by a group of Tull fans after languishing for many years in someone's basement/attic/garage and lovingly transferred to DVD. There are a few glitches/cuts and it isn't the full show. Due to it's nature there are not many long-shots.

  1. This is an excellent DVD - it's great to see this lineup of Tull in action (or in fact any lineup from the 70s in this kind of quality). Ian Anderson is wearing an unusual costume (it was somewhere between the "codpiece era" and the "Country Squire"). A colourful and enjoyable show, with some rarely played pieces from "Too Old to R'n'R" - this was the first half of the show, so no Aqualung or Locomotive Breath this time. Many thanks, Edge, for responding to my request.
