JETHRO TULL – ” Live At The Los Angeles Forum ” June 23rd 1972

Posted: May 3, 2022 in MUSIC

Jethro Tull live audio at the Los Angeles Forum June 23rd1972. This is one of my favourite bootlegs of the “Thick As A Brick” tour with great sound and a very enthusiastic audience, so I dressed it up with lots of photos. I especially like how Jeffrey’s bass playing comes to the front in the mix.

Among my favourite Jethro Tull show. Which is difficult to gage when considering the shows the band performed “A Passion Play” in 73 and The “Warchild” tour in 75.
This though was highly anticipated and a landmark in terms of rock concerts of the day, as funny as it was surprising and electrifying.
