Songs From The Coliseum [Uxbridge 372, 2CD]

Live at the Seattle Center Coliseum, Seattle, WA; March 3, 1977. Very good to excellent audience mono recording.

This set was previously shared among fans as Came Down Out Of The Sky To Cry You A Song, missing the first six tracks on Disc One. A version of this complete show was shared on the net in May this year, which prompted a fan, luciferburns, to comment that Jethro Tull’s 1977 tour was the group’s “last hoorah as far as I’m concerned as I think Songs From The Wood was their last truly inspired album and tour.”

Put it this way, if you are a Jethro Tull fan, you will be hugely entertained and will not be disappointed, with Ian Anderson’s flute solo towards the end of Disc One a particular highlight. Perhaps there is simply something beguiling in the set’s (or the songs’) rusticity.

Thanks to Lincoln Park Mark for sharing the tracks.

  3. Big O strikes again. First, the Zeppelin Seattle show I was at in 1975. Now, one of the Tull concerts I also attended. Great find. Can’t wait to hear. It’s nice to reminisce the good old days when there were good shows almost every week or two and they were affordable. Thanks Big O and Lincoln Park Mark….

  4. hey mark, this is a great show. thanks! i won’t add the lp cause that band sucks. no offense, if you’re a fan.

    i dug boc-cleveland too, magical sound boogie and was i think somerville story was yours too. i have zeppelin-dallas on my ipod, but that was phil’s show. it’s good but not as good magical sound boogie, live on blueberry hill and or the forum 77 shows. killer!!!

  5. Thanks bigO and Lincoln Park Mark!. Saw the Washington DC (Largo, Md at the Capitalist Center, actually) part of this tour. Caught up with Tull again 3 years ago. Slowing down, but still great. Agree with the comments about Songs From The Wood being the end of the beginning….the rest just started sounding like retreads.

  12. Thanks for the music. I first saw Tull at Manchester University in 1968, they were supporting Cream. We were absoulutly stunned at what we saw and heard, if it was any other band than Cream, Tull would have blown them away but Clapton, Bruce and Baker were at their peak at the time and nobody was going to do that. It cost us 6 shillings ( 30 pence )admission.

  13. I saw the this Tull concert on March 3rd in Seattle, then drove with friends to Washington State University in Pullman, WA to see the band 2 nights later on Saturday, about 5th row seats. Fantastic performance, even better than their concert in Seattle. Saw all of their 70s tours, they were by far my favorite band!

  14. does anybody know of a decent tull concert from the era when Mick Abrahams was playing guitar for them?

    By sluggo on Apr 21, 2012

  15. there really isnt much in the way of tull pre dec 68. abrahams left before rnr circus which was filmed in the 2nd week of dec 68. there are actually more recordings of blodwyn pig out there than there are of early tull. there seems to be a bunch of tull 69’s but thats later than u want sadly.
    for a tad of extra info check out

    im sure u have looked on the usual sites for any material u could find on tull pre dec 68. but if u were looking for just anything with mick playing and i dont blame u then search out bp stuff cuz thats just easier.
    there are 2 shows on from 70 one from 94. even tho mick hated traveling to the usa the older one is from the fillmore west.
    now its understood that he isnt on the jan 9th 69 show. and there is an item on sugarmegs just before that labeled 68-99 but there is nothing on there prior to 69 so i dont know why it says that date in its title.
    off the top of my head other than a few bbc recordings i only know of the rnr circus and thats with iommi as u know.
    this is the only other site i can offer u…

  16. Sounds like a great concert - judging from the tracks I was able to download.
    The tracks on megaupload are gone, of course, and I cannot get the html-site download to work, either.
    Would a re-upload of these tracks be possible?
    Thank you
