    I would pay good money for an album containing nothing but Ian's song introductions and stage banter over the years.

    played nearly their entire discography the last few days, been a favorite of mine of most of my life, really amazing how many terrific songs they have that only die-hard fans know about. Ian Anderson is in his own league as a songwriter.

    And now Crest of a Knave is hooking me. It sounds and feels like nothing else in their (or even Dire Straits') catalogue.

    Ericaterpstra - reading up in the deluxe Passion Play set I just bought, it turns out Ian never for a second considered breaking up. Announcing the band's plans to quit (only from touring, actually) was a kind of strange marketing ploy by their manager, done behind Ian's back.

    Also, Ian's Walk into Light and Tull's Under Wraps are amazing albums. Don't let the synths scare you.

    Ian was definitely disappointed and discouraged, but it was a rather different "almost break up" from what that phrase might suggest today, seeing as within a year they had *another* double album's worth of material ready to go, with only ten or so minutes taken from their *last* double album recording sessions the year before. Whatever doubts may have been entertained, the boys clearly didn't let them hang around long. (And we're all the luckier for it, eh?)

    Didn't they almost break up after A Passion Play in response to all the negative reviews?

    A Passion Play is probably just as good as Thick As A Brick, IMO. Of course I've listned to TAAB a lot more so I'd probably prefer to listen to APP because it sounds a lot more 'fresh.'
