To round out this week of proggy goodness, I’ve posted the second set of Jethro Tull’s concert here in Madison on 3 November 2004. (I posted the first part last month
.) The first half of the show was mainly acoustic while the second half was when the band turned the amps up to 11. It’s a bit longer than the acoustic half and makes this show the longest I’ve posted yet at ~75 minutes. As I noted last month, I was at this concert. The highlights for me here are “Farm on the Freeway”, Martin Barre’s solo song “Stage Fright”, and the classic “My God”. I always get chills down my spine hearing that last one when the tense acoustic din is pierced by electric guitar. Plus it was nice to hear “Weathercock”. Considering that it was autumn and that George Bush was re-elected the day before, it’s lyrics were quite apt:Do you simply reflect changes in the patterns of the sky,
Or is it true to say the weather heeds the twinkle in your eye?
Do you fight the rush of winter; do you hold snowflakes at bay?
Do you lift the dawn sun from the fields and help him on his way?
