Well you're correct that Walter Becker has been with Steely Dan since day one but in the early years he played bass. Jeff Skunk Baxter handled lead guitar duties.

Mick Abahams was the guitarist on Tull's first (and best) album.


IMHO not even close. Stand Up, Benefit...


In order to like those albums better you have to like Ian Anderson. I don't, He took Tull from be a potentially great band, to being an ordinary average band.


It's all in what people hear/like -- Stand Up, This Was, Benefit -- but I really like Aqualung & Thick as a Brick too -- same Warchild, Minstrels, Too Old To Rock altho the early ones can't be topped.......Tull, Ian -- they both rock -- they're 1 & the same I guess

Walter Becker is an obvious one -- at least I think he's been there all along


True, its all what you like and hear. I could talk those first three JT releases all day along with the first three ZZ Top and James Gang.

Back to Tull. if I had to pick one a gun point, it would be This Was. Not sure its the best of those three but just the one I prefer. I like the blues, jazz, 60's rock feel of it.

It is very interesting to see where they start to evolve into they're "prog" side on the next two. You can still hear hints of they're roots but you can also tell the music is going into another direction. I am sure due to Ian's vision for the band. What do you say about Martin? That guys guitar work on Benefit and Stand UP is some of the best of that era and still holds up today. He has some blistering solos it. A guitar player that gets WAY overlooked.

This is one of my fav Tull songs. It is a vision from John Peels BBC sessions. You can find it on the 20th anniversary box set for sure.

Another overlooked Tull release is Catfish Rising. A lot of good tunes on there. I HIGHLY recommend it.

totally- 'this was' being one of their best..but 'Benefits' right up there too. If you check out that Rolling Stones 'rock n roll circus' video of a song from 'this was'-you can see Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath playing guitar. Drummers pretty funny to watch too
