Non Soul - Jethro Tull Soundalike

Anyone out there know a bit about prog rock?

I was sorting through a box of bits and bobs a while back and came across an Emidisc with the title "Gee's Whiz". it was only a few pence and thinking it was a misspelling I put it in my pile. When I played it, rather than being a Carla Thomas copy it turned out to be flute driven rock thing, sort of Jethro Tull style. It sounds too good to be a hopeful amateur. Anyone got a clue or can suggest a site for such stuff?

Blimey

That was quick, thanks. I'd never have guessed it was Love Affair.

Wonder why an Emidisc was made - we'll probably never know.

Cheers

Mike

Very Tull like indeed ,sawTull about ten times live always loved them since I bought life is a long song single off Donny market it had Nursie and Going up the pool on it .At the same time bought Hendrix ep single Hey joe,Watchtower and Voodoo child. don't know why just loved them..Later heard that Hendrix used to play with James Brown in his early years so there may be a connection .Always go back to soul though.

Very similar in Mkt Harborough, most were all soulies at heart but it didn't stop a Sunday afternoon or two with John Mayal, Eric Clapton or in the Court of the Crimson King. I recall though when it came down to style choices, I swapped my very beaten up copy of Disraeli Gears for a pristine copy of Hot Buttered Soul. I reckon I got the best deal. Mind you quite a few mates couldn't get on with either, preferring tunes that were more conventional and a lot more danceable.

I`m a massive proggy! 

I can just see Ian Anderson atop a very large speaker with flute in hand and on one leg. ian_tull.jpg

Very cool picture Steve. I saw JT live a couple of times back in the day.

Family were a Leicester band so saw them a few time too. I recall the guitarist played with a twin neck guitar.

However I could never quite get Captain Beefheart - way too prog for me.

Cheers

Same here.

Trout Mask Replica is one of the most overrated albums in the history of recorded music,in my opinion..there's so much better stuff out there in the Prog Rock genre.

Don Van Vliet wasn't exactly a nice fella either,by all accounts,  he was known to exercise an almost dictatorial control over his backing musicians,on one occasion he refused to pay them for a European tour they'd completed.

After years of enduring Beefheart's abusive behaviour it forced his entire band to quit on him, basically.

I will happily admit that he was pretty damn good on the 'Willie The Pimp' track from Zappa's 'Hot Rats' album though!
