Yes, I know. I like both of them. Friends of Distinction also did Grazin’ in the Grass.
We’ve been working on our music collection, so our lists have become quite huge.
We saw Jethro Tull perform at a university concert about 1971/1972. I didn’t expect much, because his albums were o.k. but a bit too much on the weird side. Fortunately, the concert was so good, it absolutely blew away his recordings. What he did with a flute....

Reminds me of this time I was on a music discussion board and this deranged boomer was trying to sell everyone on the idea that not only was the 70s the golden age of music, but he thought JT was one of the greatest bands ever. A band who’s biggest hit was a song about some homeless dude checking out little girls in a park. I’d say he wasn’t making the most convincing case for his argument.
The other guys on the board tried to convince him otherwise, but there was no convincing him otherwise.
There’s 70s music that still sounds good today but JT isn’t among them. Their playing style, arrangements, and sound are very dated.
Alice Cooper, not so good on the music (but not bad), but another outstanding performer. There are so many of them ;-) Zappa, I wonder what he'd be creating today. Santana.
Late 60's, early 70's was a revolutionary era for music. Went on pretty good through the 70's, from my point of view.
