Music Diary – 26th June

Hey Ho – Let’s Go!

Welcome to my music diary for today, 26th June!
On this day I completed my Jethro Tull collection with two nice vinyls:
In 1996 I bought the UK version of the single „Broadsword„/“Fallen on Hard Times“ which was originally released in 1982 to promote the awesome album „The Broadsword and the Beast„.

And in 2001 I received a copy of the „Aqualung“ album – but not the regular one! I got the very special „Quadradisc“ version of it which was first released back in 1975.

Richard McCracken was born on 26th June 1948! He was the bass player in the supergroup called Taste (from 1968 until 1970) which featured the outstanding guitar player Rory Gallagher and drummer John Wilson! So happy bday to Richard!

Music Diary – 19th June

Welcome to my music diary!

Today (19th June) is another day with no concert entry – shame on me 😉

But nevertheless I did something which has to do with music – buying stuff for my collection:

So back in 1997 I bought the 25th Anniversary Special Edition of Jethro Tull’s masterpiece „Thick As A Brick„. It features the legendary newspaper sleeve as a fold out and two bonus tracks: „Thick as a Brick“ (live excerpt from 1978)  and an interview with the band about the album which was recorded and released in the year of 1972.

On the 19th June 1948 a very talented musician was born: Mr. Nick Drake. This man did only record three studio albums („Five Leaves Left“ – 1969, „Bryter Layter“ – 1970 and „Pink Moon“ – 1972), but all these releases are just masterpieces. Nick Drake died far too early at the age of 26 (25th November 1974).

Cheers,

Alex Melomane
