that there's any band that has a tendency to be disliked then suddenly liked in a revelation strikes me about as when people say "...you either love 'em or you hate 'em" - which does not apply to anyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 3:50pm rsj:

easy like how?
  Wed. 5/22/19 3:54pm Dean:

The backstory, I suppose, is that everybody in my crowd at the time loved JT, but I couldn't get over the prancing around and mugging and breathy flute, so I just gave up on the band. Yet I wanted to appreciate what everybody was raving about. As the albums emerged, I found less and less to admire at all. But with several decades of distance I now hear them more clearly.

aqualung was the first time i heard jethro tull, age 10-11, and i instantly loved it; but all of their subsequent releases were at least a slight disappointment. a few years later, when i explored the first 3, and "living in the past", i fell in love with those too. i never got sick of aqualung though. (might help that i stopped listening to commercial radio by 1980) and i listen to aqualung at least once/year in it's entirety, on or around easter.

...Time allows the Context to change. Even when Disco was happening - I knew some of it was just good Pop or Funk.

I saw Tull at The Spectrum in Philly in '79 (?). It was to support some album about Northern Seas Oil or some nonsense. I felt silly sitting there. I just wanted to hear an extended drum solo. The fusion-y prog-y band UK opened. John Wetton, Eddie Jobson and Terry Bozzio.
