Comments: I recently have been listening a lot to Nightcap and the Chateau recordings. I remembered about the Minstrel in the Red House bootlegs that includes the raw recording of what was to be a side of the double album that was reworked as A Passion Play. I then found a bootleg called "The Lost Chateau Album (A Partial Reconstruction). It is very interesting as an attempted to recreate to some degree the double album. Of this bootleg I will post only this piece, it's the track from Minstrel in the Red House remastered, and the guy who did the remastering did a really wonderful job. I unfortunately don't know his name to credit him here. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

A New Day and Brick Live and Full

No, I'm not talking about Martin Barre's New Day. It's a New Day for the blog. It happens I'm quite involved with Jethro Tull once more, listening a lot, reading a lot, putting things together for a Tull project I hope one day I'll be able to disclose to you all. Tull it's one the things in my life that comes and goes all the time but never leaves for good. I just really stopped due to the big dissapointment of having all my posts of years wasted by Mediafire's decision to shut down my account. I'm not capable now of uploading the bootlegs once more because I have no access to them at this moment. My external HD has just died and my main notebook is with a weird problem. I can't log on in my admin account, so everything is locked there. Safe but inacessible for now.
I'll begin, however, to post a few things in here. I don't really know what I'll be posting in the future, but yesterday I came accross a Youtube video that ignited my sleeping, but not dead, pleasure to share Tull through this blog. So without any more delays, a Pro-shot film of Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson & Band perfoming Thick As A Brick live, like the old days. It's nice to see this. The music is really well played, the overcoats, the phone thing updated with Skype, and Ryan O'Donnel helping out really well with the vocal parts.
Really awesome. Hope you enjoy! Oh, and leave a comment, so I can see if this blog still has any audience at all!

Keep on Tullin'!

O Fim (The End)

Sempre soube que esse dia chegaria e chegou. Minha conta do Mediafire foi suspensa. Nenhum link do blog jamais funcionará novamente. Antes da conta ser suspensa recebi mais alguns strikes contra os arquivos hospedados, dessa vez com uma maior explicação e nome da empresa reclamante (I always knew this day would eventualy come and it's now upon us. My mediafire account was shut down. No link in the blog will work ver again. Before the account suspension I received a few more strikes against the files, but this time it came with a more detailed explanation and the name of the company who complained:
MediaFire has received notification under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") that your usage of a file is allegedly infringing on the file creator's copyright protection.
The file named 1976 - It's A Boy Part I.rar is identified by the key (tlmioznj5jz).
As a result of this notice, pursuant to Section 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, we have suspended access to the file.
The reason for suspension was:
Information about the party that filed the report:
Company Name: Muso TNT Limited
Contact Address: Studio 12, 6-8 Cole Street London SE1 4YH
Contact Name:
Contact Phone: 
Contact Email:
Copyright infringement violates MediaFire's Terms of Service. MediaFire accounts that experience multiple incidents of alleged copyright infringement without viable counterclaims may be terminated.
Copyrighted media relating to 'Jethro Tull'
E essa foi a história. Alguns dias depois a conta foi exterminada. Me diverti muito postando os bootlegs nesse blog. Arrumando as MP3 em bom bitrate, ajeitando todas as tags, caçando artwork quando não tinha, levantando dados sobre os shows para postar com todas informações, e comentando sobre o bootleg em questão. Muitos bootlegs e gravações raras do Jethro Tull, coisas como o bootleg da John Evan's Band e Waters Edge, o último sendo um show da nova turnê solo do Ian com TAAB 1 e 2 inteiras. Meu próximo post seria um show do Martin Barre's New Day, que está muito legal, reintrepertações de clássicos do Tull com o grande Martin e outros ótimos músicos. Vai ficar pra próxima. Hoje infelizmente não tenho mais o tempo hábil para achar outro meio de compartilhar tudo isso, esse blog ficará aqui em memória da diversão que me proporcionou, da satisfação de compartilhar coisas que quando ouvi pela primeira vez me deixaram maravilhado, e poder proporcionar isso a outros fãs pelo mundo. Foi muito legal. Ficará na memória!
Obrigado a todos que acessaram, ajudaram, mandaram e-mails e curtiram isso tudo!

And that was the story. Some days after the account was terminated. I had a lot of fun posting the bootlegs here. Encoding the MP3 with a good bitrate, working on the tags, looking for artworks when there was none available (even made some!), searching for data about the show to post all relevant information, and comenting about the bootlegs. Many bootlegs and rare recording of Jethro Tull, things like the bootleg of John Evan's Band e Waters Edge, the last one was a show of the current Ian tour with the complete TAAB 1 and 2. My next one was going to be a show of Martin Barre's New Day, wich is quite good, Tull classics reinterpreted by good old Martin and great musicians. Maybe next time. Nowadays I do not have the time anymore to find a new way to share all that stuff, this blog will remain here in memory of all the fun I had with it, the satisfaction of sharing stuff that made me astonished when I first heard them, and being able to give the same oportunity to fans around the world. We had a hell of a run! 
Thanks to everyone who visited the blog, helped out, sent e-mails and enjoyed all of this!

Keep on Tullin'!

Hoje recebi o seguinte e-mail do Mediafire deletando arquivos do DVD do show em Instanbul (Today I received the following e-mail from Mediafire erasing files from the Instanbul DVD):
The file (1991 - Instanbul Amphithatre DVD.part08.rar) violates the MediaFire Terms of Service. Due to it being distributed from your account, it has been removed. Also, a Strike has been placed against your account and can lead to a termination of service.
Respondi com o seguinte texto (I answered the following text):
Today I received e-mails about files that were deleted for violating terms of service.
I have a blog called Bootullegs, in wich I post exclusivelly bootlegs of the band Jethro Tull and it's members.
A bootleg is an amateur recording of a concert, not available comercially, therefore a recording no one profits from. I distribute this recordings for free, because I love this band. This recordings, and this blog are for people who have all official material of the band and still like it so much that want more and more.
I respect copyrights, I have posted things and taken them off when discovered they were officialy released, once I posted a show in 2008 that was released some time later and I took it of the air and posted a link for people to buy the album from Amazon.
I want to know what is wrong with distributing the files I distribute. I have been using Mediafire services for a long time without complaints, if this is to come to an end I would appreciate if the whys were explained to me really well.
I noticed that a DVD was the pivot of this, if someone really owns it I will take it of the air immediately with a excuse me blog post to go with it. Please help me figure this out. 
My blog:
The refered post that was taken of the air: 
Estou esperando uma resposta, mas não tenho grandes esperanças. Se a conta for fechada, infelizmente o blog também parará as atividades. Resta esperar.  (I am waiting for an answer, without big hopes. If the account is closed, unfortunately, the blog will also stop the activities. Now we wait)

Comentários: Esse ano Ian Anderson resolveu lançar Thick As A Brick 2! Álbum controverso, que dividiu os fãs entre calorosos defensores e irredutíveis críticos, e que eu pessoalmente gostei muito, apesar de admitir que certos importantes detalhes, como o baterista por exemplo, poderiam ter sido melhores. Anyway, o show apresentado nessa turnê (Ian Solo! Importante lembrar), conta com TAAB 1 e 2 tocadas na íntegra, com direito a revisitar as piadas e brincadeira durante o show em homenagem as apresentações originais dos anos 70. Gostei bastante, achei um show bem executado e tocado, e fico feliz do Ian ter tido a iniciativa de colocar outro vocalista no grupo, não só pra que ele ficasse mais livre na flauta, mas porque certas partes vocais estão fora de seu alcance há muito tempo. Recomendo!
This year Ian Anderson released Thick As A Brick 2! Controversial record which divided the fans between hot defenders and irreducible critics, and that I personally liked a lot, although I have to admit that certain important details, like the drummer per instance, that could have been better. Anyway, the show presented in this tour (Ian Solo, important to remember!) has TAAB 1 and 2 played whole, with jokes and weather forecasts during the show to pay homenage to the presentations of the 70's. I really enjoyed it, it's a well executed show, and I'm happy that Ian put another singer in the group, not only to be able to play more flute parts, but also because there are certain vocal parts that he just can't sing for a long time now. Recomended!
