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 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.

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'!
