53 Rarities and What-Ifs 6

The preshow included Santana’s Samba Pa Ti from Abraxas, Jethro Tull’s Broadsword (I always think of it as one of his Scottish Songs), Status Quo’s elderly but still hale Caroline and Supertramp and It’s A Long Road.

We overran for a change, and Martin Barre’s ‘A Blues For All Reasons’ got bumped into the postshow.  What we might have said about it is

“He was a late starter, but it seems he needed an outlet for the creativity that was curbed in by being a member of Jethro Tull. His first three solo albums spaced out over a full decade, Barre has come back in force after Anderson declared J-Tull to be a thing of the past: he has put out three new albums in as many years since 2013.”

As is often the case, I went on for a bit after the post-show and we all had some fun dancing when I didn’t get in the way with chat.
