Wild Turkey - Live In Wellington 1973 - 2014 Audio Archives AACD 069.
To commemorate the lives of original Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick and vocalist Gary Pickford-Hopkins, both recently deceased, here's a very rare and previously unheard live set recorded in March 1973 at The Townhouse, Wellington by Glenn's post Tull outfit, the widely respected Wild Turkey. The CD features eight songs including the rarely heard 'If You See Kay' alongside favourites s.a. 'Butterfly', 'Good Old Days' and 'Tomorrow's Friend', plus a storming two-part finale of 'Traffic Island Jam' followed by a blistering version of 'Johnny B. Goode' for an encore. A fitting tribute to one of the best bands of the early '70s!
This powerful set was recorded by the band at the Townhouse in Wellington just after Tweke Lewis had left to join Man. The set includes a selection of fine material including ‘Good Old Days’ and the epic ‘Eternal Mother/The Return’ together with some rarely heard songs ‘If You See Kay’ and ‘Tomorrow’s Friend’. Guitarist Mick Dyche really lets loose on the lengthy ‘Traffic Island Jam’ and Glenn Cornick’s bass improvisation is a hallmark of Turkey’s sound together with the outstanding vocals of Gary Pickford-Hopkins.
This CD is dedicated to the memories of Gary and Glenn and comes with nice rare pics and detailed sleeve notes.
