Jethro Tull- Aqualung 50th Anniversary- Ian Anderson

Few albums from any time in the Rock Era continue  to satisfy quite so well as Jethro Tull's masterpiece "Aqualung". Ian Anderson smartly wrote songs for all seasons for a superb band, including the timeless rockers "Aqualung","Cross-Eyed Mary","Locomotive Breath," and "Hymn #43", but perfectly paced the album with tasty acoustic classics like "Wond'ring Aloud"and "Mother Goose". On "Aqualung" 's golden anniversary, Ian Anderson is my guest In the Studio.

Who- Live at Leeds 50th Anniversary- Pete Townshend 5-11

The Who Live at Leeds  may have been the first live album I ever bought, but it's safe to say that it has  since remained a benchmark with which to compare a half century of live performance pretenders to the throne of anything demonstrably better.

Pete Townshend- Empty Glass 40th Anniversary- Pete Townshend

By April 1980 we in the rock music world were beginning to miss Townshend's new music, which had been a pretty consistent mainstay of rock'n'roll for fifteen years prior but had been understandably MIA since the sudden death of madcap Who drummer Keith Moon in 1978. Townshend filled Empty Glass   with his grief over the loss of his friend, as well as very personal subjects including alcoholism, adult relationships, and his conflicted reaction to Punk Rock in the songs"Rough Boys","A Little is Enough","Gonna Get Ya", and pop spiritual"Let My Love Open the Door", a Top Five US hit.

Who- Quadrophenia pt 2- Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey

(cont)... As The Who's recognized Quadrophenia auteur , Townshend has assessed their almost half-century of musical creation and found it to be good . Pete is a delightful , witty , thoughtful , and refreshingly honest conversationalist who can easily and effectively examine The Who's epic 1973 opus through a slightly-detached , objective eye which only the passage of time , and maturity , can provide . -Redbeard
