You get a glimpse of the psychedelic Jazz bass in this footage:



The lighting doesn't bring out the colours especially well, and I actually think it looks quite bad! I like the lefty neck however.

It looks like the odd reverse V bass has Guild humbuckers fitted? It seems that he was rather fond of these pickups. He also had that sonic blue refin'd Guild Starfire that he had modified to a two pickup instrument. It had Bisonics (somebody on Talkbass has/had it). Clearly Glenn was semi fond of Guild basses even if this doesn't seem too apparent form the lineup here.

I think he may have been mistaken (or he may have forgotten) as far as using it on stage because this photo clearly shows him using it in a performance. It certainly was not seen in many photographs.



I think this might be from some TV performance so it's probably a playback.

Screenshot fodder... all sorts of interesting close-ups... there's a bunch of other material up...

Staring at the event horizon is a dirty job, but someone has to do it...

The first video is really cool because it shows Glenn actually using the EBO and then later his first Thunderbird!
Thanks for posting that!

I love seeing the footage of the band onstage, with Glenn playing an EB-3. It looks like the same gig as this:



An interesting period for the band, somewhere between being a blues/jazz/heavy group and slowly getting their prog trappings. It looks like Martin Barre is taking a long solo spot and Glenn and Ian are mocking his drawn out solo by bunking down on stage. Quite a lot of implied camaraderie and brotherly unity (as also shown in the footage) rather than the slick ultra-disciplined band (Ian's band) of a few years later .

Just bought a box set..The first three Tull albums with Glenn.

Excellent playing...very creative...great sound...

Thanks for turning me on to this one.

And yes, these 3 albums sound like it is a collective band, rather than "Ian's Band"

I have the first two, but I need to track down a copy of Benefit. I might track down the Steve Wilson remaster or Stand Up as well, as my copy is a bit murky and there isn't always a great deal of separation between the instruments.

I have all the Wilson remaster boxes (usually 2CD/2DVD) from "Aqualung" to "Songs From The Wood" and "Heavy Horses" on pre-order. Excellent all with great bonus tracks big booklets. I should get the "Stand Up" as well before it's sold out.
