The Making Of Thick As A Brick DVD
The DVD with the most extensive original Thick As A Brick tour concert footage ever produced. Actually, the first.
There really is no DVD in any market that addresses the original 1972/73 Thick As A Brick tour. Why not until now? In 2016. Who knows. But Tommygun Video noticed there was nothing in any market and once again is the first to take action.
Unlike The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway which has a very good amount of footage to work with when I recreated it, this is not the case with the original Thick As A Brick tour. There is limited footage (although there is MORE than enough footage to recreate an entire show but it is being withheld but that's another story for another time)
to work with this time and rather than fill in many, many minutes of missing footage with creative use of photos, etc., I decided the best way to present this footage as one continuous concert was to produce it as a concert documentary with commentary from Ian Anderson, Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond, & Martin Barre. They tell us many interesting stories on how this legendary album was made as the concert plays out.
Why it took 44 years to present this remarkable, legendary show in concert as a documentary is beyond us. But again, it takes Tommygun Video to notice these things and even though we may get some criticism we feel we MUST do this. Why? Simply because no one else will do it!
I highly recommend this collector's item DVD for anyone who attended the original tour or anyone who enjoys collecting rare footage of any kind from some of the most famous tours that were never captured professionally on film or tours where the amateur footage is being witheld by certain individualsfrom public viewing, or whatever the reasons may be. And if any more footage were to surface in the coming months, years and there is enough to put together the entire show, unedited, from beginning to end, then Tommygun Video will do just that.
