      I'm sorry too Ross. It could have been my one claim to fame (my sister plays
      the flute naked!) but alas not to be. 'Benefit' by Jethro Tull is still one
      of my favourite records.
      Cheers David R.



      > ....yeh, thats it, Jane Rutter ( apologies to Dave Ruston of scars, for
      insinuations that she may be his sister ).....thanks John, and you are right
      about Alan Luchetti's talents with the flute, he ( and Dave Allen ) are
      amazing players, and as TJ points out, KB was no slouch either........one of
      those instruments ya have be able to play, and not bullshit on....

        the flute is an interesting instrument in pop. I remember it in Goin'
        up the country Canned Heat and Mamas and Papas , but apart from
        Jethro Tull , flute was a pretty rare. I was definately the only
        flautist playing in Sydney bands in the late 69-70. (As a
        specialist).

            Hi Dave
            A belated welcome to the group & to a few other new names I've seen pop up this
            week. Hope ya's all have a great time here reminiscing about the period we
            celebrate & keeping us informed of the artists/musos current activities if ya
            happen to know/find out.
            Just one thing though please guys. Instead of replying at the end of all the
            posts which then necessitates scrolling through posts we've already read, could
            ya post ya reply at the top of the previous message instead. Oh yeah, and
            Canned Heat sounds OK by me ceptin' I can't play a note to save meself :-)
