Locomotive Breath

"In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,
Runs the all-time loser,
Headlong to his death.
He feels the piston scraping
Steam breaking on his brow
Thank God, he stole the handle and
The train won't stop going
No way to slow down."
from Locomotive Breath Jethro Tull

Jethro Tull last century at a place that's been demolished. Captured on a film emulsion you can no longer buy. That's a flute in singer Ian Anderson's hand. According to their website, they are still playing. I liked the live version on their 1978 live double album Bursting Out, seen below in cassette form. Still available on iTunes (though it's not all killer)
