Australia is more known for its hard rock and goth punk than its heavy prog. But Sydney’s Tully was one of the few acts in Oz who served as direct competition to the likes of Jethro Tull, King Crimson, and even Henry Cow, all of whom were making their own waves across the globe from within the UK. From the excellent Aussie reissue label Chapter Music comes this pair of live recordings from 1969 and 1970 at the Sydney Town Hall, both of which are rare captures of the original incarnation of Tully on stage, including a performance of the continent’s very first rock opera, “Love 200”, which documents an expidition to map the Transit of Venus in 1769, and hasn’t been publicly available since the early ‘70s.
