Avery Fisher Interview 1976 - Stereo Fireplace

There is a Rolling Stone interview from 1976 in which we learn that Avery Fisher had a very large vintage Western Electric Horn Loudspeaker built into a fireplace.  The link to the article takes a long time to load for some reason.  Perhaps the fireplace speaker looked like the one pictured below or one of the ones at this link:

Avery makes mention of Jethro Tull in the article.  I did not know this when I uploaded a youtube video of the Sound Transformer playing an excerpt of "Thick As A Brick" by Jethro Tull.  This video is thirteen minutes long.



If only we could have heard this band through a system like this back in the day.  Well, we can hear it now through the Stereo Fireplaces :)
