A Little Bit Of Jethro Tull


It’s 50 years since Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull came to the forefront of popular music. They have since gone on to sell 60 million albums. Ian chatted to Mike about Then, Now and How “All Things Must Pass”.

You can hear the Interview again here:

    My first hearing of Jethro Tull, was when their single, Living In The Past was released, back in 1969 when i was 15.
    I became an immediate fan of theirs, but because of not having much money at that time, buying records had to take second place to other commitments.
    It was when I started work, that I was able to indulge myself in Tull LPs, my first purchase, the double album, Living In The Past, which includes singles and album tracks, but sadly NOT their first single, the wonderful MGM label release, “Aeroplane”.
    One of my favourite and now most played Tull album in my collection, has to “Thick As A Brick”, an album which I love MORE now, than when I first bought it!
    I bought it, without hearing any of it, just because it was their then latest album release by Jethro Tull but somehow, it didn’t really click with me at that time, a few plays and then into the record rack to be forgotten.
    Years on though, I rediscovered it again, a few years back, after tentatively, buying the Steve Wilson Remaster. WOW! what a difference to the original vinyl, released at a time when it was pot luck on the acquisition of a good pressing of an LP. I got the mediocre one! The new CD release, is in one word, Fantastic! Hearing bits of music, previously veiled by poor sound engineering and groove quality, its like listening to a new release album! A totally different listing experience.
