Jethro Tull - This Was mp3 play

This Was is the debut studio album by the British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1968. Recorded at a cost of £1200, it is the only Jethro Tull album with guitarist Mick Abrahams, who was a major influence for the sound and music style of the band's first songs. When the album was released the band was already performing at the Marquee Club in London, where other successful British groups, such as the Rolling Stones and The Who, had started their careers.

Jethro Tull was initially a strange kind of blues band. Their first line-up included Mick Abrahams, Glenn Cornick, Clive Bunker, and Ian Anderson. Shop this was on burning shed. The debut album hit in the British charts, partly thanks to great airplay from BBC Radio DJ John Peel. In June 1968, just before this album was recorded, Jethro Tull began a residency at London’s famed Marquee Club (where the ‘Stones and The Who also launched their careers). Band advisers failed to get Ian to give up the flute and let Mick do all the singing. The album was recorded without any record company contract presuming, correctly, that a deal could be made afterwards. Tull began their first US tour in January 1969, immediately after securing the services of guitarist Martin Barre.

Producer – Jethro Tull, Terry Ellis. Written-By – Bunker (tracks: 10), Cornick (tracks: 10), Anderson (tracks: 1 to 3, 6, 7, 9, 10), Abrahams (tracks: 3, 4, 10), Ellis (tracks: 10). Notes. This was commenced on Thursday 13th June and finished on Friday 23rd August (1968). Track 2 is "Some Day The Sun Won't Shine On You" on CD. Track 3 is "Begger's Farm" on CD. Track 4 is "Move On Along" on CD. Issued in a standard jewel case with an 8-page booklet

Jethro Tull was very much a blues band on their debut album, vaguely reminiscent of the Graham Bond Organization only more cohesive, and with greater commercial sense. The revelations about the group's roots on This Was - which was recorded during the summer of 1968 - can be astonishing, even 30 years after the fact

Jethro Tull photographed circa 1970. Even the album title, This Was, was self-reflexive, as to say out with the old, in with the new, even right as the album hit shelves. Over a five-decade career, Jethro Tull would leap further into the realms of classical, jazz and world music. But their 1968 debut still holds up as a rawer, more immediate version of their sound. If you prefer your progressive rock a la carte, This Was will do in a pinch.
