This Was album for sale Product Description



This Was album for sale by Jethro Tull was released Sep 24, 2001 on the Chrysalis label. Jethro Tull's first album, THIS WAS, recorded and released in 1968, shows a band that is a far cry from their better-known incarnation as a prog rock outfit in the late 1970s. This Was CD music Instead, Tull come across here as a solid and talented blues band with elements of jazz, folk, and psychedelia thrown in. The band's sound was heavily influenced by guitarist, singer, and songwriter Mick Abrahams, whose bluesy singing and leads distinguish this disc in Tull's discography. This Was CD music contains a single disc with 29 songs.   ...See Full Description

"A good debut album"
This is quite unlike their later material,but still quite good for a debut album. I'ts pretty raw,earthy,and bluesy,compared to their progressive period starting in the 70's. I haven't heard the new remastered version,but my original issue had too much treble in the sound mix and kind of hurt your ears when listening to it. So I hope on this issue they have deemphazied the treble. I would recomend this it's very good.

Blow the Claghorn for Jethro Tull!
So they named their first album This Was Jethro Tull and made themselves look like old men. And I don't know what all the dogs are about. But these guys are just crazy. More like the typical blues/jazz rock bands of the time, but still with that Jethro Tull stamp. The instrumental Dharma For One is awesome, with the bizarre claghorn, an instrument Ian Anderson built from a sax and a bike horn, or something like that; and great drumming. And the bonus tracks make this a must-have; all great songs and they show the beginning of Tull's progression from this music to their later stuff.

Roots
I have always loved Jethro Tull music, but knew nothing of their early work. This album is steeped in it's blues, and shows how the blend of what they are known for came about.

The most underrated Tull album
Great album, if you like later rock blues artists. Tull sounds more like Cream here than Tull, but the mix of sound comes out extremly well. Beggar's Farm, along with Hunting Girl from Songs From the Wood, is Tull's most underrated song. This album is very deep and has few duds. I also reccomend Tull's other albums, in the following order.1. Aqualung 2. Thick as a Brick 3. Minstral In The Gallery 4. Songs From the Wood 5. Stand Up 6. Heavy Horses.

jethro tull at their best
This music was steeped in jazz, blues and rock with first flute I can remember incorporated into a rock band. The songs are inspiring and had good airplay on FM radio. When Tull went heavier into rock and concept albums from fourth album on, they lost me and their core audience changed. Their creativity sufferred as well.
