They have done another great remaster here. Most of the songs are wonderful. This is a serious blues-jazz-rock Tull ablum.

||"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.

||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.

||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.

||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.
