"A good debut album"
This Was songs 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.

5 starsOutstanding remaster.
This Was album for sale They have done another great remaster here. Most of the songs are wonderful. This is a serious blues-jazz-rock Tull ablum. Mick's influence on this album seperates it from all the others by it's class and style. They did a great remastering job. It sounds fresh and clean.

Roots
This Was CD music 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
This Was buy CD music 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.
