Songs from the Wood songs Product Information
Songs from the Wood album for sale by Jethro Tull was released May 20, 2003 on the Chrysalis/Capitol label. In terms of rustic, tights-wearing, elf-loving, flute-heavy, British/Celtic folk-tinged '70s prog-rock, SONGS FROM THE WOOD is the most Tull of all Jethro Tull albums. By 1977 the band had ventured far enough from its heavy blues-rock beginnings to create a completely unique, idiosyncratic sound, filled with European folk mythology, rural imagery and an endearing combination of art-rock and British folk-rock. Songs from the Wood CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs. ...See Full Description

||Such an enjoyable listen!|
Songs From The Wood is one of Jethro Tull's most complicated, artistic, progressive, and interesting albums. With this album, Ian Anderson was influenced by English folklore, primarily based on his move to the woods in 1975.

||One of their best!|
Songs from the Wood album for sale This is an excellent album. Some of their best music is here. As for the bonus tracks, the live version of Velvet Green is good, nothing special (it's more or less the same as the studio version), but Beltane is awesome.

This remaster is beyond outstanding. You can make out several dozen instruments played expertly and layered. Well engineered! Crisp as an SACD. Wow.

||Topnotch Tull Classic|
If you haven't heard or owned this one, you're in for a treat. A classic along with Aqualung, Benefit, and Thick as a Brick, Songs from the Wood lays out a different sound & theme, one culled from English folklore, woodsmanry, and country living as lyrical themes with some of Anderson's best poetry.

||This CD is for the mountains!|
I owned this as an album when it first came out. It was destroyed in a flood. I always remembered loving the music on this CD.
