Jethro Tull | Artist
The Ultimate Online Record Collection
Jethro Tull is a British rock band formed 1967 in Blackpool, Lancashire by Ian Anderson, Clive Bunker, Mick Abrahams and Glenn Cornick. Abrahams departed after the first album to form Blodwyn Pig and Cornick left in 1970 to form Wild Turkey. Before Martin Barre became Tull's signature guitarist, Tony Iommi played for a brief period before going on to form Black Sabbath. Tull started as a blues-based rock band but soon found their unique Progressive-Folk sound under the leadership of frontman and flautist Ian Anderson. The albums Stand Up, Benefit, Aqualung and Thick as a Brick, released between 1969-1972 are masterpieces. Other outstanding albums include Minstrel in the Gallery, Songs From the Wood and Heavy Horses.
