Catching Up With The Past

Jethro Tull started out as a typical British blues band and made a dramatic change once Mick Abrahams quit. Ian Anderson's folk and artsy side took over and we were blessed with Aqualung, Thick As A Brick, and Passion Play.

The group had a bunch of 45s and an EP laying around and decided to gather them all up into an elaborate package, complete with 12-page booklet chock full of photos. The two-record set featured a trio of previously unreleased tracks and one side from their November 4, 1971 benefit concert for Phoenix House at Carnegie Hall. The UK-only EP Life Is A Long Song makes up most of side four.
