The Runaway
5 stars 6th Single!

This is Jethro Tull's sixth single in only 2 years, which is quite an accomplishment for a then- young band like Jethro Tull, especially with their musical styling of Prog Folk. Jethro Tull were pioneers in terms of composition, with writing a song in 5/4, and somehow managing to make it a hit single, reaching #11 in the U.S. Top 40. This song is such a classic, you can recognize it, or at least the fact that it's Jethro Tull, just by listening to the first acoustic guitar chords strummed by the fantastic singer, acoustic guitarist and flautist, Ian Anderson.

5/5, just for it's greatness and availability. This single was one that record collectors thought was a keeper and can be found all around the internet, and even certain vinyl stores, just by having a look in the right places. Oh right, and the song isn't too bad either, hehe.

The Runaway | 5/5 |
