3 stars The first album from Jethro Tull is quiet different to the the remaining first prog/rock/blues' albums (the superb Stand Up and the great Benefit). In these days the group is returned performing live many tracks from this work, expecially the jazz-rock Serenade To A Cuckoo (the Roland Kirk's song Ian has learned play flute) and the dark-bluesy Beggar's Farm. I saw them the 16 july in Matua (Italy) and the performance was very good (even if Ian's voice has had some diffulties in the first half). This album was also digitally remastered in 2001 with some interesting piece from the group early singles: the interesting Love Story (wich represents the last contribution from the first JT guitarist Mick Abrahams, then passed to form the blues-inspired goup Blodwin' Pig), the mithic A Christmas Song (of wich there's a revisited version in the Jethro Tull Christmas Album -2003-) and another jazzy played named One For John Gee (is a sort of tribute song to the Marquee Club manager).

"THIS WAS HOW WE WERE PLAYING THEN, BUT THINGS CHANGE. DON'T THEY (JT)........."
