3 stars First Jethro Tull album, and yet very distant of the sound that would become bandīs mark. I think it happened not because they had a long road to walk and consolidate their music, it was already consolidated on their second work Stand Up, but because Ian Anderson was not in total control of the band due to the strong presence of Mick Abrams bluesy preferences and related preferences.

So, it has some historical interest related to being a monster band debut; but this is not the only good part here. The best of all is that a bunch of creative music is placed here ! There are highlights like Beggarīs Farm and Ian Anderson playing Serenade For a Coocko Also very interesting are some songs in side two (I own this album prior to cd age), like Dharma For One and Catīs Squirrel.

By means of conclusion it is an interesting album for a music appreciator. It is far away from what would become Jethro Tull trademark, but on the other hand it makes us curious about what would be Anderson and Abrams working together for a longer time; or like a master reviewer of this site said, it leads us to know the musical work Mick Abrams developed after he left Jethro Tull.
