3 stars An album steeped in the sounds of traditional blues. Great flute work that is so reminiscent of Gravy Train it is painstakingly obvious that the latter band were hugely influenced by this great band called Jethro Tull. It is hard to believe JT had started thgeir studio albums now almost 40 years ago. This Was is a flawed album as most were for debut albums at this time or era however the album as a whole is steadfastedly engaging, intriguing and deliciously listenable. Inoffensive but most of all incredible to think that This Was was such a good album and yet the band had much more to evolve into with later studio releases showing subtle movement in styles. Highlights would have to be ' My Sunday Feeling' and the ever so popular ' Song For Jeffrey'. Three and a half stars.
