2 stars It's not surprising that in three short years, by the time Aqualung was released, only Ian Anderson and Clive Bunker (and technically, David Palmer) were left from this lineup of Jethro Tull. And by the next album, Bunker had left. This group was primarily a blues band. And compared to many other British blues bands of the time, nothing special.

However, there are some very slight hints of what Anderson would accomplish in the coming years. My Sunday Feeling and A Song For Jeffrey heve been played in concert by the band for years. But Roland Kirk's Serenade To A Cuckoo, a jazzy number that hints of Bouree highlight's Abrahams' shortcomings as anything but a blues guitarist, and makes you long for Martin Barre.

2.5 stars.
