During their heyday (the 70s), Tull became one of the biggest concert draws, due to Anderson and the band's clownish stage antics and their amazingly complex interplay.,Their earlier albums, THIS WAS (#62), STAND UP (#20), and BENEFIT (#11), laid the groundwork for Tull's success, but it was 1971's AQUALUNG (#7) that put them over the top.,Not unlike many bands attempting to take rock to new levels through extended pieces, Tull released two back-to-back albums (THICK AS A BRICK, PASSION PLAY) containing one musical piece on each. Unlike many of those bands, both of these albums went to #1.,Jethro Tull also managed a couple of hits with "Living in the Past" (#11) and "Bungle in the Jungle" (#12). The band continues to release albums and tour. ~ Rick Clark ---------- Related Artists ----------- Anderson, Ian Gentle Giant Yes Focus ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Beatles, The Moody Blues Fairport Convention British Folk music AMG Artist ID # : P000004610 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Little Light Music, A |1992|Chrysalis |21954 | S T| OK This Is Not Love |1991|Audio Visu|6 | T| Catfish Rising |1991|Chrysalis |21863 |R | OK Rock Island |1989|Chrysalis |21708 |R S | Poor 20 Years of Jethro Tull |1989|Atlantic |50136 |R | Good Jethro Tull |1988|Chrysalis |1 | S | 20 Years of Jethro Tull - Highl|1988|Chrysalis |21655 |R | BestA 20 Years of Jethro Tull |1988|Chrysalis |21655 | S | Good Crest of a Knave |1987|Chrysalis |21590 | S | OK Original Masters |1985|Chrysalis |21515 | S | Classic Case, A |1985|RCA |7067 | | OK Under Wraps |1984|Chrysalis |21461 | S | Poor Lap of Luxury |1984|Chrysalis |1 | S | OK Broadsword & The Beast, The |1982|Chrysalis |21380 | S | Good A |1980|Chrysalis |21301 |R S | BestA Stormwatch |1979|Chrysalis |21238 | S | OK Heavy Horses |1978|Chrysalis |21175 | S | OK Bursting Out |1978|Chrysalis |21201 | S T| OK Songs from the Wood |1977|Chrysalis |21132 |R S | BestA Repeat: The Best of Jethro Tull|1977|Chrysalis |21135 | S | Good Too Old to Rock N' Roll, Too Yo|1976|Chrysalis |1111 | S | OK Ring out Solstice Bells |1976|Chrysalis |2 | S | M.U.: The Best of Jethro Tull |1976|Chrysalis |21078 |R S | Good Minstrel in the Gallery |1975|Chrysalis |21082 |R S | Good War Child |1974|Chrysalis |21067 | S | OK Passion Play, A |1973|Chrysalis |21040 | S | Poor Thick As a Brick |1972|Capitol |21003 | | Living in the Past |1972|Chrysalis |21035 |R S | BestA Life Is a Long Song |1971|Chrysalis |6106 | S | Aqualung |1971|Chrysalis |21044 |R S |+BestG Benefit |1970|Chrysalis |21043 |R S | Good Stand Up |1969|Chrysalis |21042 |R S | BestA This Was |1968|Chrysalis |21041 |R S | Good Thick As a Brick (24k U |Z |Mobile Fid|510 | | Thick As a Brick |Z |Mobile Fid|510 | | Stormwatch/Heavy Horses |Z |Pair |1018 | | OK Slipstream |Z |Pacific Ar|7467 | | Rocks on the Road |Z |Capitol |23818 | | Home |Z |Chrysalis |? | S | Best of Jethro Tull - the Anniv| | | | | 25th Anniversary |Z |Capitol |26004 |R | All-Music Guide Album Details (Alphabetical Order) ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 20 Years of Jethro Tull Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : Good Genre : Rock Type : box Date : 1988 (release) AMG ID : R000010388 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis F2-21655 LP Capitol 21653 1988 CS Chrysalis F4-21655 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Ian Anderson - fl/g/v ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 20 Years of Jethro Tull Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : Good Genre : Rock Type : video Date : 1989 (release) AMG ID : R000086446 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- Atlantic 50136 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Fans of Tull should enjoy this collection that amply documents the band's entire career. There are loads of live performances, TV appearances, and good interviews. The sound quality is quite good. ~ Rick Clark ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 20 Years of Jethro Tull - Highlights Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #097, entered Aug 13, 1988, on charts 015 weeks Genre : Rock Date : 1988 (release) AMG ID : R000010387 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis 21655 LP Chrysalis F1-21653 1989 CS Chrysalis F4-21653 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- This is a distilled version of tracks taken from Tull's boxed set. Broken down into four parts, it includes a smattering of hits, live tracks, and some key album sides. It might not be definitive, but it does give the listener a good idea of the band's musical range. ~ Rick Clark ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : 25th Anniversary Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock AMG ID : R000174966 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Capitol 26004 CD Chrysalis F2-26004 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Jethro Tull's 4-CD celebration of their quarter of a century in the music business is only worth the time of hardcore Tull fans. Two discs are full-length live performances (both discs contain two of the same songs), one disc is full of alternate versions of their most famous tracks, and a final disc of new remixes of "classic" tracks (which includes the third appearance of "A Song for Jeffrey" on the four CDs). Casual fans are much better served by one of the smaller collections. ~ All-Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : A Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #030, entered Sep 13, 1980, on charts 012 weeks Genre : Rock Date : 1980 (release) AMG ID : R000010382 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis F2-21301 1980 LP Chrysalis 1301 CS Chrysalis F4-21301 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- With the addition of ex-Roxy Music violinist and keyboardist Eddie Jobson and ex-Fairport Convention bassist Dave Pegg, Tull produced their most overt (and fully realized) folk/rock album.

Thematically, many of these songs were vehicles for Anderson's railings about how organized religion had restricted man's relationship with God. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Ian Anderson - fl/g/v Martin Barre - Guitar Clive Bunker - Drums Terry Ellis - Producer John Evans - Keyboards Jeffrey Hammond - Bass David.

But if you're still on these British rustics wavelength, you'll be pleasantly smitten with CATFISH RISING. Ian Anderson, their raffish leader and multi-instrumentalist, has written a varied batch of material here in a potpourri of styles, from sprightly acoustic jigs to lead weighted rock, all bearing his unmistakable stamp. It isn't Tull's most cohesive album, but because it's not tethered to concept, some people will actually find it easier to enjoy than the group's more pretentious masterworks. ~ Parke Puterbaugh, Stereo Review, December, 1991 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Classic Case, A Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : OK Genre : Rock Date : 1985 (release) AMG ID : R000010385 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- RCA XRL1-7067 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Crest of a Knave Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : OK Charts : Billboard #032, entered Oct 10, 1987, on charts 028 weeks Genre : Rock Date : 1987 (release) AMG ID : R000010386 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis F2-21590 1987 LP Chrysalis 1590 CS Chrysalis F4-21590 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Ian Anderson - fl/g/v ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Heavy Horses Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : OK Charts : Billboard #019, entered Apr 29, 1978, on charts 017 weeks Genre : Rock Date : 1978 (release) AMG ID : R000010380 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis F2-21175 1978 LP Chrysalis 1175 CS Chrysalis F4-21175 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Barriemore Barlow - Drums Martin Barre - Guitar John Evans - Keyboards John Glascock - Bass David.

Included are extended live tracks as well as popular numbers like "Christmas Song," "Song for Jeffery," "Hymn 43," and their biggest hit, "Living in the Past" (#11). The CD version has curiously omitted two of Tull's better early tracks -- "Teacher" and "Bouree." Besides "Hymn 43," LIVING IN THE PAST doesn't include any key tracks from AQUALUNG. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Mick Abrahams - Guitar Ian Anderson - fl/g/v Barriemore Barlow - Drums Martin Barre - Guitar Clive Bunker - Drums Glen Cornick - Bass Terry Ellis - Producer John Evans - Keyboards Jeffrey Hammond - Bass David.

Ian Anderson, Tull's celebrated frontman, has honed his multiple abilities to a fine edge ... his flute playing is infectious, his vocals right on the money, and his production work is at its finest. Moreover, he's achieved more of a live sound than he has in the past ... he has also kept his music safely in vogue with the mainstream hard rock/heavy metal scene. If the disc has a glaring shortcoming, it's that it lacks humor. ~ Clifford Meth, Rock & Roll Disc. ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Ian Anderson - fl/g/v ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Rocks on the Road Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock AMG ID : R000174960 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Capitol 23818 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Slipstream Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Type : video AMG ID : R000086447 --------- Album Releases --------- Pacific Arts 7467 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Songs from the Wood Artist : Jethro Tull Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #008, entered Mar 5 , 1977, on charts 022 weeks Genre : Rock Date : 1977 (release) AMG ID : R000010378 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Chrysalis F2-21132 CS Chrysalis F4-21132 1977 LP Chrysalis 1132 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- On SONGS FROM THE WOOD, Tull's aggressive rock interplay and Ian Anderson's fascination with early folk melodies from the British Isles produced a particularly appealing collection of songs.
