It’s Sunday and you know what that means… all thingss Johnny Cash or all things God. Arguably interchangeable.
This classic rock album came out two years before I was brought into this world, so please forgive my ignorance of it’s true import in the world of rock. I know it’s a big deal and It’s fro sure a top 20 cover album art pick. Aqualung by Jethro Tull I am sure could have it’s own dedicated blog but this will be brief like all entries to keep us on track. I’m still catching up from being without power for a week and we JUST GOT INTERWEB BACK TODAY! Back to Jethro. That would be a great name for a kid. Crank up the volume on this album. Tho I’m attaching only photos today.
WIKI: Jethro Tull are a British rock group formed in Luton, Bedfordshire in December 1967. Their music is characterised by the vocals, acoustic guitar, and flute playing of Ian Anderson, who has led the band since its founding, and the guitar work of Martin Barre, who has been with the band since 1969, after he replaced Mick Abrahams. Initially playing blues rock with an experimental flavour, they have also incorporated elements of classical music, folk music, jazz, hard rock and art rock into their music. One of the world’s best-selling music artists, the band have sold more than 60 million albums worldwide in a career that has spanned more than forty years.
Here’s evidence that this guy can jam a mean flute. (I’m keenly aware of how uncool I sound). And that hair. I dig him just for the hair.
Aqualung is the fourth studio album by the rock band Jethro Tull. Released in 1971, Aqualung, despite the band’s disapproval, is regarded as a concept album, featuring a central theme of “the distinction between religion and God”. The album’s “dour musings on faith and religion” have marked it as “one of the most cerebral albums ever to reach millions of rock listeners”. Aqualung‘s success marked a turning point in the band’s career, with them going on to become a major radio and touring act.
We are back to our regularly scheduled Johnny Cash Sundays, next Sunday, I promise. xo
