Jethro Tull

Formed in early ‘68, by Ian Anderson. The early Jethro Tull released their first Blues-oriented album, This Was, in the latter part of 1968 before moving on to more home-grown and eclectic efforts in 1969 with Stand Up and a flutter of single releases, including Living In The Past.

Benefit, Aqualung, and Thick As A Brick followed and the band’s success grew internationally. Various band members came and went, but the charismatic front man and composer, flautist and singer Ian Anderson continued, as he does to this day, to lead the group through its various musical incarnations.

Jethro Tull were, by the mid-seventies, one of the most successful live performing acts on the world stage. With now some 30-odd albums to their credit, a Grammy Award and sales totalling around 60 million, the apparently uncommercial Tull have continued over the next four decades to travel near and far to fans across the world.
