Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

Pictures #0001-1495


Jethro Tull came together in December of 1967 in Bedfordshire, England, in the town of Luton.  Their first album, “This Was,” came out on October 25, 1968 and showed that this hard-rocking blues band had numerous other elements involved in their musical makeup, elements that would make them global superstars in a few short years.  At the forefront of the group stood Ian Anderson (guitars, vocals, flute, keyboards), along with Mick Abrahams (guitars/vocals), Glenn Cornick (bass and harmonica), and Clive Bunker (drums and percussion).  It is difficult to put the band into a category because included with the rocking blues were also acoustic elements from English folk music.  Add to that the fact that the show they put on before frenzied crowds was mesmerizing what with Ian Anderson standing on one leg like a flamingo while playing the flute.  We highly recommend this CD to all fans of British rock-and-roll and you can get in on the ground floor by visiting whatever site you do for the absolute best in rock music.
