Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Jethro Tull released its follow-up effort on July 25, 1969, the incredible “Stand Up.” The band was moving away, albeit slowly, from the blues-rock sound to the one that would make them unique in the world of music. Founding member, guitarist Mick Abrams left to form Blodwyn Pig, so Martin Barre arrived to perform the guitar duties. Along with leader Ian Anderson (guitars, vocals, flute, keyboards), remained Glenn Cornick (bass and harmonica), and Clive Bunker (drums). Although still playing a fiery brand of blues-rock, they began to incorporate more English musical sensibilities in their acoustic pieces, which makes this album a fine one to purchase and to add to one’s collection. Please, look for this stellar album wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music. We believe you will pleased that you do so seek it out now. Thank you.
