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

Pictures #0001-1495


Jethro Tull returned with their third effort, “Benefit,” on April 20, 1970.  Although critics dismiss this album as ‘dull and uninviting,’ we say, “They’re full of fecal matter as this is a phenomenal album.”  From start to finish the album rocks in the uniquely Jethro Tull way.  With a somewhat different lineup of Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Glenn Cornick (bass and keyboards), and Clive Bunker (drums), they were joined by eventual member John Evan (keyboards), and Dee Palmer (orchestral arrangements).  The album in our view ranks as one of their best and was the set-up for what was to come next- “Aqualung.”  We hope you will seek this album out and consider making it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Look for it now.
