Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)
ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
The next ‘Jethro Tull’ album to come out was “A,” which hit record store shelves on September 01, 1980. Undisputed leader of Jethro Tull- Ian Anderson- meant this album to be a SOLO effort but record companies being what they are, said, ‘whoa, hold on there, we want this to be the next Jethro Tull album and thus it was. The band featured Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Dave Pegg (bass- Fairport Convention) and Mark Craney (drums and percussion). Ian Anderson said he never meant to replace the lineup of musicians from the earlier years but since this was a SOLO album and since the record company said it ‘must be a Jethro Tull album,’ the classic lineup was out the door and gone- even though some of them such as Barriemore Barlow were going to leave anyway due to changes in musical direction. Ah, well, it is what it is, please seek it out and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.
