    Jethro Tull Part Two

    A Passion Play (July 1973)


    War Child (October 1974)


    Minstrel in the Gallery (September 1975)


    Too Old to Rock and Roll Too Young to Die (April 1976)


    All from Spotify, and all rather disappointing. Each of these has its moments, but none are great. None compare well to the Stand Up, Aqualung and Thick as a Brick. One more part to come, probably tomorrow.

    Misleading to say 'essential' as this covers the years 1946-49 only. Damn fine stuff, though - and the sound isn't too bad for its time. Not that I'd complain even if it was - I like my acoustic blues to crackle and pop as it makes it sound more eerie, as if the singer is communicating from beyond the grave.

    Happily this collection doesn't appear to be one of those iffy 'copyright control' releases either, although I admit I did buy a clutch of those in the past without realising the implications.

    Sublime music from the talented Finnish band. If you like winds, acoustic piano, and Fender Rhodes, give this a listen.

    I would have to majorly disagree with you. Passion Play and Minstrel - five stars, the others, four. But I’m a fan!

    While this doesn't sound like Mozart and Beethoven, nor Stravinsky or Britten, it is classical music and belongs in the classical music current listening thread. I really like Piazolla, fantastic. He took composition lessons from Nadia Boulanger.

    We all have our likes and dislikes. I can't say I disliked these albums, but I didn't like them too much. I'm like that with a lot of music, I don't really dislike much music. Except Bread, posted recently, I really dislike Bread.

    Especially white Bread! But it was popular on the soft rock stations. I love side two of Warchild. That would be starting off with Skating Away... The title track from Minstrel is a high point. Also Baker St Muse. Some of the other tunes I can take or leave. Same with most of Too Old...

    I was undecided where to post that record. I too would consider it classical, but felt others may disagree and did not wish to violate some protocol of the forum.
