In his first letter to the Christians at the church in Corinth, the Apostle Paul wrote in Chapter 13, verse 11, “When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” If that had been me in March 1971, I would have added this postscript:” And started listening to Jethro Tull‘s new Aqualung  album. Every day.”

Jethro Tull’s leader since their second album, Ian Anderson, joins me here In the Studio  for the story behind “Cross-Eyed Mary”,”Mother Goose”,”Locomotive Breath”,”My God”, “Wond’ring Aloud”,”Hymn #43“, and the iconic title song “Aqualung” the week of March 8 for the essential album’s golden anniversary. –Redbeard
