Jethro Tull- Songs from the Wood 45th anniversary- Ian Anderson

Realize that "Songs from the Wood" by Jethro Tull, released way back in February 1977, was already the English folk/progressive rockers' tenth album! There was nothing that sounded remotely like the ancient pastoral songs and instrumentation on "Songs from the Wood"  then on the all-important American rock radio. Ian Anderson is my guest In the Studio  on "Songs from the Wood" 's forty-fifth anniversary.

Jethro Tull- Minstrel in the Gallery- Ian Anderson

Jethro Tull- War Child- Ian Anderson

In the years 1969-74 and "War Child", there was no band in the world more exciting, more unconventional, and more successful than Jethro Tull. Ian Anderson is my guest.
