Jethro Tull - Aqualung 2011 Steven Wilson Remix 180g Vinyl LP

Jethro Tull Aqualung 2011 Steven Wilson Remix 180g Vinyl LP

 

1971 saw the release of some of the greatest pop/rock albums of all time: Imagine, Pearl, Sticky Fingers, Whos Next, Tupelo Honey, Surfs Up, Fragile, Led Zeppelin's IV, Muswell Hillbillies, Tapestry, Whats Going On? and both Madman Across the Water and Tumbleweed Connection are just some of the iconic titles that hit the stores that year. Add Aqualung and thats quite an output for a twelve month span.

 

Generally considered the pinnacle of the bands recorded output, front-man Ian Andersons songwriting was quickly evolving from British folk-blues roots and helping define prog-rock. While definitely pushing the envelope for the era in taking on the subjects of God and organized religion, it was guitarist Martin Barre who was establishing equal ground with Andersons flute as an instrumental voice of the band.

 

Joining Tull after Toni Iommi (Black Sabbath) who himself had replaced original guitarist Mick Abrahams (Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams Band) departed after only a few days, both Barres opening riffs and lead breaks became indelibly imprinted to generations of classic rock.

 

Songs such as "My God", "Hymn 43", "Locomotive Breath", "Cross-Eyed Mary", "Wind Up" and of course the title track "Aqualung" became FM radio staples and are in-demand concert favorites to this day.
