 Jethro Tull was one of the truly innovative rock bands to emerge from the late 1960s. At their peak the idiosyncratic group, fronted by multi-instrumentalist Ian Anderson, resembled a troupe of roving English minstrels. Crafting a signature progressive rock sound that resisted easy categorization, they were often derided by critics as too British, too eccentric, too theatrical. Over the span of a decade, Tull released a string of sublime albums featuring intricate compositions in a wide range of musical styles, with little regard for the showbiz maxim “give the public what it wants.” Focusing on the years 1968–1980, this history includes insider accounts based on exclusive interviews with key members and rare photographs from Ian Anderson’s personal collection.

It's nearly impossible to discuss the history of rock music without praising the monumental quality, impact, variety, and boldness of Britain's Jethro Tull. Named after an eighteenth-century agriculturalist - and not after their striking frontman Ian Anderson - the group almost immediately became one of the most ambitious, and significant acts in two subsections of the genre: progressive rock and folk rock. Officially formed in 1967, mastermind Anderson and company initially forged a blues course before veering in a more diverse, and expansive direction. Their early 1970s period - which is often considered their peak-took them close to progressive rock via iconic album cuts like 'Aqualung' and lengthy narrative suites like Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play. The band spent the latter half of that decade modulating within those trademark flavours, ultimately finishing the '70s with what they referred to as the 'Folk Rock Trilogy' (Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses, and Stormwatch). Like numerous peers at the time (ELP, Rush, Yes, and King Crimson, to varying degrees), Tull then embraced the more commercially accessible demands of the 1980s- complete with a fair share of both synthesisers and hard rock. Moving album by album, this book will examine the behind-the-scenes circumstances and motivations for each release via a track-by-track analysis to acutely observe why Jethro Tull were - and always will be - of invaluable benefit to rock music.

Containing numerous rare and previously unpublished pictures, this is easily the biggest Jethro Tull book in the world - a splendid large format illustrated book featuring color photographs. It is truly indispensable for every fan, including as it does Didi Zill's personal memories of his encounters with the band and of his photo sessions with them, as well as informative and eye-opening texts by Hermann Buchner on the band's history. JETHRO TULL was established in 1967 in the context of the British Blues Revival and reached the heights of fame during the 70s. Their song Locomotive Breath is famous to this day, even to people who don't really know the band. Their incomparable sound was created by the transverse flute of band leader and master mind Ian Anderson and by his characteristic, slightly nasal vibrato singing. Art Rock in the early 70s would have been much less intriguing without their poetical lyrics and their diversified compositions adding up to an musical complexity unheard of before in rock music. JETHRO TULL is a band that continues to inspire in live concerts, despite countless replacements. It is first and foremost the aura and class of the great musician Ian Anderson that can be held credited for the permanent devotion of their fans. In the course of his long career, Didi Zill met the musicians of Jethro Tull a number of times, and of course he always took his fine camera along. Their first photo session took place in 1969 in Los Angeles, some time before the band was famous. During their tours of the 70s (1972, 1973, 1976) Didi was around for some extensive documentation. In 1984, he was invited to do a home story. And of course, he had to be there for the Comeback Tour in 1987. All this adds up to this generous and luxurious illustrated coffee-table book, a revelation for every fan of the band. It contains lots of previously unpublished photographs and also some rare live situations such as the Offenburg concert in 1972 und the Buckinghamshire concert in 1984.

The Legendary Jethro Tull - How many rock bands from the sixties can you name that are still around today? Probably not that many. There are a couple — the Rolling Stones, Santana-but most have broken up, stopped recording, and reappear only for the ubiquitous 'reunion' tours. Jethro Tull is one band that formed in 1968 and are still going strong, thanks to the leadership, vision, and extraordinary talent of its leader, Ian Anderson. Named after the 17th Century inventor of the seed drill, Jethro Tull have always been controversial, challenging, and completely impossible to categorize. Are they rock? Blues? 'Progressive'? English folk? These labels merely begin to describe Jethro Tull's eclectic and imaginative music. Author Raymond Benson looks at this legendary rock band and analyzes their place in pop music history. He examines every Jethro Tull album—track listing, personnel, cover art, recording history, and content. A handy rating system informs Tull newbies where to start and provides longtime fans with fodder for debate. A book for both the casual and hard-core fan, Jethro Tull is an insightful companion to enhance one's listening pleasure.
