JETHRO TULL "war child" cd,1974. #14 UK, #2 US, #9 AU.

a recent convert to all things Ian anderson & Co, and loving almost every minute of it....
this another i bought some time ago,thanks to recommendation from Jerome-Esquire!
this one varies slightly from the the other albums i now own, due simply to the fact that most of these tracks  are relatively short by Tull's standards, most clocking in at just over 4 minutes...
this was originally concieved to be the soundtrack to a movie to be written by Tull, and based around the tracks herewithin.
Anderson had got the actors together,the director and additional script writers and took the idea to Hollywood, apparently the movie moguls wanted him to use American actors, scrpitwriters and also demanded he seek out a competant well known US director, as Anderson puts it in the linnear notes in the cd....he told them to 'shove it',went back to England and gave up on the idea because he wanted to do it his way.
album also contains seven additional tracks that recorded for the album but due to the constraints of vinyl albums they were left in his vaults until he remastered this album!

One of my go to songs ! A beautiful and emotional song from the greatest female rocker because she writes songs and actually plays her Fender !





Chrissie playing her glittering Fender..a real female rocker and not just a solo singer !

Magnificent album - recording quality is absolutely superb. And the hardest hitting lyrics I have ever heard. https://youtu.be/mYZWz8OgfeY

Spine-chilling stuff.
