180g Vinyl Re-issue Of 1968 Debut Album!

"This Was" is the 1968 debut album from the group Jethro Tull now reissued on 180g vinyl with original gatefold sleeve and audio cut from 2008 stereo mix.

Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, North of London. With a common love of Blues and an appreciation, between them, of various other music forms, they started to win over a small but enthusiastic audience in the various pubs and clubs of Southern England. The breakthrough came when they were offered the Thursday night residency at London's famous Marquee Club in Wardour Street, Soho.

"...From the opening number to the last track, the LP is full of excitement and emotion. It starts off with "My Sunday Feeling" and has Ian Anderson on flute and vocal and a fine solo from guitarist Mick Abrahams. Ian alternates between flute and harmonica on the LP and comes across very well on these instruments and, of course, his stirring vocals... Go out and buy this record, then you will see why it entered our charts at 23 in the first week. Thoroughly recommended." - Melody Maker, November 2, 1968
