Now Playing : Salvation A-La-Mode, and a Cup of Tea

The encroaching shades of gray skies and the bite of chilly mornings means one thing: It’s time for Tull. As I’ve referenced in an earlier post about seasonal music, when the winter lies ahead, and as the journey into this chilly phase of the year begins, an ideal choice of music so befitting the time between Halloween and the thaw of spring is Jethro Tull. There’s something about their sound, and the use of woodwinds and lyrical imagery, that just fits this time of year.

  1. I agree. It’s the ‘politically honest, eyes-wide-open, happy-anyway’ attidude that makes this minstrel and his musical thespians so delightful. Some of the early work can be rather ponderous, wandering and quite deep… but ultimately also quite trying. Pretty much everything starting with Thick As A Brick is on my regular rotation.
