50 years of tunes - 1969 - Jethro Tull "Stand Up"

Tull are one of my favourite bands. They're a little different from the rest of the seventies prog crowd and have a sound that is very much their own. Stand Up is Tull's second album, their first with long term guitar player Martin Barre and the moment they really began to leave their Progressive Blues origins behind and began to really find their feet.
