New at Jethro Tull Press

The always amazing Jethro Tull Press site (home to countless vintage photos and press clippings related to all things Tull) has a few nice new additions up including a bunch of new photos and a pair of Melody Maker articles.

Excerpt from a fairly awful review of Heavy Horses in the Melody Maker of 15 April 1978...

Jethro Tull: Heavy Horses (Chrysalis CHR 1175)

A long-time fan of Jethro Tull, I have recently become concerned by Ian Anderson's gradual decline. I'm painfully forced to compare Tull to an ageing dog: lots of bark but no bite...

...The music is often quite endearing, but Tull's drabness is starting to frustrate me. Heavy Horses, with its log-fire, boy scout overtures, only compounds the felony.
