My first and last time with you
And we had some fun.
Went walking through the trees, yeah!
And then I kissed you once.
Oh I want to see you soon
But I wonder how.
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now.

Spent a long time looking
For a game to play.
My luck should be so bad now
To turn out this way.
Oh I had to leave today
Just when I thought I'd found you.
It was a new day yesterday
But it's an old day now.

Loving all the old Tull showing up lately, especially this album. A gem from college days . . .

I love a lot of Tull's music throughout the years.  But I have to admit, I still think their best albums were Benefit, Aqualung and this one!

 
Those are all great, but I like Living in the Past the best.

I never noticed it before but he sure does sound like Dudley Doright with that singing voice.
 

 
LOL, good one

agree, I think first of all it's because of rather agressive rhythm section (Clive Bunker and Glen Cornick were definitely the disciples of Cream and Jimi)
 
. . . With a bit of John Mayall thrown in for good measure . . .

Amazing, how heavy Jethro Tull's rock was back in the day! This was a PARTY staple back in E-school... We liked the Cream sound; fairly evident, even with the way Ian sings in this — a la 'White Room,' and the bass & guitar reminded us of 'The Warning,' by Black Sabbath: "I was born without you baby, but my FEELINGS were a LITTLE BIT TOO STRONG...just a LITTLE BIT TOO STRONG..."

Stand Up (The Elevated Edition)(2CD/DVD)
Just came out rerelease from 1969.  Great album.  Way more blues then later albums.

Interesting, but frankly Tull can do better.

I must second that!{#Cheers}

 
I agree that it was a great album, but it really cannot be compared to the other Tull albums. Mick Abrahams played on This Was before he left to form Blodwyn Pig. He had a major influence on the blues rock sound of This Was that didn't continue after he left.

Boom! What a HEAVY track!

I need to explore more JT, evidently!


slipping into the 'heavy-hard-rock' area but not to far, sounds good

{#Naughty} How old are you to think this was Hendrix and Cream. As soon as it comes on you know its Tull
