Well, it’s mid September and the weather is starting to get cooler and before you know it there will be scarecrows, pumpkins, and cardboard cutouts of bountiful cornucopias everywhere.

Jethro Tull – Bursting Out

Published on July 26, 2010 By Music Mook

Speaking of Tull… Ok, there is good news and bad news. The bad news is that for some extremely inexplicable reason Ian Anderson, flautist, vocalist, and acoustic guitarist of Jethro Tull, decided not to record or issue an official live album of the group during their early heyday.
