180 Gram Vinyl Record
40th Anniversary Edition remixed to stereo by Steven Wilson
180-gram vinyl comes with booklet explaining the album and the band
The 1974 album, War Child, was the seventh studio album from the group Jethro Tull. Originally intended as an accompanying album to the movie of the same name, the War Child album was reinstated as a 10-song rock album after failed attempts to find a major movie studio to finance the film.
Formed in 1967, the British rock group Jethro Tull were a unique phenomenon in popular music history with a mix of hard rock, folk melodies, blues licks, and impossibly dense lyrics. Led by Ian Anderson, the group has also included members such as Martin Barre, Doane Perry, and Dave Pegg. The group has been described by Rolling Stone magazine as "one of the most commercially successful and eccentric progressive rock bands."
"'Ladies,' ... is one of Tull's folk-based pieces, and one of the prettiest songs on the record, beautifully sung and benefiting from some of Anderson's best flute playing to date. The band is very tight but doesn't really get to show its stuff until 'Back-Door Angels,' after which the album picks up. "Sealion" is one of Anderson's pseudo-philosophical musings on life, mixing full-out electric playing and restrained orchestral backing in a manner that recalls Thick as a Brick. 'Skating Away on the Thin Ice of a New Day' is a beautiful, largely acoustic number that was popular in concert, but 'Bungle in the Jungle,' with a title that went over well, got most of the radio play. 'The Third Hoorah' is really a follow-up to 'War Child,' and opens with one of the prettiest progressions on a folk tune in Tull's repertory, with some lovely harpsichord from John Evan evolving into a powerful rock number with a surprising orchestral break and what has to be the most successful appearance of bagpipes in a mainstream rock song." — AllMusic
