Jethro Tull - Stockholm, Sweden, 1969

This is Jethro Tull live in concert at Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden, on January 9th 1969. At this time the band were only around a year old and had not long parted with Mick Abrahams who was replaced by Martin Barre. The change of line up was over musical direction, with Ian Anderson keen on developing the overall band sound and direction, rather than just a blues focus. That said the blues legacy is notable here and the songs quite different to the more definitive styles that would emerge in the coming years. This was just prior the the bands debut tour of the USA, on this occasion they were on the same bill as Jimi Hendrix. Source: Stereo Soundboard (from master reels).
