The Ballad of Jethro Tull (Paperback)

The Ballad of Jethro Tull (Paperback)

The Official Illustrated Oral History

Jethro Tull

The first official, illustrated, oral history of prog rock legends Jethro Tull, The Ballad of Jethro Tull is illustrated throughout with previously unseen, personal and classic photographs and memorabilia. Tull’s story is told by Ian Anderson, band members past and present and the people who helped them to become one of the most successful bands in rock history.

Each copy comes with a download of ‘The Ballad of Jethro Tull’, a specially-written spoken word telling of the Tull story performed by Ian over classic Tull track backing, plus a recording of Ian reading ‘Marmion’ with specially created musical backing. The recordings are only available with this book.

Press reviews

Lavishly tooled oral history … deftly corralled … a rollicking and ridiculous immersion.
