Reviews

"Tim Smolko's book makes a significant contribution to the literature in popular music studies and musicology. Furthermore, it is an important addition to the available literature on Jethro Tull, which - despite their commercial success and longevity - has not been rewarded as of yet with sustained analytical study." - Kevin Holm-Hudson, author of Genesis and The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway "[R]ather than offering yet another biography, Smolko takes a musicological - as well as a cultural - approach to just two of Tull's albums [...] an endorsement from such a notebale authority [as Adrian Stone-Mason] surely makes this worth reading for those of a scholarly bent." - Rock n' Reel
