Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Jethro Tull: Ian Anderson (vocals, guitar, mandolin, flute); Martin Barre (guitar); John Evan (piano, organ); David Palmer (portative pipe organ, keyboards); John Glascock (bass); Barriemore Barlow (drums).
  • Additional personnel: Darryl Way (violin).
  • Recorded at Maison Rouge Studio, Fullham, London in January 1978.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • HEAVY HORSES brings together the best elements of Jethro Tull's sonic arsenal: heavy guitars, intricate, evolving song structures, folk tendencies, and Ian Anderson's inimitable growl. The album opens with the bouncy "And the Mouse Police Never Sleeps," a fairy tale-like song about the adventures of a group of forest animals. "Acres Wild" features a disco-esque groove held down by funky drums and bass.
  • The album's out-and-out highlight is the nearly eight-minute "No Lullaby," a song that undergoes the sort of musical metamorphoses present in Tull's best material. Another exceptional effort is the multi-textured title track, a song written as a tribute to the farm horses in England (which, at the time of the album's release, were declining in number). HEAVY HORSES is one of the band's most heartfelt efforts.
