War Child is the seventh studio album by Jethro Tull, released in October 1974. It was released almost a year and a half after the release of A Passion Play. The turmoil over criticism of the previous album surrounded the production of War Child, which obliged the band to do press conferences and explain their plans for the future.

2. “Queen and Country” 3:00
3. “Ladies” 3:17
4. “Back-Door Angels” 5:30
5. “Sealion” 3:37
6. “Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day” 4:09

Aqualung is the fourth studio album by the rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1971. It is regarded, despite the band’s disagreement, as a concept album featuring a central theme of “the distinction between religion and God”. The album’s “dour musings on faith and religion” have marked it as “one of the most cerebral albums ever to reach millions of rock listeners”. Aqualung’s success signalled a turning point in the band’s career, which went on to become a major radio and touring act.

Recorded at Island Records’ studio in London, it was their first album with John Evan as a full-time member, their first with new bassist Jeffrey Hammond, and last album featuring Clive Bunker on drums. Something of a departure from the band’s previous work, the album features more acoustic material than previous releases; and—inspired by photographs of homeless people on the Thames Embankment taken by singer Ian Anderson’s wife Jennie—contains a number of recurring themes, addressing religion along with Anderson’s own personal experiences.

Aqualung has sold more than seven million units worldwide, and is thus Jethro Tull’s best-selling album. The album was generally well-received critically and has been included on several music magazine best-of lists. The album spawned two singles, “Hymn 43” and “Locomotive Breath”.

1. “Aqualung” 6:34
2. “Cross-Eyed Mary” 4:06
3. “Cheap Day Return” 1:21

1. “My God” 7:08
2. “Hymn 43” 3:14
3. “Slipstream” 1:13

Tonight @ 10pm on RadioMaxMusic.com it is another episode of The LP Lounge. What we’ve done is, rather than a true needle drop, we’ve used the unreleased Q4 reels, encoded them for QS and are playing both, in their entirety. Personally I prefer the resulting mixes to the the SACD and SQ releases – but that’s just me – why not listen in, and tell us what you think?

Tuesday 12am: LP Lounge with Willie B Featuring Pink Floyd

Tonight at 10 – sit back, relax, have a cigar, we’ll supply the Money – you (us and them) just have to Breathe. It’s 3 complete LPs – by Pink Floyd. They feature mixes you won’t find in the digital domain. We’ve taken the liberty of adding bits of the 1973 hit song “Money” in 5 of its key forms – Roger Waters original acoustic “demo”, the original stereo mix, before it was completed – and the actual release version as it appeared on the stereo LP, – later in the show we offer up a mix that was available in Germany, Australia and a few other countries (but not the US) – that one mixed using the SQ quadraphonic system. Finally (well not finally, actually in the middle of the show) we play the full DSOTH LP mixed using the QS system, as available to the Japanese market.

Atom Heart Mother kicks off the show and we wrap with Wish You Were Hear (those two mixed in SQ) – and fear not – I only talk in-between LPs – those we play in their entirety. So it’s Pink Floyd x 3 x 4 – wow!
