“Jethro Tull was formed in 1968 out of the remains of The John Evans Band. This Was is the name of the first record that Jethro Tull recorded in Chelsea, London in 1968. Back then Jethro Tull was pretty much a 12-bar blues band and also was the only record guitarist Mick Abrahams played on because he left the band that same year to be replaced by permanent guitarist Martin Barre. Ian Anderson is the vocalist, flutist, as well as many other instruments for this album and would go on to be the only original member that would stay in the band. Bassist Glenn Cornick would go on to play for the bands next two albums after this and drummer Clive Bunker went on for a few as well.
As I sat down to listen to this album I found it very accessible and easy to listen to. It is generally a mellow relaxing album and starts out with one of the standout tracks on the album, My Sunday Feeling which has some groovy blues music to it and some nice flute from Ian. The entire album feels like one whole song to me most of the time and I can listen to it straight through feeling like I have only listened to one song. The guitar and bass is wonderful on here with some nice blues lines on both instruments, especially evident on Some Day the Sun Won’t Shine For YouBeggar’s Farm has a classic blues guitar line as well to it, which is probably well known by many people, but no one knows who it is done by”.

Dave ‘Clem’ Clempson played a role in all three groups.

Bakerloo were originally formed as the Bakerloo Blues Line in 1967, at the outset of the blues boom spearheaded by Cream. A power trio similar to the latter outfit, they also incorporated some of the artier elements of pop music from that period — Dave “Clem” Clempson played solid, bluesy lead guitar, but he also doubled on harpsichord and piano as well as providing the mouth harp, while Terry Poole played bass and Keith Baker played drums.  They released a heavy album in 1969.

They made all the right moves as a performing outfit, courtesy of their manager, Jim Simpson (who also handled Black Sabbath, known as Earth at the time) — he organized a U.K. tour, dubbed “Big Bear Folly” (which later became the title of a Bakerloo song) which had Bakerloo, Earth, Locomotive, and Tea and Symphony playing throughout the country.

Clempson left to join Colosseum in 1969, the year of their album ‘Valentine Suite’ .
He also helped out Tea & Symphony on their album ‘An Asylum For The Musically Insane’ (1969).
Gus Dudgeon produced Bakerloo’s and Tea and Symphoy’s albums, which were both released on Harvest.
