To Cry You A Song
A Tribute To Jethro Tull

To Cry You A Song Jethro Tull has been releasing high quality music for almost thirty years. In fact, Tull has been influential for so long that it is easy to forget what made them such a compelling act during the early stages of their career. The band had a profound effect on rock during the late 1960's and '70's due to their use of the flute as a lead instrument and the wild persona Ian Anderson portrayed on stage. During those years Tull was known as a hard rock band ("Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath"). In the early 1970's they were thought of as a progressive rock band ( "Thick As A Brick" and "A Passion Play"). At the end of that decade "Songs From The Wood" and "Heavy Horses" were more folk-oriented. The 1980's saw Tull become more keyboard-oriented and hi-tech in its approach. More recently, "Crest Of A Knave" surprised everybody (especially Metallica) by winning a Grammy for best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Act. And in 1994 Ian Anderson showed incredible musical maturity with his classically-inspired, new age-influenced "Divinities". Tull also contributed a great deal to making the modern concert business what it is today. They were the first group to carry it's own PA system from city to city and make those costs part of the production expenses. They were the first group to carry multi-level staging on the road with them making them memorable for putting on an extravagant live show. Ian Anderson has a style and a vision which he has been able to parlay into a huge army of dedicated fans that has remained loyal for decades. But with all the image, marketing and promotional aspects of the Tull story, one factor should not be dismissed: the songs were great. "To Cry You A Song ...A Collection Of Tull Tales" is made up of some of Jethro Tull's best and most loved songs. The performers that have been gathered together for this album have all been a part of the Tull story as participants or avid fans.
