This Was is the debut studio album by the British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1968. Recorded at a cost of £1200, it is the only Jethro Tull album with guitarist Mick Abrahams, who was a major influence for the sound and music style of the band's first songs. When the album was released the band was already performing at the Marquee Club in London, where other successful British groups, such as the Rolling Stones and The Who, had started their careers.

Jethro Tull was initially a strange kind of blues band. Their first line-up included Mick Abrahams, Glenn Cornick, Clive Bunker, and Ian Anderson. Shop this was on burning shed. The debut album hit in the British charts, partly thanks to great airplay from BBC Radio DJ John Peel. In June 1968, just before this album was recorded, Jethro Tull began a residency at London’s famed Marquee Club (where the ‘Stones and The Who also launched their careers). Band advisers failed to get Ian to give up the flute and let Mick do all the singing. The album was recorded without any record company contract presuming, correctly, that a deal could be made afterwards. Tull began their first US tour in January 1969, immediately after securing the services of guitarist Martin Barre.

Original album and bonus tracks remixed by Steven Wilson in . DTS and AC3. – Dolby Digital surround and 96/24 LPCM stereo. Flat transfer of the 1968 stereo remix. Presented in a case-bound DVD book filled with an extensive history of the album, track-by-track annotations by Ian Anderson, plus rare and unseen photographs.

The first Jethro Tull album I bought was " Living in the Past . .Every song better than than the one before  . While "This Was" is far from Jethro Tull's most developed or defining album, it is a very enjoyable introduction to the bands curious juxtapostion of flute against the standard rock band configuration. The material is deeper rooted in the blues forms that had a toe hold on most of the Brit rockers with mid/late 60's born-on-dates (think Cream) - However, the genre-fusing that continued to serve Tull very well into the new millennium was already in gear with tinges of jazz sweating through the muscular blues progressions the band vigorously fleshed.

After several name changes, Jethro Tull played their first show under that name in February 1968. Months later, Ian Anderson, Mick Abrahams, Glenn Cornick and Clive Bunker released the band’s debut. The album debuted at on the . albums chart, and rose to in the . Listen to Dharma for One from the original album. Recorded during the summer of 1968, This Was is the only Jethro Tull album to feature guitarist Mick Abrahams, who left the group shortly after the album came out to form Blodwyn Pig. The title of the album refers to the band moving away from its early blues-based sound, which was referenced in the original liner notes: This was how we were playing then-but things change-don’t they? The album includes songs that have been in and out of Jethro Tull’s live show for 50 years, like My Sunday Feeling and Beggar’s Farm.

A is the 13th studio album by Jethro Tull. It was released on 29 August 1980 in the UK and 1 September of the same year in the United States. The album was recorded in the summer of 1980 using Maison Rouge Mobile and Maison Rouge Studios in Fulham, London. Eddie Jobson guested on the album, playing keyboards and electric violin. The album was produced by Ian Anderson and Robin Black.

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.
