Jethro Tull in the Studio

Steve Turner, Beat Instrumental, February 1971

SOMEWHERE IN London stands a black-painted church building with its innards ripped out and carefully replaced with all that modern interior decorating can offer. Inside this sinister abode lies the womb of Island records — its recording studios. Somewhere inside Studio One the week before Christmas were Jethro Tull, and somewhere in their various heads lay an unborn LP.

Total word count of piece: 1828
