Thick As A Brick

LP (Item 528315) Reprise, 1972 — Condition: Very Good-
Gatefold
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
Jethro Tull's classic prog album–or is it a parody of a prog album? The LP-length "song", filled with dense lyrics, alternates between hard rock, English folk, and classical.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Tan label pressing in the gatefold newspaper cover, with aging, light surface & edge wear.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Jethro Tull

Benefit
Chrysalis/Reprise, 1970. Near Mint-
An early gem from Jethro Tull – and a set that has the group really reaching forth with some of their more complicated, jazz-based musical impulses – while still holding onto some of the rawer power of the early days too! The album's lesser-known than some of the group's earlier hits ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stand Up
Reprise, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Beautiful early work from Jethro Tull – a formative set that really has the group deepening both their themes and their music! There's still a bit of blues rock at the core – but also some richer, more lyrical modes too – and Ian Anderson does a perfect job of bridging both ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jethro Tull

Aqualung
Chrysalis/Reprise, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
The album that really broke Jethro Tull out of the prog rock underground and into the mainstream – and a set that showed that the group weren't just a combo with creative use of flute, but a band that could really rock off their ass when they wanted to! Previous records were all pretty great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Uncle Meat
Reprise/Bizarre, 1969. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An amazing movie in sound – supposedly music (and more) that was going to be used in a film project, issued to the public while Zappa was trying to raise money for production! The album's one of the most tripped-out studio efforts to date from the group – loads of overdubbing, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
