The Long & Short Of It.

Tull, that is.

I came across an article the other day that caught me by surprise. Even though I have been a fan of the band, Jethro Tull for over 40 years, I don’t recall hearing (even though I have the album) a song called “Grace”

It is a short poem, put to music and is 39 seconds long.  It is the shortest duration song by the band.

At the other extreme is a tune I know well. . .  Thick As A Brick, which is 45 minutes and takes up two sides of a vinyl LP. It is the longest duration song by the band.

Here is an abbreviated, live version from 1978.

Trivia for the sake of knowing things few other do.

Musical genius, for those that take the time to listen carefully.
