Tull Tuesday #2

Ian Anderson

“Once again, it’s harking back to that sort of era of farm life. It’s more social realism. In this song, I’m talking about the time when American farming, in particular, was under a huge amount of pressure and threat due to the building of roads. The economy of everything was becoming much harder, not only for American farmers but farmers pretty much everywhere. To me, it seemed like a good opportunity to write about an interesting subject. It just had to be set in America, rather than Europe; it’s not Farm on the Autobahn.”

-Ian Anderson on “Farm on the Freeway”

Here is the studio version from the 1987 album, Grammy Award winning Crest of a Knave.  The audio quality of the studio version is so much better than any of the live videos, but if you prefer to watch, here is the video.

Living between Aiken & Nashville, TN, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.
