J is for Jethro Tull (and Jingle Bells)

Thursday, 8 December 2011

No, not that Jethro Tull, the English agricultural pioneer who helped bring about the British Agricultural Revolution, perfecting the horse-drawn seed drill in 1701.

This Jethro Tull!

Jethro Tull might not be the first name that springs to mind when people ask "So which is your favourite Christmas pop song?" but Solstice Bells from 1976 is suitably festive and much maligned.

Anyway, if you've not heard it before you can enjoy it here now.

For another festive Jethro Tull track, follow this link.

And while we're on the subject of the letter J, here's Jingle Bells sung as you've never heard it before...
