I carry a book/music wish list in my wallet and while shopping yesterday came across a CD I’d wanted for a long time- ‘Ahead Rings Out’ by Blodwyn Pig. Led by Mick Abrahams, the guitarist for the first Jethro Tull album, who parted ways with Ian Anderson and headed deep into the blues/jazz area Jethro Tull initially dabbled in but abandoned in favor of whatever Ian had in mind. Blodwyn Pig put out just two albums and along with the first album by the group Colosseum(alumni of John Mayall) have a “sound” that wasn’t too common in that age of psychedelia but I find enjoyable today.
