JETHRO TULL - New book, "Life is a Long Song: A Compendium of Jethro Tull in 33 1/3" Scheduled in September

Wymer Publishing has announced the September 15 publication of the new book Life Is A Long Song: A Compendium Of Jethro Tull In 33 1/3.

Description: “A light-hearted look at the famous flute-driven rock band Jethro Tull. It is written for Tull fans and obsessives everywhere. It is also written for those who may have always known the band, had a passing interest and now want to to find out more in a light-hearted, serious way.

The book takes 33 Tull songs from the band’s chronological output and looks at them in some detail both musically and lyrically, but also tries to look at the songs from a more obtuse, strange, sideways angle.

Each chapter is a musical journey through the song, but it also looks at what was happening to and around the band members at that moment. Some of the dramatic and sad moments involving members of the band are explored. There is also time to recognize the musician’s intrinsic and fantastic contributions to the musical world of Jethro Tull over fifty-six years.

In the spirit of deliberate, blatant subjectivity, the book rates each song out of ten so that a worst-to-best list can be compiled by the end of the book. This should cause a lot of discussion and disagreement and be a fun topic of conversation for readers, fans, and nerdy types alike.

Pre-order here.
