Stand Up

Very smart clean vinyl, with a name printed in biro on side 2 label housed in a delightful gatefold cover including popup of the band.

Stand Up is the second album by Jethro Tull; it quickly went to number 1 in the UK while a single, "Sweet Dream", rose to number 5.[1]

Before Stand Up, the band's original guitarist Mick Abrahams resigned because of musical differences with Ian Anderson; Abrahams wanted to stay with the blues-rock sound of This Was, while Anderson wished to add other musical influences such as folk rock. The result was an eclectic album with various styles appearing in its songs, yet an album which remained broadly in the blues rock mould, which would be the last such album from Jethro Tull.
