C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Jethro Tull

"Skating Away" is yet another great tune in Jethro Tull's repertoire. Released as a single off their album "War Child" in 1974, this song showcases Jethro Tull's masterful arranging skills and stands out as their definitive works. Starting out as a solo vocal over a folk guitar progression, the song goes on to build into a lush production, making use of all sorts of instrumentation, from flutes to glockenspiels. This piece is a must-listen for any Jethro Tull fan and is definitely recommended for anyone who is new to their material and might be interested in it.

Know any good folk-rock songs?
