A beautiful copy of a rare Jethro Tull LP.

Background: Released in 1974, War Child was the seventh studio album by Jethro Tull.

The album reached #2 on the U.S. charts and #14 in the UK. gave War Child this review:

War Child was Jethro Tull’s first album after two chart-toppers, Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, and was one of those records that was a hit the day it was announced (it was certified platinum based on pre-orders, the last Tull album to earn platinum record status). …”Skating Away on the Thin Ice of a New Day” is a beautiful, largely acoustic number that was popular in concert, but “Bungle in the Jungle,” with a title that went over well, got most of the radio play. “The Third Hoorah” is really a follow-up to “War Child,” and opens with one of the prettiest progressions on a folk tune in Tull’s repertory, with some lovely harpsichord from John Evan evolving into a powerful rock number with a surprising orchestral break and what has to be the most successful appearance of bagpipes in a mainstream rock song.
