Weekly Vinyl – Jethro Tull

I picked this album up in Ukraine in 1989. I bought a few albums there – whatever was available.
I’m not sure if this was a legal licensed copy or a pure rip-off, Things were hazy back then, the Soviet Empire was fading and things were a little crazy.
It states that it is manufactured under licence but so does every pirated cassette that I bought as well. I still have a whole box of these lying around. I should get around to listening to them as well.
There was very little vinyl to be had so I bought what I could. I like Jethro Tull and this is not a bad “Best Of” album.
I checked up on the internet and this is just a repressing of their Original Masters disk that was released in 1985.It has Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, Living in the Past, Thick as a Brick and other hits covering their career from 1969 to 1977.
This is a nice curiosity in my record collection.
