Original Jethro Tull
New from McFarland Publishing, "The Original Jethro Tull - The Glory Years" by Gary Parker.
Fronted by Ian Anderson and populated by an idiosyncratic collection of brilliant musicians who at their peak resembled nothing less than a slightly pixilated troupe of wandering British minstrels, Tull was one of a handful of truly great rock bands to emerge from the late 1960's. With insider accounts based on exclusive interviews with key band members and rare photographs from Ian Anderson's personal collection, "The Original Jethro Tull" by Gary Parker assumes its rightful place as the definitive biography of this extraordinary group.

Los Angeles news anchor Maddy Daniel, to piece together clues

“The place is one long funeral song, a porridge of pitched tents and tumbledown shacks, reeking of rotting trash and human waste.” That opening line from Gary Parker’s The Fourth Order was so sweet I knew I was in trouble—I desperately needed some sleep but this book said nope, keep reading, pal. So I did, and I don’t regret a minute of the lost Z’s. If you like novels that crackle like heat lightning, grab this book and devour it. Yeah, it’s that good.”
