Jethro Tull: Weathercock

Between 1977 and 1979 Jethro Tull produced three albums with a strong folk influence: Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses and Stormwatch.

They became steadily darker, imbued with a sense of impending ecological catastrophe - in those days we worried about a new ice age and the oil running out rather than global warming.

This is the closing track from Heavy Horses. Perhaps it sounds a little twee today, but it is hard not to like.

Those were the days! My last 'drool over' period was when Bellowhead appeared on the scene.
