    In 1972 Jethro Tull released a parody concept album Thick As A Brick. . Concepta albums were all the rage back then and this one features a single track 43 minutes long. Due to the limits of the LP format it is split into two parts.
    The album opens up to become a 12 page newspaper, later versions left out the fold out newspaper. There are several articles about Gerald "Little Milton" Bostock, a review of the album and articles about some sort non-rabbit and many others of a full feature newspaper. It is a bit like the National Lampoon Sunday Newspaper.
    Gerald Bostock was an 8 year old child genius who wrote the lyrics for the album and is also a fictional character. Ian Anderson actually wrote the lyrics as usual for a Jethro Tull album.
    Don't let your kids fill out the connect the dots puzzle. I haven't checked the crossword puzzle yet. May not be rated G.

      Another incredible Jethro Tull album!! Now, where is the creativeness in album covers today? After the '70s it seemed to go away completely.

      You have the best toys!

      Saw this tour in support of this album. They played the whole thing, start to finish, plus a lot more (Aqualung, etc). As I recall, after playing Thick as a Brick for 45 minutes, Ian Anderson ambled over to the microphone and said, "For our next number..." Simply an amazing show. Weirdly, the Eagles were the opening act...

      Thank you very much Scott. Not much album art in the 80s and extinct by the 90s.

      Thank you very much Brunswick/Thomas. Did you you get Bungle on CD to replace it?

      Thank you very kindly Belltown. I saw the A tour concert. Not the best album but quite the concert with Eddie Jobson on keyboards and see through violin.
