This is part of series called “First Five” which features tracks from an artist’s first five albums. I usually exclude the big hits and /or popular songs, but not always. Also I prefer not to include live albums or compilations, but sometimes I do.
Jethro Tull albums featured in this mix:
This Was (1968)
Stand Up (1969)
Thick As A Brick (1972)

The Vagabond Jazz & Blues Show – 14 September 2016
On the 4th of October 2012, at age 53, I started something new in my life, presenting a two-hour blues show on the then brand new internet radio station, All Jazz Radio. Despite my reluctance founder Eric Alan encouraged me to give it a go, and here we are four years later!
As my father said recently; “you are just making mixtapes like you always did when you were a teenager, except now the technology has changed, and you are getting to share your love and passion for music with other people.”
I play an eclectic mix of Jazz & Blues, with a special focus on South African artists.
I call the show “The Vagabond Jazz & Blues Show“ because I wander around the world of music picking up scraps of information from all over and everywhere.
My very first website I created in 1997 was called Vagabond’s World and it is still on the internet.
The Vagabond Jazz & Blues show can be heard every Wednesday between 6pm and 8pm (Central African Time) on All Jazz Radio.
