EXCERPT
It was buying your first great-coat that did it. That image of a crazy, probably dangerous individual with unkempt hair, strangely wandering eyes and an inability to keep both feet on the floor at the same time, as seen on Top of the Pops when Jethro Tull and his anonymous backing musicians performed Witch's Promise' in 1970, remains to this day one of the most striking I can recall. And when the great-coat appeared in all its glory clothing Jethro's alter ego on the cover of Aqualung, it was clear to us that we were insiders, that we lived in exactly the same crazy world, that we knew what it was all about', even if we actually hadn't a clue."
