Simply put, this is one of Tull's finest efforts. It marked the departure of Mick Abrahams and the arrival of Martin Barre to the band and signalled Tull's move away from a blues outfit to the quirky, progressive rock force they would become. And even though this was just their second album, it remains among their best and contains a number of standards including "A New Day Yesterday," "Bouree," "We Used to Know," "Fat Man," and "For a Tousand Mothers." The additional bonus tracks make this classic that much better.
The two things which stand out most on this album are Martin Barre's guitar work and Ian Anderson's personal, yet still somehow timeless lyrics. For the former, the best tracks are probably "A New Day Yesterday" and "For A Thousand Mothers," both of which are still Tull concert staples, as is the Bach cover "Bouree." "Nothing is Easy" is another great song with some catchy licks and is a nice tune to listen to at the end of a long work week with an ice cold beer in your hand.
So let's put it this way, if I were stuck on a desert island with a handful of CDs, this would be one of them. And I own EVERY Tull album, including the solo efforts of Ian Anderson and Martin Barre. So enjoy.

This is a stand out album from Tull as they were finding thier own path and leaving the more bluesy material behind.I originally bought this after hearing Living in the past/Driving song (thier first single that got big) being played all the time on jukeboxes in amusment arcades throughout the summer of 1969. I bought the album in the autumn of '69 when it was released and it was never off the record player. A bonus was the original cover which had a pop up Tull when it was opened up. All the tunes written by Ian Anderson, Bouree a standout instrumental which showcases his flute skills. Look into the sun a nice relaxing acoustic song, Nothiing is easy has a nice walking bass line, and We used to know which uses the same chord structure as the Eagles, Hotel California.All in all a great album nice to hear it again without the dust in the grooves. Well worth buying

As a fan of jethro tull I cannot rave enough about this album . All of the songs are a joy to hear! Having owned the original vinyl,re-release and previous CD version of this album then I do not feel hard done by for shelving out for this again.The song's now sound fresher -definately benefiting from the remastering- just listen to this cd with head phones! I would like to have seen the packaging a little better but this is only a minor quibble.

The replacement of Mick Abrahams with Martin Barre enabled Tull to play a much wider range of music, and they didn't waste any time in doing so. The only blues track is the opener 'A new day yesterday', a nice link with "This was". Lighter acoustic numbers 'Jeffrey goes to Leicester square' and 'Fat man' mix with the harder rock of 'Nothing is easy' and 'For a thousand mothers'. 'Reasons for waiting' is the first example of orchestral backing in the Tull catalogue, while the instrumental 'Bouree' is the only track not written by IA, though the jazzed up version here is not exactly what mr Bach had in mind, some nice flutework and excellent bass have made this a favourite number (both studio and live). 'Back to the family' is a softer rock number, while 'Look into the sun' and 'We used to know' are both mid tempo numbers employing a mix of acoustic and electric guitarwork, the latter building up to include some fine wah-wah, and is my personal favourite Tull number.
Soon to celebrate its 40th birthday, but it still sounds fresh, no need for the philosan.

The addition of 'Living in the past' and 'Sweet dreams', plus their respective b-sides as bonus tracks, cover just about everything from that period of their development.

A well balanced album that was responsible for Tull's rise to fame, and for anyone who hasn't heard them before, this is the best place to start.

Stand Up was literally the point in musical history when Ian Anderson stood up as Jethro Tull's leader after the departure of rival Mick Abrahams. Every song is written by Anderson and the stand out playing is by him - flute, mandolin, balalaika, harmonica and acoustic guitar. The album, recorded around 1969, contains classic Tull tracks still featured in the set - Nothing Is Easy, Bouree, New Day Yesterday and the variety of arrangement and playing show Anderson's amazing virtuosity. There are some rough edges and a slight lack of homogeneity(?) because of this but there's no denying the power and passion. Barre's brilliant lead guitar work and the wonderfully tonal bass playing of Cornick are well to the fore. Not to mention the trademark breathless gasping and moaning on his flute. Tull here still showing blues influences but mainly it is heavy (progressive) rock and lighter acoustic ballads. A must have for Tull fans.

'Aqualung' is usually feted as the all-time classic Tull album. However, if you're just starting out with Tull, start here.
While 'Aqualung' is dark, cerelbral and slightly preachy, 'Stand Up' is straight-forward joy, a wide-ranging collection of masterpieces from psychedelic pop ('Jeffry Goes To Leicester Square'), classical-progressive ('Bouree'), rock ('A New Day Yesterday', 'For A Thousand Mothers') pretty ballads ('Look Into The Sun', 'Reasons For Waiting') all the way to silly hippy ditties ('Fat Man'). An amazing record.
