Blodwyn Pig - 1969 - Ahead Rings Out

Blodwyn Pig were a British blues–rock group founded by guitarist–vocalist–songwriter Mick Abrahams, after he left Jethro Tull in 1968 due to a falling-out with Tull leader Ian Anderson. Abrahams' falling-out with Anderson was said to have originated in differences between the two on original material —Abrahams wishing to stay close to Jethro Tull's blues and jazz roots, Anderson wishing to develop less overt blues and jazz material— and Abrahams' unwillingness to work seven days a week. He left Jethro Tull after their debut album, This Was, was released, and formed Blodwyn Pig with Jack Lancaster (saxophone), Andy Pyle (bass guitar), and Ron Berg (drums); future Yes and Flash guitarist Peter Banks became one of several guitarists to succeed Abrahams after he left to form his own band for a time. Ahead Rings Out was the debut album by Blodwyn Pig, released in 1969, and sales of Ahead Rings Out rivalled those of Jethro Tull's next album, Stand Up, reaching No. 9 on the British album chart. The album contained a healthy mixture of various styles of progressive blues and "The Modern Alchemist" displayed the jazz influence and saxophone skills of Jack Lancaster. In liner notes for the 2001 re-issue of the album, songwriter and singer Mick Abrahams recalled: "The producer was Andy Johns (little brother to Glyn Johns of Rolling Stones production fame). I think the tape operator was Robin Black, who later went on to produce Jethro Tull and other notable acts of the time.
