JETHRO TULL: 'Sunshine Day' (MGM)
Jethro was originally the man who invented the seed drill.
This Mr Tull, misnamed on the label as Jethro Toe, is going down a storm with his group in London clubs with an unusual sound and approach.
While not a hit, this West Coast flavoured tune will break the recording ice.
