War Child is the seventh studio album by Jethro Tull, released in October 1974. It was released almost a year and a half after the release of A Passion Play. The turmoil over criticism of the previous album surrounded the production of War Child, which obliged the band to do press conferences and explain their plans for the future. The band began recording songs for the album on 7 December 1973, starting with "Ladies"
Jethro tull, studio albums, 1974. Following the ambitious long-form diversions of Thick As A Brick and A Passion Play, 1974’s Warchild saw a return to short, sharp songwriting. Fans intrigued by the appearance of WarChild Waltz on the 2002 reissue of WarChild will finally get the chance to hear the rest of the mostly orchestral music the band recorded for the soundtrack album. About 30 minutes was recorded during sessions in 1973 and 1974. Soon after, the music was consigned to the archives for 40 years – until now.

Only 6 left in stock (more on the way). Temporarily out of stock. The orchestra version was intended to be used in a movie by Ian Anderson that never materialized. The DVDs include . remasters of the WarChild album and some archive video footage. It's packaged with a hardback 20 page book with archive photos of the band during the WarChild sessions in 1974. A great addition for all Jethro tull fans. 4 people found this helpful.

Warchild" was one powerful musical statement that stands on solid ground today as one of JETHRO TULL's greatest works. I find it amazing that they were able to regroup and come up with such a consistent album after the phenomenal "Passion Play". Do your self a favor and check out these remasters, they are unbelievable.
