Blodwyn Pig were formed by former Jethro Tull member Mick Abrahams in the late-60s. Their sound and imaginative songs were influenced by that of Jethro Tull, with the exploration of jazz, blues and prog enabled by their use of bass, drums, sax and flute! Some of their songs had a similar sound to Jethro Tull but with a somewhat lighter sound, and more imaginative material, but mostly they were had a blues-rock sound, intertwined with jazz elements.

Why would they package it in with a bunch of heavy batteries though?
He threw it over the fence. Could have broke the DVD case!
Update: There seems to be a bit of controversy surrounding this recording. Only the "Five Live Yardbirds" CD has more permutations for a debut band recording than "Ahead Rings Out". The above review is for the BGOCD54 disc. This recording lists 8 selections on the back tray insert. The front product booklet generally reproduces the original UK liner notes, including listing 9 selections. Selection number 8 being "Backwash" (3:39), but it actually runs about 0:41.
So, two weeks ago I find a used copy of "Ahead Rings Out" in an independent, bricks and mortar "record shop". [N.B., I actually owned one of these emporiums in the pre-CD days of the early 1980s.] For those of you who have not experienced this "blast from the past", a record shop is the equivalent of a crack house for music fanatics who also are addicted to the artifact (i.e., physical cd) and find the digital, ephemeral versions just not satisfying. And what to my wondering eyes do I see, but an EMI CD of "Ahead Rings Out". This iteration lists 9 selections for the original release, but deletes "Backwash" and substitutes "See My Way". So why did I buy another copy of basically the same recording? Well, it was for "See My Way" and the 7 Bonus Tracks [N.B., the last of the BTs is the aforementioned "Backwash"].
Does any of this change my original review? Short answer, NO. Either iteration is still killer and my head is still ringing out. FYI: The new used CD set me back about $1.065 per new selection. Not an onerous price to pay for entertainment for what is left of my lifetime.

I expected the original lineup when I purchased this CD.
Now I'll have to go looking for all the songs that are missing...
