[size=150][color=orangered]Blodwyn Pig was guitarist Mick Abraham’s response to Ian Anderson’s more pop-friendly inclinations for Jethro Tull, the group they’d both help to found at the start of the blues-based music boom of the mid-60s. 
Leaving Anderson in charge of the soul and future direction of the group, Abraham’s put together a credible if short-lived outfit producing two very good albums that struck a chord with record buyers of the day. 
Blodwyn Pig were a rare example of an off-shoot band whose commercial appeal came close to rivalling that of its parent group; Tull’s Stand Up topped the charts in July ’69, Ahead Rings Out made it to no.9 the following month. 
It was always going to be Abrahams’ beast and unsurprisingly it stuck to the formula expressed on Tull’s debut, This Was. However the secret ingredient that gave them an edge was wind player and multi-instrumentalist, Jack Lancaster. A more assured and robust soloist than Anderson at that point, Lancaster’s playing moved between King Curtis or Coltrane as occasion demanded. The throwaway opener “It’s Only Love” is lifted by his sparkling, punchy horn arrangement, whilst “The Modern Alchemist” enables Lancaster to jazz it up large. 
Featuring exemplary backing from Andy Pyle on bass and drummer Ron Berg, the album sits firmly in the long-coated underground brigade camp that stretched the blues, if not quite to snapping point, then at least into some interesting shapes and occasionally humorous squeezes. “The Change Song”, with its mockney ‘boy done good’ monologue shows the irony of white boys getting rich by singing the blues wasn’t lost on Abrahams.
“Leave It With Me” or “Sing Me A Song I Know” are pure Tull – close your eyes and it could easily be the cock-legged Anderson belting through those changes. Such similarities may help account for Blodwyn Pig’s commercial appeal which was consolidated on tours in both Europe and America ensuring their excellent sequel, Getting To This, charted at No.8 when released in 1970.
