None of Jethro Tull 's progressive rock tendencies or classical influences followed Mick Abrahams into his creation of Blodwyn Pigeven with the inclusion Jack Lancaster 's sax- and flute-playing prowess. Instead, Abrahams built up a sturdy British blues-rock sound and used Lancaster 's horn work to add some fire to the band's jazzy repertoire. Ahead Rings Out is a stellar concoction of gritty yet flamboyant blues-rock tunes and open-ended jazz centered around Dear Jill - Blodwyn Pig - Ahead Rings Out Abrahams ' cool-handed guitar playing, but it's the nonstop infusion of the other styles that En Tu Mondo - The Tremeloes - Live In Cabaret the album such a solid listen.
After only one album with Jethro TullAbrahams left to form this band, and it's evident that he had a lot of pent-up energy inside him when he recorded each of the album's tracks. With a barrage of electrifying rhythms and fleeting saxophone and woodwind excursions, cuts like "Sing Me a Song That I Know," "Up and Coming," and "Backwash" whip up highly energetic sprees of rock and blues.
Most of the tracks have a hearty shot of rock up the middle, but in cuts like "The Change Song" and "Backwash," the explosive riffs are accompanied by a big band style of enthusiasm, adding even more depth to the material.
Petroglyph - Amir Baghiri & Brannan Lane - Lucid Circles Pyle 's bass playing is definitely distinct throughout each track and is used for anything but a steady background, while labeling Ron Berg 's drumming as freewheeling and intemperate would be an understatement.
It's apparent that Blodwyn Pig 's style is indeed distinct, releasing a liberated and devil-may-care intensity while still managing to stay on track, but the fact that each cut convokes a different type of instrumental spiritedness is where the album really gains its reputation.
Wonderfully busy and even a tad motley in some places, Ahead Rings Out shows off the power and vitality that can be channeled by combining a number of classic styles without sounding pretentious or overly inflated. A year later, Blodwyn Pig recorded Getting to This before Dear Jill - Blodwyn Pig - Ahead Rings Out left the band, and although it's a solid effort, it falls just a smidgen short of Ahead Rings Out 's bluesy dynamism.
