Album Cover Art Wednesday: Ahead Rings Out

You’ll be shocked to learn that I like puns. You’re not? I can never fool you lot. The title of Blodwyn Pig’s 1969 debut LP Ahead Rings Out was, uh, ahead of its time. Not really but I cannot help myself.

Blodwyn Pig was a spin-off band from Jethro Tull. Tull co-founder Mick Abrahams just wanted to play the blues and he did so quite well from head to tail:

    The pig (as pictured on the album cover) has also been the logo for KSHE-95 in St. Louis for eons! Thanks for the history lesson!
