Jethro Tull Stand Up

Stand Up is the second album by Jethro Tull. Prior to this album, the band's original guitarist Mick Abrahams had left the band due to musical differences with Ian Anderson. Abrahams wanted to stay with the blues-rock sound of This Was, while Anderson wished to branch out into other musical forms.

2. "Jeffrey Goes to Leicester Square" – 2:12

7. "Fat Man" – 2:52
8. "We Used to Know" – 3:59
