B39697 – Jethro Tull 1973 Autographed Passion Play Drawing (UK)


A large drawing of various Jethro Tull album covers and a head shot of Ian Anderson and that has been each autographed by the group.  Ian Anderson, John Evan, Martin Barre and Barriemore Barlow and Hammond Hammond have each signed in black pen.  Ian anderson has also added the inscription ‘Hello Frank, Best Wishes, It’ll soon be Christmas’ above his signature.

The autographs come with a photocopy of a letter from Frank Brasenell, the fan that drew the picture that reads as follows:

‘In 1973 Jethro Tull brought out their new album Passion Play, which I bought, me being a Jethro Tull fan, but the music critics panned the album and Ian Anderson and the band said “we have had enough of the record media panning and running us down and so we are thinking of quitting”, so I thought I will have to show that we the bands fans still wanted them to carry on playing the music that we loved. I did two pencil sketches, one of Ian Anderson and some of the albums surrounding his face, the second one was cartoons of Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, John Evan, Jeffrey Hammond and Barriemore Barlow. The third one was a pen sketch of all of the band and a picturegraph of the album Passion Play, I sent all of the sketches off to Chrysalis Records and asked them if they could get all the members of Jethro Tull to autograph them and send them back to me, which they very kindly did, along with a few remarks as well’.

The picture measures 41.5cm x 30cm (16.5 inches x 11.75 inches). There is a tape stain around the edge of the picture. The condition is very good.
