This has become one of my favorite Jethro Tull songs. Maybe because it hasn't been as overplayed as many of their songs are. But it also is just a good song.

BTW, Ian Anderson now owns and operates a very successful salmon farming operation. If you're anywhere in the UK or the Continent eating smoked salmon, it very well may have come from his company. 

 
Off topic, but I just looked at your RP profile &

Same thoughts here to. This came way before. Jethro Tull 1969, Eagles 1976

 
Ian Anderson in an interview declared that the Eagles toured with Jethro Tull when they were playing this song, and he imagines that it has been an inspiration for Hotel California, either subconsciously or not. He also added that the Eagles made a much better song (I disagree with him on this point)!

It really is an inspirational song. All about remembering where you came from and being happy with the way things are going. I love it.

An unexpected kiss. A break of sun on a cloudy day. A $20 dollar bill sitting alone on the street in front of you. A letter from a long lost friend. 

This nugget from JT.

All brilliant gifts that force a smile. Thanks, Bill!

Came to this brilliant album later in life. One of my favourite tunes to strum on a winters eve. Maybe Bill will slip 'Look Into The Sun' into the playlist if we're lucky.

The HBO show Vinyl has not been kind to Tull.

Wonder if Mick Jagger has a bone to pick with Ian....
