"Ring Out Solstice Bells"

Originally on Jethro Tull's "Songs From The Wood" LP, "Ring Out Solstice Bells" was later repackaged on a off-beat but remarkable Christmas record. Tull, maybe one of the few rock groups of the time or any time, that sleigh bells wouldn't sound out of place on non-Christmas tunes, without irony. They were the first major fusion band, bridging folk music with acid rock. It is the greatest oversight of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that this pivotal band is not included.
