Guitarist Mick Abrahams was one of a legion of young British musicians who would be introduced to the blues and heavily influenced by Alexis Korner's seminal Blues Incorporated band. Abrahams joined his first outfit, the Crusaders, with pianist Graham Waller in 1964, the band pursuing a British rhythm and blues sound not unlike Korner's. The guitarist would run through a number of similar bands before landing in McGregory's Engine with bassist Andy Pyle and drummer Clive Bunker.

Sometime during the summer of 1967, Abrahams met Ian Anderson and Glenn Cornick of a band called the John Evan Smash. Sharing an enthusiasm for blues music, the four men – Anderson, Abrahams, Cornick, and Bunker – formed the band Jethro Tull. This Was, Tull's 1968 debut album, was a stunning blend of British blues and rock that featured an unusual dynamic created by the clashing of Anderson's vocals and jazzy fluteplay and Abrahams' wiry fretwork, which was often compared favorably to Eric Clapton. Although the critically-acclaimed album would find a modicum of commercial success, tension within the band over a future musical direction would result in Abrahams leaving Tull to play the blues.
