Nothing Is Easy
Jethro Tull
Stand Up (1969)

Here's a great song from Jethro Tull's second album.  Jethro Tull has constantly been evolving over their 40+ years in existence, many of their albums being totally different genres from eachother.  This song reflects how a lot of their early work was very blues-rocky, as you can hear from the guitar here.  Later they would go to play more of a folk style, then electric synth style, and so on until today.  But the one thing that has remained totally constant is the flute playing of lead singer Ian Anderson, which is one every single album, and allows the music to maintain a consistent folky-progressive feel to it no matter the genre.
