The album is considered to be the first of a trio of folk rock albums: Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses (1978) and Stormwatch (1979). On the album cover appears an extended title line: Jethro Tull-with kitchen prose, gutter rhymes and divers-Songs from the Wood. The title track of the album contain two of these phrases in its lyrics. The UK music-paper adverts read: Jethro Tull present ‘Songs From The Wood’. A new album of Old Magic. It’s inspired by the thought that perhaps nature isn’t as gentle as we’d like to believe.
The harmonizing on "Songs From the Wood" fulfills the promise shown in some of the singing on Thick as a Brick, and the delicacy of much of the rest, including "Ring Out, Solstice Bells" (where the group plays full out, but with wonderful elegance), "Hunting Girl," and "Velvet Green," set a new standard for the group's sound.
