During an interview with Brave Words in 2015, Ian Anderson selected Stand Up as his favorite Tull album: "I suppose if you were to really twist my arm, I would probably go back to 1969, with the Stand Up album, because that was my first album of really original music. It has a special place in my heart." Barre and Bunker have also ranked it as being among their favorite Tull albums.
The folks playing on this album were Ian Anderson – vocals, flute, acoustic guitar, Hammond organ, piano, mandolin, balalaika, mouth organ, production, Martin Barre – electric guitar, additional flute, Glenn Cornick – bass guitar & Clive Bunker – drums, percussion.
It was the 1st Tull album to feature guitarist Martin Barre, who would go on to become the band's guitarist until its initial dissolution in 2012. Before recording sessions for the album began, the band's original guitarist Mick Abrahams departed as a result of musical differences with frontman and primary songwriter Ian Anderson.
