    ''This Was'' is one of my favorite Tull albums. You need to pick it up.

    That is next in line Flower, I remember the first time I played that song I was like..."What is all that??", but after playing it a few times it grew on me really fast. No surprise you would post that song out of his vast repertoire...:D

    I love the Tull. One of the best bands of the 70s and 80s.

    The next studio album and the 11th of Tull's discography was 1977's "Heavy Horses". This was part of the "Folk Trilogy" that reflected the pastoral lifestyle Ian Anderson was living at the time. He was happily married and living on his farm and all the rustic old folk influences are prevalent on SFTW and HH, and the next album as well.

    I consider this part of their library to be the equal of any of the earlier or later works, and I was fortunate enough to see the tour the year HH was released.(I would even have to admit they are my favorite albums.):D

    Brilliant album LG, my older brother turned me onto it. Some pearler tunes throughout, infact I don't think there's a dud one...:grinthumb

    ^^^The Folk edged three that you speak of LG are never far from my player and for me they along with Aqualung are the cream of Tull's output ... but that's just IMO.
