Tonbridge Man
4 stars I still have the audio cassette of this album which I bought off another schoolmate around 1974. Its on its last legs but I gave it a play today after a gap of 10 years or more. What an album! Unlike the greatest hits albums which can seem a little uneven the track sequence of the studio stuff on side one (sides 1 and 2 of the record) is inspired and what incredible quality is revealed in here - literally there is not a duff track to be found. The 1968 -1971 Tull were quite heavy and thats the feel that comes across generally. However some superb melodic/acoustic tracks break the sequence brilliantly.

The live concert stuff on side 2 (3 and 4) of the record is mostly enjoyable but I will admit to not having played it so often! If you wanted one Tull record to cover their early period this would be it! Find it if you can.

Tonbridge Man | 4/5 |
