3 stars The first Tull album I encountered. Therefore it holds some kind of significance in my mind, but in overall (when know knowing a bulk of Jethro albums), it is far too sub-par. It is fully packed album and even like that, it has some 13 minutes of music missing because of editing. Double album would be in order if you ask me, but this album, as it is, still can offer something to a newbie. Indeed, because it offered me fine look into this world of folkie bluesy music lead by flute madman with a vision. The most painful edited song (of these three) is a Heavy Horses one, almost all the good parts simply gone, vanished. What a shock was when I then heard the song on a studio album release! But anyway, most of these songs are likeable and cover wide variety of JT eras. Of course, there ain't song from the most Prog hailed ones though, but that's to be expected in such album.

3(-) and good starting point, believe it or not. Because this sparked my interest in the band.
