4 stars This LP is one of those classic early compilations that you just have to love. With it's beautiful booklet, 12 pages of magnificent early photos of the band, and two LP gatefold with it's hardback like cover, it's a treasure. ' It contains all of those excellent early singles Tull had released in the last four years, as well as a selection of their best tracks from their official studio albums. Side three has two live tracks, from Carnegie Hall 1970. These are extremely well performed (Tull were a great live band up until 1980!) with decent quality. No weak tracks here, just a very well rounded, beautiful package.

Although if you are CD inclined, just about every unreleased track that was featured here is included with the remasters of each album, I can still give it no less than 4 stars for it's historical value. Try to track down an LP version if possible.

OGTL | 4/5 |
