    Very good UK pressing. Doesn't sound boxy (as the Norwegian ones). Ian is mixed dry in the middle. SFX are 3D-like. Acoustic guitars, flutes etc. are clear flat and sounds nice. The stereo image is wide. I found a mint copy, and if you do the same, pick it up. These records are decent priced at thrift stores.

      I have just purchased the CD from Amazon UK. The barcode is 724354157127 but the matrix and run out codes are not the same as those listed in the 2002 release, the disc reads A965813-01 manufactured by optimal media production. The rear cover of this one also shows the Chrysalis logo on the rear cover and not the EMI logo as in the version listed here. Is this a new version or a new variant? The last time I added a new version of a CD I appeared to offend someone and they removed it! What should I do?

        One of the Giants in the British prog-rock, especially popular at the beginning of the 1970s. The Group was founded in 1968 in Blackpool by the Scottish singer/flautist Ian Anderson. The group, by her fans affectionately known as ' Tull ", fell on the solid influences from English and Celtic folk music. Also, when prog-rock Jethro Tull remains less popular, a welcome guest on the international stage. Not least because of the strong live shows with Anderson as Trump, who often flute plays standing on one leg. In 1990 the Group surprised friend and foe by a Grammy Award for best heavy metal act ' to win, at the expense of Metallica. Jethro Tull reacts with the for their characteristic humor on the ensuing consternation. They place in an English magazine a full-page ad with the text: ' The flute is a (heavy) metal instrument '.
