  • I love Tull's jazz asthetics. This song is really tricky to play on bass, Glenn Cornick was something else.
  • This was one of my favorite melodies in the early 1970ies
  • I am living in the past with all of this ear candy!
  • another flute orientated group- was flock- worth a try
  • Always had a JT cassette handy in the car when try to pick up Hippie chicks at the Jersey shore.
  • Glenn Cornick, original Jethro Tull bassist, dies aged 67 - R.I.P Glenn!
  • Indeed.
  • Flutastic!
  • It's one of my favourite's too. Takes me back to the 70's.
