Editor's note: this is like a b-side compilation of Jethro Tull songs without flute, drugs, and modern groupies. The Olde English lyrics almost make this a foreign record and I can barely understand any of the lyrics. The music is fairly dry and boring but that's to be expected with the lack of instrumentation that we are used to hearing in modern times.
