I've voted for Broadsword & The Beast. I'm familiar with almost all of their albums, and realise that there are many candidates that most fans would place well above B&TB.

B&TB was the first Tull album I had, and I've always loved it's mix of Folk & Rock which doesn't come across as Folk Rock, if that makes sense.


"Pussy Willow,
Down Fur-Lined Avenue"

Indeed...

I voted for "Heavy Horses". It was an LP that was in heavy rotation among my friends and I for a while during our high school years.

Heavy Horses for me. Incidentally, my late father's favourite album in my collection. Crest of a Knave and Broadsword also very good but HH has the edge over them.
