|From: Heavy Horses; Year: 1978; Genre: Progressive Rock|
This rather excellent/interesting piece of prog/rock is one of the heavier songs featured on their '78 Heavy Horses album, which is one of my absolute favourites from the band. It also clocks in at just under eight minutes, oddly enough that still makes it only the second longest track on the record.
This one is by far more driven by both Martin Barre's excellent, blazing guitar work and John Glascock's driving and intricate bass line. I also believe that this is one of the few 'Tull songs to feature Ian Anderson playing an electric guitar instead of his normal acoustic one on the studio version.
