|From: Minstrel in the Galley (remaster); Year: 1974/75; Genre: Progressive Rock/20th Century classical|
The was a rarer gem that most have probably not heard; it was apparently written and performed/recorded by the band for a dance group called Pan's People, but was eventually released on an EP as an extra track. Later, of course, it was added to the remaster of Minstrel in the Gallery as a bonus track.
The song is definitely classical in almost all respects with Ian Anderson's style. The strings and other orchestral talent make this a great little buried treasure for the music connoisseur.
