Select three Tull albums you think demonstrate the greatest audio engineering accomplishment from Tull and their studio recording teams over the years.
Some things to listen for: 1) clear overall definition and separation of instruments/vocals in the mix 2) rich tonal quality throughout 3) excellent balance of volume with instruments/vocals; everything's available to the ear, things aren't smothered out by instrument volume oversight in the mixing stage 4) use of reverb or sound effects handled expertly 5) no excess compression noticeable; sounds naturally spacious, all considered 6) disregard tape hiss on albums, as that was often a technological limit that Tull would have no control over.

The overall sound of Crest of a Knave is triumphant compared to the previous three studio releases. Also, it sounds better than Roll With It, by Stevie Winwood (who won the grammy for Best Engineered Recording). I suspect it's because Winwood is much more appreciated and socially accepted than Tull. Instead of giving them the best heavy metal performance, they could have given the best engineered recording, instead.
So as you push off from the shore, Won't you turn your head once more And make your peace with everyone? For those who choose to stay, Will live just one more day To do the things they should have done. And as you cross the wilderness, Spinning in your emptiness: You feel you have to...pray.
rredmond: Orion is good stuff.

Catqualung: jackinthegreen, as far as I know the book box set of Benefit is still due to be realized, but it has not appeared yet, as well that of Broadsword and the Beast, they should be the next in the row

theothertull: Didn't know if I should laugh or cry, pathetic or what, "I played with Paul McCartney; well like a demo, no one has ever heard it, but it's big Japan. Can't remember if Paul was in the studio at the time of the demo, but ya mate, John, Paul, Ringo and I."

steelmonkey: Spring has sprung in California...or, at least, here in the land of two seasons, 'not rainy season' has begun.
