Released as a single off their album "War Child" in 1974, this song showcases Jethro Tull's masterful arranging skills and stands out as their definitive works. Starting out as a solo vocal over a folk guitar progression, the song goes on to build into a lush production, making use of all sorts of instrumentation, from flutes to glockenspiels.
