Jethro Tull - Thick Is A Brick (1972) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Jethro Tull - Thick Is A Brick (1972) (Remaster Edit 1999)

Jethro Tull's first LP-length epic is a masterpiece in the annals of progressive rock, and one of the few works of its kind that still holds up decades later. Mixing hard rock and English folk music with classical influences, set to stream-of-consciousness lyrics so dense with imagery that one might spend weeks pondering their meaning -- assuming one feels the need to do so -- the group created a dazzling tour de force, at once playful, profound, and challenging, without overwhelming the listener. The original LP was the best-sounding, best-engineered record Tull had ever released, easily capturing the shifting dynamics between the soft all-acoustic passages and the electric rock crescendos surrounding them...Bruce Eder

Looking forward to hearing this, as I only have the old vinyl.
However, it is password protected, and I cannot find mention of a password anywhere yet. Several guesses have all been unsuccessful.
Can you help, please?
Thanks.

Awesome example of what these guys could do back in the 70s. One of their best.
My CD is skipping parts and making an annoying hissing sound (it's been a long time now...). Time for replacement.
Thanx for this gem. Much appreciated.
