Some US listeners may find this version a little off-putting as it is true to the original release in Tull's home nation (UK).
The 3rd track on this re-issue is "Alive and well and living in" (as per the UK release). "Teacher" (the 3rd track on the US release) was never a favourite of Ian Anderson's but can be found as a bonus track. That said, it's not the same version as on the US vinyl. To quote from Tull's site "The UK version [of "Teacher"] on the remastered copy is a very different arrangement with far less flute. The flute was added to the US release as the record company felt Tull needed a pop single featuring the flute."
This was the first unashamedly Ian Anderson album. "Songs written by Ian Anderson" says it all....
(The UK version was released in May 1970, one month after the US version.)
