Tull's second album - the first without Mick Abrahams - was to some degree a move away from the blues / rock flavour of some of the tracks on their first album, This Was.
As with This Was, there is a large variety of styles including an indulgence into the classics via an interpretation of Bach's Bourée.
The cover was based on ideas from band member Terry Ellis and John Williams (a friend?) and
printed from woodcuts by New York graphic artist Jimmy Grashow.
