The Caravan is wonderful. However, put an acoustic guitar in Ian Anderson's hands and you probably have my vote by default.

Tough choice indeed- I like almost all the Caravan I've heard and am much more hit and miss with Tull, but that is one of the best Tull tunes ever.

I may change my mind but for now I'm going B.

Tough choice but the Caravan just edges it.

It was raining when we drove up the two-lane highway through the long tunnel of trees that led into the black district on the south end of St. Martinville.

Bleedin' 'ell yes!

The toughest round yet.

Both are in my DNA - the wonderful Caravan track featured in my winning list of the first ever Prog Cup.

Jethro Tull - the greatest band that ever walked the planet are my brothers

Both tracks are of equal beauty - both tracks make me so happy inside.

Both delightful and full of music

This is almost impossible - I am not going to abstain

Bugger, bugger, bugger, bugger.......

2 bona fide classics from the same era, both nicely pastoral.... what to pick?

It's a narrow margin, but I'll go for the melodious and warm voice of Richard Sinclair.

It's kinda depressing for a music forum to be proud of not knowing musicians.

in my opinion, the only way to fairly vote here is to play one then the other then the one then the other then the first again and then the second and then back to the first with a revisit to the second etcetcetcetc.

only then may a proper scientific choice be made.

Near perfection both of them. A today, I'm feeling middle class and home counties. (Is Kent a home county? Maybe not.)

This thread should go into 'classic threads'

Anybody that knows anything about prog/progressive/prog corner knows that this is the tightest round that could EVER exist

I'll contact the mods when the match closes.
