2.07 minutes of aimless sounding noise, not the best way to try and persuade someone to like Frank but a great cover design. The second track is just fine.

More like clear and discerning ears and I included the end bit of Frank in my aimless sounding noise comment.

A band not as good as they thought they were ( save for a couple of singles). Cracking album cover, though

My favourite Mott album - it was downhill from there....

Spot on Chris, never understood what all the fuss was about. If it hadn't been for Bowie they would have tanked early on.

Like what...?

Rock and Roll Queen/Backsliding Fearlessly and Midnight Lady. Maybe

Please don't say: All the Young Dudes or All the Way from Memphis....

BUT if he'd have stayed with Tull, what would they have sounded like? Can't imagine Mick playing "Thick as a brick" or Ian playing a dying blues scene. If the second Blodwn Pig album is anything to go by, I think he'd prefer busking

Thge second album was nowhere near as good as the first, clearly they had a limited life expectancy but from the very first Tull album between IA and MA it was very clear who had the songwriting ability. Nevertheless, This Was remains a Tull favourite of mine, particularly the jazzy element of it as well as the blues and it was very different from all the other blues band records at the time.

Having a BOC session. Mirrors is an ugly duckling album in the catalogue, as it veered away from hard rock towards pop and a much softer sound. But much of it is well-crafted.

One of Michael Moorcock's collaborations with the band is a highlight. As is Allen Lanier's ode to his then-ladyfriend Patti Smith 'In Thee'.
