Thanks!
This was the first album I recall seeing the Chrysalis logo on. Of course it appears on Mick's solo album (SP 4312) and the Procol Harum Live recording (SP 4335). Soon Chrysalis became it's own label, with Procol Harum moving there from A&M, and later Robin Trower solo and Jethro Tull, all of this happening mid-1973. The green label with red logo gave it a Christmas-decoration type look. As you recall, Abrahams played on Tull's first album, THIS WAS, before leaving to establish the Pig and go toward a more jazz/blues orientation.

While I'm not quite much for the music on this AOTW, I DO enjoy playing the Board Game inside the gatefold. :laugh:
