Songs from the Wood - Jethro Tull [1977]

...More a case of folky window dressing in a prog rock shop-front. But, all in all, one of the best ever Tull albums...

Let me bring you all things refined:
Galliards and lute songs served in chilling ale.
Greetings, well met fellow, hail!
I am the wind to fill your sail.
I am the cross to take your nail:
      A singer of these ageless times - 
      With kitchen prose, and gutter rhymes.

Never got into Tull before for no particular reason, this seems like a good place to start. Thanks!
