  2. Congratulations Tim. Two awesome albums that I purchased when they were released from a record store in Athens across from the downtown Varsity (which is now Five Guys.

    Thick As A Brick was a unique concept and Ian Anderson was one of the more talented artists of a time when there were a lot.
