Ο τίλος του προηγούμενου track οδηγεί συνειρμκά σε ένα heavy duty live στιγμιότυπο από τα πρώτα χρόνια των Jethro Tull, με τον Clive Bunker στα ντραμς, η τέχνη του οποίου αναδεικνύεται εδώ πυροτεχνηματικώ τω τρόπω. Το αυτό και για τον οργανίστα John Evan.
Το κομμάτι, εμπλουτισμένο με στίχους διπλάσιο σε διάρκεια, απέχει παρασάγγας από την original βερσιόν του This Was.

The title of the previous track leads associatively to a heavy duty live snapshot from the early years of Jethro Tull, with Clive Bunker on drums, whose art is highlighted here by fireworks. The same goes for keyboard player John Evan.
The song, enriched with lyrics, double in duration, is a far cry from the original version of This Was.


❝ Dharma, seek and you will find
Truth within your mind, Dharma.
Dharma, each to his own we seek,
Together we’ll and our stream, Dharma.
Truth is like freedom, it doesn’t believe
Being true to yourself,
Never think that you’re free.
Dharma will come eventually.
Dharma, Dharma, Dharma. ❞


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the music!
