    I noticed that the two covers in the OP were both CTI releases, so I figured the same guy did both. But I looked it up, and both the photography and design credits are different between the two...

    Mark Powell is credited with "Conception, tape research, compilation and co-ordination," so I would assume he made those decisions.

    Yes, that guitar solo was their set opener on the '75 tour (segueing into "Wind Up") until they introduced the song itself.

    Mine too; my top three Tulls have always been Passion Play, Thick as a Brick, and Minstrel, in that order.

    Yeah, I can't hear that either. There is that heavy bit that comes after the instrumental break, but even that I would struggle to compare to Zep.

    And at least the ProjeKcts Box and Space Groove sets are things many of us already have on CD anyway--that's why they weren't originally planned for inclusion at all.

    I've always loved the way they incorporated the traditional "Toss the Feathers" (which I already knew from the Fairport version) into "Sword of Light"--it's glorious when that part comes in.
