This is one of my all time favs, not a stinker on it. Actually Carry On My Wayward Son is my least favorite, but still excellent. My original pressing has survived the years well. I was skeptical when we cued it up at Mikes place and was pleasantly surprised.
PS I was plopping mustard pancakes into my Pampers when Nursery Cryme came out. It wasn't until I was older in the late 80s that I discovered this music. And it has stuck with me ever since. Someone also mentioned Seconds Out early in the thread... So good. I had a friend who was a talented percussionist and we used to blast Seconds Out in his room while his parents were gone with him playing along on drums (to a tee) with me singing (horrifically) with max echo. Ah, the memories.
