ONE OF THE FIRST 8 TRACKS I BOUGHT . I THAN BOUGHT IT ON RECORD, AFTER THAT IT WAS A CASSETTE. LATER I PURCHASED BENEFIT ON A CD. NOW I PURCHASED THIS CLASSIC FROM CD UNIVERSE WITH THE DIGITALLY REMASTERING AND IT SOUNDS GREAT.. I ALSO LIKE THE BONUS CUTS . BENEFIT IS WHAT DEFINES TULL AS A ONE OF A KIND BAND THAT HAS STOOD THE TEST OF TIME. 5 STARS,

||A staple from my favorite all timers|
This has perennially been on my favorites list since it's release in 1970. I still have the old vinyl lp and original cover. One of my favorite traits on this collection is the haunting flute-giggling Anderson does on "With You There To Help Me". Others may choose "Thick As A Brick" or "AquaLung" as a favorite album, but this one just touches a musical response of me. I love it. Always have, always will.

DONT LET PEOPLE FOOL YOU ON THIS ONE. NOT A GOOD REMASTER. WITH YOU THERE TO HELP ME. I HAD TO TURN THE VOLUME UP. LOW FREQUENCY. NOTHING TO SAY SOUNDED LIKE IT WAS RECORDED FROM A ALBUM THAT WAS WARPED AND THE FINAL TEACHER SOUNDED TO RUFF. SO THAT LEAD ME TO ANOTHER REMASTER MADE IN CANADA. BETTER IMPROVEMENT. EXCEPT TEACHER. NOT AS RUFF. BUT STILL NEEDED IMPROVED. THE JAPAN MINI LP WAS EVEN BETTER IMPROVEMENT THAN THE CANADA RELEASE. EVERY DETAIL OF SONGS CAME OUT AS I NOT HEARD ON THE CANADA VERSION. EVEN TEACHER IMPROVED. NOT RUFF AT ALL. EXCEPT THE VOLUME WAS NOT MATCHED WITH THE OTHER SONGS. SO I HAD TO TURN IT UP A COUPLE OF NOTCHES.

||Subtle Rock Classic from early Tull|
On Benefit, Tull found their mature rock sound typified by 'Teacher' which mocks gurus (not Jesus), and conformity to social group pressures. Lyrically complex and sonically rich, especially the acoustic songs like Son. Sheer sparkling beauty and joy in the acoustic numbers like Inside and Singing All Day-- required listening for any Tull lover. Then there's the angry rockers-- classics like Teacher, Nothing To Say & To Cry you a song. And check out how Play In Time shows Tull starting to evolve towards the progressive epic rock styles of Thick as a Brick. If you like Teacher or Tull, this is an essential CD to have.

||Classic Tull album|
I really think this is one of the great classics of Rock&Roll history.I know everybody thinks "AQUALUNG"is the better album,but not me!!!This really doesn't have any rockers like "AQUALUNG",so that may be part of the reason.The song that I have a problem with is "TEACHER",which kind of blasphemes Jesus,if I'm understanding it right.I don't know if I should get the remaster with bonus tracks,because in my experience,some albums aren't improved by the remastering process.Every song is first rate,so you won't feel you wasted your money.
