Very good, but not quite a must for Tull fans.
(4 out of 5 stars)
"As an longtime J Tull fan, my avidity dropped off after Passion Play. So most songs selected for inclusion on this CD are those I'm hearing the first time. Don't be fooled by the first song's title; it is only a minute of Minstrel and the rest a full dose of Mary. But it's a GREAT Mary! I only wish the band would have included a full version of that classic song. The rest of the CD is an excellent mix of softs and louds, showing off Martin's lead guitar talent at every turn, as he is apt to do when uncaged from the studio. Ian's voice is solid. On a very positive note, this CD is very well recorded, not your listening from afar, condensed, tomato can version (like their 'Bursting Out' CD.) Part of the magic of seeing Ian et al in a live show is his presence and the band's ability to shift tempo away from the studio delivery. The latter comes across well on this recording, especially on A New Day Yesterday. This one's not a must, but it's still very good. Still waiting for a live release of the single To Cry You A Song."
