CD Reviews

Great recording!
David J. Koukol | 06/17/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the greatest live albuns I've ever heard. Tull's on top form, a great repertoire, excellent musicians, a high level of energy. Listen to Martin Allcock,he's the best keyboardist on Tull since Eddie Jobson. Martin Barre is excellent (as always), Dave Pegg carries his duties with brilliance, Doane Perry is a sympathetic drummer (but I'll always remember Barrie Barlow...) and Ian Anderson...Well, he's the greatest rock'n'roll singer of all time! Don't miss this one."
Dynamic and versatile!

"While a lot of live acts feel that energy is far more important than expert musicianship, Jethro Tull has always been a group that, under writer/flutist/acoustic guitarist/singer Ian Anderson, has the guts and the artistry to meld energy with genuinely complex playing. The result is music that stands outside of time: this 1991 concert recording is not tied to a certain time or place musically - it stands outside fads and fashions and that is what makes Jethro Tull so lovable to its fans and, perhaps, bewildering to others. Count me amongst the fans. Listen to the live performance of "Cross-Eyed Mary" (originally written in 1971), followed by the rendition of "This Is Not Love" (a 1991 composition, new when this concert was recorded). They're unique songs, and don't sound dated or at odds in each other's company. And then there's the pastoral folk grandeur of "Heavy Horses," and the hard rock of "Jump Start." Tull can play just about any style (sometimes incorporating different styles into one song and making it work as a cohesive whole). It's a pity the general public and current musicians can't take a cue from these classic entertainers. Long may they continue to play to their enthusiastic audience, and here's to more live albums such as this one so we can preserve the magic!"
Nice Concert CD - Some Song List Details...
Boneman | Los Angeles, CA USA | 12/24/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A Nice Concert CD. The sound quality is excellent for a live recording. It seems like the flute is mixed up front with almost no reverb, compared to the rest of the band. And of course, Ian's voice and Martin's guitar also seem to have a more up front share of the mix as well, but with a more apparent concert echo. There are no annoying track fades, it flows like a good concert should. A couple of details are offered about the song listing. The Minstrel In The Gallery cut is only the first verse of the song with no instumental interludes. It was only used as an intro to Cross Eyed Mary which is played in it's entirety. The next songs in order are played pretty much straight up: This In Not Love, Rocks On The Road, Heavy Horses, Tall Thin Girl, Still Loving You. Thick As A Brick is the shortened version that has been performed on tours after the newness wore off and more time had to be made for newer material. You'll need to find an old bootleg from the early seventies to get a complete live recording of that song (i.e. L.A. Fabulous Forum '73). But I digress. A New Day Yesterday has Bouree (not mentioned in the track listing) sandwiched in the middle making a nice medley. The next cut is very interesting, it is an acoustic instrumental rendering of an old JT song called Reasons For Waiting followed by a short Blues Jam (listed titled of this track) and then finished up with some more of the Reasons For Waiting instrumental. And finally, a rockin' version of Jump Start completes this concert CD. Any major fan of Jethro Tull will probably grade this as a five star CD. I personally stopped collecting JT after the Mistrel In The Gallery, only picking up three more later albums and the 20th year 3 cd compilation box set, until now when I purchased the Live At The BBC album. I will probably keep it, but I'm sure it will get less playing time then my old Jethro Tull studio albums."
