3 stars A nice little compilation, but nothing special. This one could be good starter for newbie, but not necessarily - because there are better JETHRO TULL starting points around, and, to be very honest, any Tull's album could be a good starting point too.

Anyway, this is a budget compilation, and within its 50 and some minutes you can hear some essential Tull - of course "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath", some less known (but far from obscure) numbers, and edit #1 from "Thick As A Brick". This one is interesting if you are unfamiliar with "Thick As A Brick" album, because after discovering this acoustic intro, the whole album will be a very pleasant surprise. At least that happened in my case. The song is going into fade out precisely before electric guitar strikes and announces edit #2. However, the experience must be much less impressive if happened vice versa, I guess.

I was never really fond of "Bungle In The Jungle" and "Too Old To Rock And Roll, Too Young To Die", really, and I don't know why almost every Tull compilation must contain them. However, in conclusion the choice of the songs is not bad, really. Especially not for someone who is just entering the world of Jethro Tull.

CD sleeve is not very informative; foreground is represented by not very good illustration of the Tramp, and background contains one Ian's photo with very grumpy face. Perhaps he was annoyed with the selection of the songs?
