3 stars At first, I bought this version of compilation in cassette format even though I had already got all albums that the songs in this compilation are taken from. I just want to enjoy the songs in different setting with different setlist. It satisfied my needs. When this compilation was available in CD format, I bought again the CD. This compilation is a good introduction to the music of Jethro Tull especially for those who have never knew the band. The compilation has a right balance of folk acoustic based composition with some rocker. It opens beautifully with "Teacher" which has good melody and composition. "Aqualung" is the band's legendary track. "Thick As A Brick" is not the one that I like because it's cut from the original song with a long duration (45 minutes in total). This applies the same to "A Passion Play" which endures 45 minutes of the original version. "Bungle In The Jungle" was in fact my first experience with the music of Jethro Tull from "War Child" album. Another favorite of mine is "Locomotive Breath". "Nothing Is Easy" is a blues rock song that characterizes the music of early Jethro Tull.

This is a very good introduction compilation for those of you who are new to the band.
