3 stars Most of the tracks originally included in LIVING IN THE PAST are now freely available in the Jethro Tull Remasters series, either in their original album context or as bonus tracks. However, this does not apply to the two live performances you will find here, but their interest is limited: "Dharma for One" mainly consists of a forgettable drum solo, and "By Kind Permission Of" shows us John Evan's desperate attempt to entertain a rock audience with snippets of Beethoven and Rachmaninov - always a disconcerting idea.

As far as I can tell, though, the lovely "Life's a Long Song" has not been re-released, except as part of a number of compilations, and four other songs (roughly contemporary with AQUALUNG) have never even appeared in remastered form: "Wond'ring again" (a mischievous re-write of "Wond'ring Aloud"), "Nursie", "Dr. Bogenbroom" and "Up the Pool". It puzzles me that Ian Anderson didn't include these in the 25th anniversary edition of AQUALUNG. (Instead he offered us, among other things, a 14-minute interview!) I find them all totally delightful, and they certainly seem reason to recommend LIVING IN THE PAST to all Tull aficionados.
