4 stars One of the best live albums of one of my favourite bands. My favourite Tull's live is, actually, "A Little Light Music". I know I'm alone in this case. However, this one is only a hairline weaker, that means, still magnificent.

Funky Claude announced a band capable of being raw and controlled at the same time, preserving their essential "tullness". "No Lullaby" in this version (a KILLING guitar riff+flute intro) is much better than on the studio album. That is the case with all the songs from the "Heavy Horses", actually (I'm not very fond of that album). "Thick As A Brick" is shortened to 12 minutes, but all the essential parts are here, don't worry. And so on...why bother, you know the songs probably.

The flaws are: "A New Day Yesterday" (a matter of taste), "Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll..." (again), "Minstrel In The Gallery" (the best bit is cut out. why?)...and that's it. Everything else is highly enjoyable. Flute Solo show Ian's virtuosity well, the finale "Locomotive Breath"-->"The Dambusters March" is great to investigate if you're a Tull fan. "Quatrain" is fun. "Conundrum" is progger's delight, with great drum solo, proving us that JETHRO TULL had two drumers-geniuses in their career: both Barlow and Bunker are outrageously good, Bunker proved it on "Dharma", Barriemore Barlow proved it here.

Because of a few flaws, this one deserves 4,4999 stars, but it's still quintessential. A major live work from a seminal prog band. C'mon.
