4 stars This is a great compilation for those new to Tull though understandably there are none of his classic epics such as Thick as A Brick which is edited here only providing the intro. However, there is enough here to keep even the most discerning Tull fan satisfied. The comp covers all of his greatest material from the first album to the latest at this point in the band's illustrious career.

There are excellent highlights on this double CD including:


Bourée Living In The Past Teacher Cross-Eyed Mary Mother Goose Aqualung Locomotive Breath Skating Away On The Thin Ice Of The New Day Bungle In The Jungle

On CD2 Minstrel In The Gallery Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll: Too Young To Die Songs From The Wood Heavy Horses Dun Ringill Broadsword Farm On The Freeway Kissing Willie This Is Not Love

Of course there are some there are criminally missing from Benefit, Aqualung, Stand Up, This Was, Minstrel in the Gallery and the excellent full length versions of Passion Play side 1 and Thick as a Brick sides 1 and 2. But you can get these all on the original albums and still have this as a complement to have the best of Jethro Tull. This is a great collection of songs from one of the greatest prog artists of the century - Jethro Tull, the Masters.
