2 stars I saw Carmen open for Jethro Tull in 1973, at the Sports Arena, in San Diego, California, and if you didn't or hadn't heard Tull beofre that, yuo could attest to the reason that Carmen was there. Blew the audience away with their raw energy, and the music was excellent. They were true Fandango's In Space. I really miss that era of Tull's music, when John Glascock (bass player for Carmen), filled the empty void in Jethro Tull's rhythm section.

For the collector only though, is what I have rated this, as other people might tend NOT to understand the music nor the reference it has to Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, and the rest of the Jetrho Tull family tree.

I have the ABC Records issue #DSDP-50192, which has an entirely different has a picture of a blossomed white rose, with a budding red rose beside it, and the sound is great...I have it burned to CD, and listen to it evertime I think of Jethro Tuill's early days.

May John Glascock R.I.P.
