4 stars I wandered through a field of dreams last night, as rummy tales of yore took root once more. It was a full feast, fit to burst the beast of burdened eating that a stationary mind must be. What else to make of "Nursie" and "Under Wraps" served on the same plate? I believe, might even be convinced on the point, that all bands should make an intimate live album like this when wit is waning and wisdom waxing. Here are the venerable graybeards, in Israel, in Germany, in Greece, on an archaeological expedition through the temples of Tull where wonderful rediscoveries await you. In what other setting could "Rocks On The Road" (the inspiration for our travelogue's title) and "Life Is A Long Song" coexist peacefully, logical bedfellows who rise and shine together in a warm and sympathetic setting. Sweet felicity!, to hear "Too Old To Rock And Roll" and "One White Duck" rolling after, was this disc made just for me? A Little Light Music is a long and loving look at a legendary journey through the years, from the early "Bouree" 'round presently to Catfish Rising. What's impressive is how Tull still fills out the old swashbuckler's suit, handling the dusty sword once more with care and charisma. Was "A New Day Yesterday" so long ago, did "Under Wraps" just come unwrapped so soon? A Little Light Music isn't concerned with the business of When; it answers Now. The whole body of Tull, from apple to zanzibar, is as vital today as twentysomething summers ago. Time passes, wine matures and temples crumble; Tull lives on.
