4 stars A great live album and a must have for Jethro Tull fans. Lovers of folk, classical music and a bit of lounge jazz should enjoy the fusions here too. It's generally quite laid back with the orchestral backing, the arrangements are often subtle but add some depth to create nice versions of a few early JT pieces, especially Cheap Day Return, Mother Goose, Bouree and "Aqualung". The accordian appears a lot throughout the set, including on "Living In The Past". In addition, Anderson plays some solo pieces and other classical works, of which "Pavane" works beautifully. In all, this album fortifies Mr Anderson as a top musician of our time. Highly recommended.
