Review by Warthur
4 stars Once upon a time, this live recording from Jethro Tull was put out as a bonus for the 2010 reissue of Stand Up. This was an incongruous matchup, truth told - it was captured late in the Benefit tour, just as the group was about to enter the studio and bring forth Aqualung, and given how rapidly Tull's musical style was developing at the time this means that it would make an incongruous pairing with Stand Up.

The more recent deluxe rereleases of Stand Up has resorted to a different live recording to spruce up its offer (a 1969 performance), leaving this orphaned - but never fear, the band put it out as a standalone release for Record Store Day. It's a solid performance from a year when Tull were absolutely on fire onstage - the Nothing Is Easy live release of their Isle of Wight Festival appearance, or the two live appearances from Chicago and Tanglewood which made their way onto the recent deluxe release of Benefit, are proof positive of that. This has some moments of weak sound, but otherwise further documents a rich era for the group. Worth it if you can't get enough of 1970-vintage Tull, and given how fine that year was for them there's probably a good many people that description applies to.
