4 stars This is the great double live Tull LP. You have to listen to the entertainer Ian Anderson, taking a friendly British voice, a bit like Frank Zappa did during his concerts, using the American accent. When he sings, he seems to have very much fun! Martin Barre's electric guitar is rather razor, so sometimes the album flirts with the metal boundary. Accordion, glockenspiel, portative organ, acoustic guitar, flute, many instruments well played live allow us to notice Tull remains OUTSTANDING and complex on the scene. The bass is quite bottom, loud and well played. Barriemore Barlow does a very good job on drums: he is particularly outstanding during his incredible solo, easily comparable to Neil Peart's live solos! Many great songs from miscellaneous albums are played. It is definitely a great live prog album.

Rating: 4.5 stars
