5 stars It's rather impressive that Ian ANDERSON have recorded and toured with JETHRO TULL for more than 30 years. The main part of this live album is taken from a live performance at Hammersmith Apollo, November 25th 2001. Two months earlier I saw JETHRO TULL playing at Idunteatern in Umeň, Sweden. I was impressed to see that Ian is still vital and played the songs with much joy, although he must've played them a thousand times before. The line-up has changed some times since their first album in 1968, but Ian ANDERSON has been in the band since the start. There are 21 songs on this live-CD, but only 11 of the songs are from the "Hammersmith Apollo" gig. The rest of the songs are taken from acoustic-and TV sessions and a "class of '68 reunion", whatever that is? I would've preferred that all the songs were from the same concert, considering that the show I attended at Idunteatern had a set-list containing 22 songs. Although my scepticism about not releasing a proper full-concert album I still have the Umeň concert in fresh mind, and the Hammersmith Apollo songs are performed so very good so I can't resist this live-CD anyway. Highly recommended to every JETHRO TULL fan around the world.
