4 stars Being a big Jethro Tull fan, I said I have to aquire something visualy not only audio. So, my eyes was poped on when I saw this concert on video cattes, bought from Musea records two years ago. Also the A album is one of my top 5 releases of them and was easy for me to enjoy to the max this concert. Maybe to others this is like a tipycal '80's concert with synthesisers and all that plastic atmosphere, but is not the case here, at least in my book. The concert is also mixt up with some video clips of the band, making even more enjoyble than a usual concert. The playing list features pieces from their latest (then) album A, but the main repertoire is made from classical tunes, already know by everybody intresten in their music. The atmosphere is not necesarly overblowing but as a whole is a quite pleasent and shows that in the 1980 Jethro Tull is still in bussines. My fav track is Black sunday, superb played and full of good interplays between legendary Martin Barre on guitar and the unmatched talent of Eddi Jobson on keys and ocasionaly violin. Also a good job is made by the drumer Mark Craney , who besides the two pieces from A album, where alredy was involved in studio, he plays very strong the older stuff with a plus on Locomotiv Breath (excellent). All in all an excellent addition to my collection and for sure needs a better view by others, 4 stars easely.
