This DVD has for main interest the Tull videoclips throughout their carreer (if you can call the 70 TV sessions videoclips) but most of the time is spent at the 25th anniversary of Jethro Tull where a good deal of the musicians that came and went in the group are present. There are a few glaring absences (most notably the deceased John Glascock and Mrs dee Palmer as he likes to be called that nowadays) but it is very pleasing to see all of those old chaps in fine forms (excepet for maybe Abrahams who seems a bit burdened by the age) reminiscing about the good and bad times.

The format is really a Rockumentary mixing interviews with concert excerpts (seldom is there a complete live track) and the afore-mentioned videoclips. If Teacher and Witch's Promise are the real gems, there is also a 77 TV special (BBC) of Aqualung. I am not a fan of later tull video tracks presented here. However the rather long and not very funny (and certainly silly) Hare Who Lost His Spetacles video is fun to watch once but will certainly not stand repeated viewings.

As a matter of fact , the same remark can be said about the whole DVD! Quite enjoyable viewing (I would even say it is a must-see) once , I doubt that you will want to play this DVD very often.
