4 stars Only reviewing because no-one else has, actually don't own the CD but it was taken from something that had been broadcast on the radio in 84, and shows well the conundrum that is Jethro Tull. On the heels of arguably their worst record I am left to wonder what the remastering, coming shortly of Under Wraps, will do for it because these songs, a couple of which are on this, worked out very well live. Saw this show 4 times in the US and a couple would rank in the upper 10 of roughly 80 Tull shows I've been witness to since 1972. Going out on a limb that may be surprising to some, but along with Living With The Past I'd rank this as the top Tull live recording, whereas Bursting Out, ,most folks favorite and indeed improved by remastering I'd have near the bottom. But remember you proggies this is from someone who considers A Passion Play to at best be an average Tull record, and Minstrel, Crest, and Benefit to be at or near the bottom with Under Wraps. As well as placing Rock Island and the XMAS album right near the top. Maybe I need a new head.
