4 stars EXCELLENT DVD, if you need one item to summarise Tull 1968-1970 this is a perfect choice.

Tull, along with many other high profile bands of the time played at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival. You will witness dirty intoxicated hippies tearing down fences, making threats, a flower child being lifted off the ground with her knee-fro flapping in the wind, and general insanity that came with the downfall of the hippie culture. Amongst all that, is an incredible performance by Jethro Tull.

Ian Anderson is the most eccentric I have ever witnessed, either he was on a natural high from the large audience, or he lied about not taking drugs. Either way, it helps the atmosphere of the DVD. The talent of the band is outstanding here, Clive Bunker delivers one of the best drum solos I've ever heard, John Evan is rocking on his hammond, Glenn Cornick knows how to play is incredibly distorted bass, and Barre plays his guitar flawlessly.

Essential for any Tull fan, and I reccomend this for newbies to be immersed in their music.

OGTL | 4/5 |
