3 stars For a Tull freak, this is a real unmissable gem. Seeing thirteen past and present Jethro Tull members all together in a room, hearing their discussions, and seeing their reunions is be great. Having this great footage laced with old concert and studio footage, along with new concert and studio footage, and even a few clips from Tull's videos (the earliest of which being the Heavy Horses video) will make it even more pleasing. A lot of the interviews are not only enlightening, but incredibly insightful and simply interesting - even for non-Tull or casual-Tull fans. The discussions are not exclusively on Tull topics.

The videos of early Tull in concert is really great. Seeing Ian in his youth, doing his absurd faces, his ridiculous dances, and seeing him prancing around in his outlandish costumes is hilarious. But the playing itself is great, and only on a few occasions does the video not match the audio (which is a common thing with dated footage). Quality on these old videos is quite good, and they play some of their better songs. We even have both vintage and modern footage of moments from Thick as a Brick! And, of course, The Hare Who Lost His Spectacles' video in its entirety. Overall, this is a great DVD, but will, of course, be yet greater in the eyes of a true Tull fan.
