3 stars Not a whole brick, just part of one

A reasonable collection of Jethro Tull's works released between 1969 and "Songs from the wood" in 1977. The selections are predictable, with successful singles such as "Living in the past" and "Witches promise" naturally included.

I can appreciate the difficulty of including extracts from albums such as "Thick as a brick", which is effectively one 40+ minute track. Here though, it plays from the start, then fades after its allotted time has passed, regardless of the fact that Anderson is in mid performance.

With the tracks being mainly singles, and more accessible album tracks, there little of Tull's instrumental prowess. It is good to hear "Sweet dream" again though, I had forgotten how orchestrated it was!

Worthwhile as a gentle introduction to the music of this fine, long lasting band.
