Prog Reviewer
5 stars A brilliant document of Jethro Tull's live show at what was arguably their apex. The recordings here come from the Heavy Horses tour, before the point where the onset of John Glascock's health problems brought the turmoil which would result in the fumbling of Stormwatch. With powerful, hard rocking versions of great tracks from Aqualong onwards, the renditions of songs on here give their studio versions a run for their money every single time - indeed, the selections from Warchild and Too Old to Rock and Roll blast their studio equivalents out of the water. Enough of Ian Anderson's stage patter is conserved to give an idea of the raucously funny tone of Tull's stage show without taking up space which would be better served by more songs - and the song selection is outright sublime. This, in short, is how you do a live album - and moreover, perhaps the best Tull release ever. When you remember them, remember them like this.
Warthur | 5/5 |
