Product Description

Product Description

At the end of their American tour last year, Tull leader Ian Anderson was persuaded by the folks at XM radio in Washington to go into their studio in front of a live audience to record a live version of what is regarded by many as Tull’s seminal work. Yes, the multi-platinum Aqualung album.

Only Ian and guitarist Martin Barre remain from the original line up who recorded Aqualung back in January 71. Most of the current band were babes in arms at the time or in the case of bassist Jon Noyce only a mere twinkle in his parents eyes. Both Ian and Martin were initially against the idea but when persuaded they agreed to recreate one of their most important recordings in a live format on the grounds that the live recording gave both the band and its ever loyal audience a chance to re-experience it.

What a really good idea. Get a supergroup into a small radio studio and ask them to reproduce entirely, live, one of their most successful albums. Don't allow any retakes (well one or two) and give it a 'playing in the front room' ambiance. If like me, just the thought of having Jethro Tull do this is enough to make your reach for the One-Click button, then do not resist the temptation to do so.
Jethro Tull, or more precisely the remaining members, Anderson and Barre, augmented by some very fine young musicians, authentically reproduce their former glory - live! Complete and with additional dialogue at the end of the CD in order to avoid interrupting the flow.
You are undoubtedly reading this because like many of us old 'wrinklies' you owned and loved the original and are intrigued about how well it has survived the last 30-odd years. Even if you have the excellently re-mastered original version on CD, you will want to own this live event as well because it really does not disappoint at all.
The execution by the band is flawless. Whether or not you agree with the content of Anderson's transparently cynical and hectoring message about organised religion, the quality of the music has a timeless feel and stands up against anything from the current cadre of angry young men on MTV2. Of course, you try telling younger people that nowadays and they won't believe you!
Listening to Ian Anderson in full flood on either flute or acoustic guitar I am reminded again that he is a musical virtuoso. The solo acoustic guitar introduction to 'My God' is a wonderful piece of composition for guitar in its own right.
This particular version of Aqualung, is required listening for any serious appreciation of how to compose, arrange and deliver first class adult orientated rock music, with a message.

I was quite sceptical about whether a live version of Aqualung was going to be a good idea or not - there have been so many re-hashes of existing track lists in recent years I was concerned that this would be another one. This version of Aqualung is much more than a re-hash od the tracks though. It all sounds very good and genuinely live. A number of the tracks e.g. Mother Goose are quite different from the originals and if a few more tracks had been a bit more different it would have been even better. Ian Andersons voice sometimes struggles to reproduce the same sound as he did 34 years ago but overall the musicianship quality is excellent.
Much better than I expected and well worth buying.

This is an excellent live recording of Aqualung.
It cannot and does not claim to be better than the original merely a simple performance of the original LP live. And it achives it's aim admirably.
the playing like all of Jethro Tull is excellent.
Performed in a small studio in a 'salubrious' part of town for XM radio before a specially sweepstake specially invited (dam fortunate Yankees!) from the Jethro Tull fan club together with a version of Tull hot from an American Tour everything is in place for a piece de resistance.
Ian Anderson has put the between track banter sensibly at the end as extras because as he rightly says people would soon get bored of them after repeated listenings.
He is of course right the music is the thing.
In this it is excellent.
I won't and don't need to go into specific tracks one by one just read a review of the original, 25th Anniversay or the soon to be released (in Oct 2011.. this being reviewed in sept, 2011) versions for that.
The good news is that the CD is excellent if you love Jethro Tull and Aqualung you will love this.
The money from sales is also going to a very worthy cause for the homeless and you cannot say fairer than that?

Surely Anderson should be awarded a knighthood??

Watch this space.

I saw the tour in the UK so I had to buy this, unlike the Americans, who got it for free when they attended the gigs. This is a cracking reworking of the classic album. My only problem with it is that all the between song banter has been extracted and then placed after the songs.

This is Tull at their Best. Absolutely stunning. Wish there was a dvd of this happening?
Nothing wrong here. Yes its about nearly 35years down the line but these boys can still rock.
What can I say a must for every Jethro Tull fan. Buy this while its available.
