Reviews

This superb set pulls together material from Jethro Tull concerts across their career and filmed at some of their many stopovers around the globe. It reaches back as far as the legendary Isle Of Wight Festival in 1970 and as recently as the Estival in Lugano, Switzerland in 2005. Much of the material is previously unreleased. The set is packaged in a 19cm x 14cm 32 page hardback book with 2 discs in each inside cover. The book contains photos from Ian Anderson s personal archive and a text on all the different shows by Joel McIver. Around The World Live charts Jethro Tull s ever evolving music through blues to rock to folk to electronica with a frequently changing line-up anchored by the ever present frontman Ian Anderson. Disc 1: Isle Of Wight 1970 / Tampa 1976 / Munich 1980 Disc 2: Dortmund 1982 / Loreley 1986 / Santiago 1996 Disc 3: Hilversum 1999 / London 2001 / Montreux 2003 Disc 4: Lugano 2005

I looked forward to this as it contained more of the 1976 Tampa coverage which had only previously been seen in snippets and it doesn't disappoint! This was Tull at their best with the best 'live' lineup. Some fantastic guitar from Martin Barre and brilliant bass/drums from John Glascock/Barrimore Barlow complemented by John Evan's keyboards. The Munich coverage is a bit of a shock as although it contains some great playing, the picture quality is awful and the sound gradually deteriorates to almost unlistenable (it's like a bad bootleg)! From thereon the 1980's stuff is fine (previously seen on another DVD)but the 1990's onwards is a bit downhill for me as although the playing is excellent, Ian Andersons problems with his voice make for difficult listening/viewing, it is a strain to watch him 'strain' to deliver, although he has such strong stage presence he nearly makes up for it.

Overall then, a must for the Tampa concert alone and an interesting visual history of the various band changes. The only sad aspect is Ian's voice deteriorating and seeing the band gradually become more 'staid' with the lineup changes in contrast with the fiery performances of the 70's/80's, something they have in common with my favourite 70's band Yes.

This is a very well put together package which to some extent does what it says on the box, showing Jethro Tull throughout their career playing over the world from the Isle of Wight in 1970 to Switzerland in 2005.
There is some familiar material which is already easily available , e.g. Isle of Wight, Montreux and London 2001 but these are just a few tracks each which i guess is to give continuity and cover certain tracks.
There are , however, quite a few things that have not been released officially before and this is both the strength and , oddly enough , part of my criticism of the set.
I had a bootleg copy of the Tampa 1976 set and, for those of you who have not seen it, it is excellent, showing a youngish, almost clean shaven, confident (arrogant?) Ian Anderson with the classic band just pre their Rock/folky era and still with a foot in the prog/ rock camp displaying an energy and edge which I had not seen before. The bootleg copy, although good quality "bled" colours and gave the impression it was from an old video tape, I looked forward to a cleaned up clearer copy. Sadly, however, there doesn't seem to have been any improvement which with the technolgy today I thought might have been possible. Still it is very watchable and a must for those of you who have not seen it before.

Next up are 10 tracks from Germany in 1980 which I anticipated with great excitement as it was on this tour that I first saw Tull. Again, nothing wrong with the performance but the quality this time , as a previous reviewer wrote is poor bootleg quality and deteriorates throughout.

Following a few available tracks from Germany in '82 and 86 disc 2 concentrates on Chile 1996 which is fascinating.

As always, the material available from Eagles Rock Records is superb. Highlights of this box are innumerable, as the concert in Tampa in 1976, available in bootleg form. The other dvds bring concerts in various locations, whit variable image quality. What disappoints is that true connoisseurs of the band are supporters of many other concerts that are not in this box (and could be included), as the concert aired on BBC in Goldersgreen Hippodrome in 1977, or even the Tangelwood concert in 1970. however, chose to put a few pieces of classic concert at the Isle of Wight in 70 (already existing in another dvd Eagle Vision). It's a shame, despite the gorgeous format and purpose of the box set, I believe that lacks much material (some of VERY GOOD).

Arrived on time and well wrapped. Fabulous selection of concerts and very interesting to learn more about the life and progression of this band. One of the concerts in Germany, to me, is badly recorded, but there is so much other great stuff on here it wasn't that irritating. If you are a Tull fan then definitelt recommend buying it.

I cannot believe the quality and packaging of this little gem, what else can you buy for this much money and sit through hours of classic material from a classic band, a gentle reminder of when bands entertained - awsome ( I hate the term) but in this istance, well derserved. Highly recommended.

......go to YouTube and see JETHRO TULL at their finest in a myriad of video from the 1970's (BEAT CLUB, French TV, BBC Sight & Sound, Tanglewood, the "Too Old" Special, etc.) in better quality than a lot of this waste of a DVD set. Face it, when Anderson screwed up his voice, his singing career was over, whether he, or his fans, want to admit or not. I feel bad for him, but he has enough $$$ coming in to ease his pain. If he wanted to give his fans value for money he'd have included all the great '70's video missing from this set. Save your hard-earned money......

Kudos to Eagle for such a fine compilation.
Now we need the Sao Paulo, Brazil 2000 show that was recorded by Direct TV Brazil to be released.
