Product Description

Product Description

Arranging and representing the Tull songs,featured on this album became a very pleasant and rewarding task.These lesser known songs have always been amongst my favourite pieces of music and reworking them brought back many good memories.I have written the rest of the music,so hopefully with sympathy and taste.Composing and rearranging is my passion,and bringing together the many acoustic instruments was a delight for me,but of course,the electric guitar,couldn't be totally left out of the picture!Most of the work was just myself and engineer James Bragg,and we had a huge amount of enjoyment every day in the studio.I hope you enjoy the results of this project as much as we did! Featured musicians,Martin Barre-Acoustic/Classic/Electric Guitars,Bouzouki,Mandolin,Bass,Flute & Bass Clarinet,Dan Crisp-Vocals,Frank Mead-Blackwood Flute,Whistles Bodhran,Blues Harp,Jonathan Noyce-Bass,George Lindsay-Drums & Percussion,James Bragg-Engineered,Mixed & Mastered.

What a superb album. Martin Barre is sounding better than ever and the new tracks mixed in with some great old Tull tracks works well. Acoustic and electric guitar sound crisp and clear and the overall production sounds fine. I Really like the tracks Home, Sundown, From a dead beat to an old greaser and Air : lament of the spalpeen . Hope Martin makes another album along the same lines again, old and new. Thankyou Martin for a great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Martin Shines 24 Oct 2013
By M. Katz
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This album shows why there are few musicians/composers who compare with the brilliance of Ian Anderson/Martin Barre. This album contains almost all the elements (no Ian) that make Jethro Tull albums great. The complex melodies of Jethro Tull are expressed brilliantly by Martin. Dare I say that some are even better than the original compositions first offered among the various Tull albums. This is an absolute "Must Have" for any Tull fan ... and for those who may be curious as to why Tull have such ardent fans, this collection will give you a good idea. Bravo Martin ... I am sure Ian is quite proud.

Five Star...!

Martin "Lancelot" Barre, is one of the best guitarist of the music world. ( He was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on 'Aqualung'. ) You can find his creativity and musical genious, every Jethro Tull album.

Also, in this album, he is very good "Flut player" ( sorry Ian ..! )
Martin, re-arranged and represented his favorite TULL songs in this album.
( My very favorite Tull songs; "Moths", "Hymn 43", "From A Dead Beat To An Old Greaser", "Requiem", "Home".. )
And the new Martin song; "Sundown" is great...

No more words....
Highly recommended for "Guitar Lovers"...
TULLIAN's must buy...

Thank you Martin.
Best wishes from Istanbul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Barre too Far! 27 Oct 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is an understated gem of an album and re-inforces to me why I consider Martin Barre to be up there with Richard Thompson. His reinterpretations of classic Tull tracks help to illustrate what Martin added to Ian Anderson's vision, and I would recommend this to both Tull fans and anybody who appreciates skilfully played guitar music without histrionics.

By Max

Martin Barre demonstrates great sensitivity, craft and creativity in presenting these tunes. The result is musically expressive, yet still refined. Mr. Barre remains one of rock's most criminally underrated guitarists. His voice is always recognizable and unique. Buy this CD now.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Tull Fans 9 Oct 2013
By The Soft Machine Operator TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An interesting album for Tull fans, featuring a mix of new tracks by Martin Barre mixed up with mainly acoustic versions of Tull tracks. The mix of new material and Tull tracks works with, with the new music generally leading into a Tull song. For the first three songs it's almost exclusively acoustic, and pleasant enough, but occasionally veers towards background music. However, Lament of the Spalpeen/Martin's Jig changes the tone by starting with a woowind driven atmospheric section that leads into a Celtic sounding jig before launching into Tull's My God with vocals rather than a guitar line following the original vocal. This is a powerful section and offers a welcome change to the acoustic Tull material.

From here on there's an excellent version of 'Deadbeat to an old Greaser', 'Protect and Survive' and it ends with a brilliant track called 'Sundown' which is a new Barre composition and much more in the rock/prog vein of Jethro Tull.

To be honest, I really wanted to hear more of Barre's riffing on electric guitar, but this is clearly a very personal project and Barre's own composition work very well alongside the Tull material. This isn't for everyone, but Tull fans should enjoy it. I hope to see more of Barre's own material on his next album.

A very good album which is largely acoustic and with, unsurprisingly, a Jethro Tull ambience to it. That in many ways helps the aalbum and with some excellent flute and other accompaniment this is an aalbum I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Jan 2014
By Wales
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is without doubt an excellent CD. I think it would have been improved by mixing in a few heavier pieces. The light and heavy contrasts were a hallmark of early Tull and for that reason I think Stage Left better. The reinterpretation of Tull classics are good, but it is more exciting to look forward to a collection of new compositions. Martin is a superb and I look forward to his next CD.
