Reviews

Concert outing for The Tull - one of the most successful British acts of all time. In 2003 the band made its first (and so far only) visit to the Montreux Festival. Split into a semi-acoustic first half and a full on electric second half, the concert was a triumph combining newer songs such as 'Dot Com', 'Pavane' and 'Budapest' with classic favourites like 'Aqualung' and 'Locomotive Breath'. As ever Ian Anderson leads from the front with his instantly recognizable voice and inimitable style of one-legged flute playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tull in HD - awesome! 19 Feb 2009
Format:Blu-ray
I'm so glad that eagle vision have decided to release the 'Live in Montreux' series in HD (I also own the Tori Amos DVD from the series). The picture quality is excellent, as is the sound. A large percentage of my CD/DVD collection consists of 70's rock bands; from Black Sabbath through to Yes. The problem is that only a handful of these bands are still going and lets face it some should have hung there instruments up over a decade ago....

Not so with Ian Anderson and co. Like many other bands of the era they've gone through many personnel changes over the years (Only Anderson and Barre are here from the early line up) but once you sit down and press play it doesn't seem to matter. Regarding song choice, admittedly I always crave more of the earlier classic stuff but I guess you have to have a good mix to cover a somewhat lengthy career - Living in the Past, Aqualung and Locomotive Breath are all present and correct to satisfy the nostalgic amongst us. What strikes me most about watching this gig is how tight the band are. The arrangements are fantastic and the musicianship is second to none. Mr Anderson jigs around (almost) as nimbly as he ever did and the DVD seems to have captured the feeling of energy perfectly. If you have a Blu Ray player and can stretch the budget a bit, it's well worth the extra cash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tull Live at Montreux 9 Feb 2010
Format:Blu-ray
The only time I have seen Tull live was at Redcar Jazz Club, now closed down regretably, in the early 1970's. Ian Anderson looks distinguished rather than youthful now, and no longer plays his flute with one foot resting on his other thigh. However he has not lost his youthful enthusiasm, or his 'patter,' and regales the audience throughout this concert with witty comments which serve to enliven the whole proceedings. The pictures on this Blu Ray dvd are of excellent quality on my 32inch flat screen device, as is the sound quality - I played it through my hi fi system with the volume raised somewhat. The material covers 30 years or so of their music and all the musicians display excellent musicality, as I expected. They are all recorded giving solo renditions from time to time, though Anderson's flute and Barr's guitar have the majority of the limelight. The audience is very appreciative of their efforts which adds to the atmosphere. Tull fans I fancy will love it, non Tull music lovers should consider buying it and sitting back to enjoy the entertainment value and the musical arrangements therein.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate Jethro Tull 27 July 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A recent purchase that I wish I had made so much earlier. A combination of a Blue Ray with great visual quality but in particular wonderful DTS sound. There must be something about Montreux as a venue that brings the best out of performers and this concert matches that of the magnificent "YES" concert of the same year (2003). A nicely balanced set list covering the many changes over the years in the musical direction of Jethro Tull. A superb band at their peak with every instrument clearly heard to it's best effect. Ian Anderson is a true Icon and what I would not do to have the opportunity to share a pint or two with him in a good old fashioned English pub and talk about it all!

3.0 out of 5 stars Jethro Tull on Blu-Ray, at last! 18 April 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
As a long time fan of Jethro Tull (since 1969) and having seen them many times and introduced many friends to their musical good taste, then it comes as a bit of a disappointment to tell you that, this was a little bit of a let down. The band are in good fettle, although sadly, Ian himself was vocally, sounding a little tired. The set list wasn't particularly inspired either, although with a band that's been going for as long as they have, it must be difficult to choose what to play and inevitably some people will be as disappointed as I was. Nothing from 'A', 'Stormwatch', 'Heavy Horses' or 'Broadsword and the Beast' for example, which for me, is among the very finest of their (or anybody else's!) musical art. Some songs from their other albums are also indispensable too.

If you've already purchased the Jethro Tull DVD of 'Living With The Past' (from the same era), then that's an altogether better DVD, with good extras, even though some of the same tracks (and the same clothes), make an appearance, you do, at least get an acoustic set with the former members of Tull as well. So musically more interesting too.

Still, it's good to have them on Blu-Ray, but come on lads a bit of extra rehearsal and a nice long Blu-Ray covering more of the back catalogue to show the youngsters what a great band should sound like would be nice!

So till then 'Cheerio'.
