Image of Jethro Tull


Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, North of London. With a common love of Blues and an appreciation, between them, of various other music forms, they started to win over a small but enthusiastic audience in the various pubs and clubs of Southern England. ...

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Jethro Tull is one of those groups for whom I resist the notion of a greatest hits collection, probably because they had two albums ("Thick as a Brick" and "Passion Play") which were created as unfieid works. Even on "Aqualung" there is more thematic unit than you usually find on Rock albums, even when you are dealing with Progressive Rock, so "Original Masters" strikes me as strange as listening to one movement from a Mozart symphony. This collection covers some of Jethro Tull's best work from 1969-1975, and I would certainly agree with everybody else who has commented that the lineup could certainly be better given what is available. I would have gone for "Bouree," "Wondering Aloud" and the Marcus Purdy sequence from "Passion Play" instead of "Sweet Dream," "Witches Promise" and "Life's A Long Song." Ask me again tomorrow and I will probably have a different answer.
So if you are already an Ian Anderson enthusiast, then "Original Masters" will give you an urge to go listen to your favorite Jethro Tull albums again. If you are familiar with Jethro Tull mainly from what few songs received heavy AM radio play, then these songs may well whet your appetite for the group's more ambitious music. Now, if somebody could just explain to me how we come to live in a world where the music from "Thick As A Brick" is used to sell cars? Apparently the executives who Okayed that ad do not remember what is in the gutter when your love is in the sink. Amazing. Just remember to go check out the albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars original masters 28 May 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
I like Jethro Tull. This is a good overview of their best songs. However Jethro Tull are really about making albums as a whole which just can't be replicated on a collection like this. Because I can't afford all their good albums there are enough songs on here to make it worth downloading the whole CD rather than just picking a few titles. The edited version of Thick as a Brick on here really doesn't work though.

5.0 out of 5 stars My late adolescence on CD 18 Dec 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought Original Masters in 1988, in the Woolworths sale, purely because a hip friend had a copy. I guessed that if she liked them they had to be okay, and being born rather too late to be aware of Tull in their heyday I had only her recommendation to go on. She had fine taste - Original Masters is everything I wanted to hear at 18 - mysterious, ingenious, even a little romantic. It can easily be said to be a definitive guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jethro Tull Showcase album 11 Feb 2000
Format:Audio CD
Indeed, this isn't just any veteran rock group compilation. 'Original Masters' is ideal for converting anybody interested to being a Tully. It includes old favourites, differing in style and sound. Although I had most of the tracks on other CD's, it still proved a special programme and therefore convenient having the 'Masters' all on one album. Truly my money's worth!
