Biography

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. ...

Jethro Tull released the album initially intended to be an Ian Anderson solo project in the early eighties. I must say it is my least faviourite album with not one song that really grabs you. Also, as much as I admire Eddie Jobson's talents, I can't help but feel that I resent him for taking the great John Evan's place in the band. This is also true for Barrie Barlow. This absense is especially noticable on the DVD. Which brings me to the highlight of the buy.
The DVD is Slipstream, the half concert half vidio extravaganza that was shown during the same time as 'A' was released, and is of high quality and makes the album worth getting. It is, as mentioned in over reviews, worth buying by itself let alone free! Three cheers for Mr Anderson I say. What a bargain. It makes this album go from a one star to a four star in my opinion. If you don't own this then I strongly suggest you get it!

I read a lot of mixed reviews about this cd and I put off buying it for some time. What a bad decision. "A" is actually a great collection of songs. Yep, definately of its time, but still very much a Jethro Tull album of substance. "Flyingdale Flyer" and "Black Sunday" are absolute winners straight away. But whats more pleasing about all the tracks here is that they have depth and grow on you the more you listen. Thats one of the reasons I enjoy most Jethro Tull's music - it gets better the more you listen to it and you never tire of it. And as a final reminder of how Anderson can turn a tune, "And Further On" rounds off the cd beautifully.
As for the DVD, awesome!!!! I would have paid twice as much just for the DVD its that good. If you like Jethro Tull and you havent got this cd/dvd, you're mad.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Daniel Ratner on 19 Mar. 2004
Format: Audio CD
Back in 1980 very few people owned video recorders therefore there were really no music videos. I remember 2-Blondie and Gary Numan and then came along Jethro Tull's Slipstream. I loved this one plus the L.P. "A" because they sounded and looked saw up to date as compared with Heavy Horses and Stormwatch where they looked so old! Eddie Jobson gave them the early 80s sound (Ultravox,Numan etc) which Ian continue to use especially on "Under Wraps" 4 years latter. The video showed Ian should have tried some acting as well especially in the nos. "Sweet Dreams" and "Too old...."-also very funny! Since dvds started all Tull fans have been waiting for this video to be transfered to dvd and prepared to pay 12-15 quid for it - BUT wait we're getting it for free! Thanks Ian - amazing value!

Format: Audio CD
This was the second Jethro Tull I bought after Broadsword many moons ago. I honestly think the first 4 tracks are as good as anything Jethro Tull have done. Eddie Jobson is a cracking keyboard player, particularly on the piano and he really lights up this album. Considering this was mostly a new band this is a really tight group; just listen to the musicianship on "The Pinemarten's Jig". It's just as good as the previous JT line-up. The second half of the CD does suffer from slightly weaker song-writing but there's still plenty of fun to be had from the likes of "4WD". As far as the concept goes I thought there was a very strong cry against modern (early 1980s) society running through these songs. At the time there was a very materialistic society being created by the government and commuting and working long hours (if you could get work) was taking over people's lives. Hence "Working John" and "Black Sunday" rally against working yourself to the bone, "4WD" and "Batteries not Included" were really about greed, and Fylingdale Flyer and Protect & Survive ridiculed our defences against the ever-present nuclear threat. Overall these are songs about middle-class suburbia in the early 1980s and very good ones too!

I've no idea why people seems to dislike this album. It is energetic, with superb playing and a set without a single duff track. Carey is a worthy successor of Barlow on the drums, Jobson adds his own virtuoso contribution, it's as tight as a knot, vibrant, and Further On is one of Anderson's best romantic elegies, which rounds the album off beautifully. Recommended.

Jethro Tull are a classic band. They have lasted many years and have produced many albums. You either like the sound or you don't but if you hook into their sound at any point in their history you will experience a quality product, inspired music, committed values.
'A' ushered in a new phase for the band in a new decade, with new band members and was a forerunner to one of my personal favourite albums 'Broadsword and the Beast'. It is a smooth production.

I had the album on vinyl and as the price was so low with a free DVD took the opportunity to upgrade. The CD is good, not one of JTs best works, but has some very good songs on it. The DVD was interesting particularly the live bits. Probably one for fans.

This was the only album missing from my collection of the Tull albums.
I am pleased I waited for the special edition with the DVD.
Brilliant as always.
Can't wait to see Ian on stage at the Sage Gateshead on May 16th.
