Almost as good as hearing it live....,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stage Left (Audio CD)I had the good luck to see Martin Barre supporting his own band Jethro Tull recently. The set he played was mostly the songs on this album and on the strength of the gig I went and purchased this cd the next day.
Each of the 14 songs features a different guitar/mandolin/bazouki. The sleeve notes name the instrument used and tell a little story about it.
The music is mostly rock and anyone who knows Tull will recognise the styles. This album shows the contribution Martin makes to the arrangements and what a talented musician he really is. I have all his solo albums but this is the best. Play it LOUD and appreciate how underrated this man is.
