5.0 out of 5 stars Good beyond my imaginings..., 17 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of Acoustic Jethro Tull (Audio CD)
I came across this CD whilst browsing on Amazon. Previously I had just one 'Greatest Hits' album of Jethro Tull. I can't say I'm a huge fan of 'classic rock'. Whenever I played the hits album, I had always gravitated to the acoustic content so I was pleased to find this album full of the stuff. It's fantastic. I'm hoping there will be a second volume of the tracks Ian Anderson had to leave out. I always was fascinated by the figure Anderson cuts as Tull's frontman - oddly archaic but anarchic, contemporary and iconic at the same time - and, as another reviewer asserted, if this album really is a distillation of the essence of Tull how could anyone not go on to explore more of the band's output when the essence is this good? As a relative newcomer to Jethro Tull, this album has converted me. There is a depth and at times a joy about this music that will hook in plenty of casual listeners if they gave it a chance. I can sympathise with established fans longing for new product but I am very glad to have had the opportunity to listen to this material collected together in one place. If you're in two minds about Tull, give this album a listen and have your mind made up for you. It will exceed your expectations.
