The sublime and under-rated Martin Barre,
This review is from: Stage Left (Audio CD)
I suppose that many might say "if you like Jethro Tull then this CD is for you" and whilst that is entirely true this CD deserves attention in its own right. It's fascinating to hear how the different makes of guitar vary, and the sleeve helpfully tells you which guitar was used on each track. For me the highlights are a couple of acoustic tracks. I have never heard better. When Martine Barre and his band played as a 'support' for Jethro Tull in Cardiff, the highlight of the evening was the Martin Barre Band (with Willy Porter). It was a virtuoso performance playing the tracks on this CD with precision and yet with the excitement of a live perfomance. I cannot praise this CD too much.
