This review is from: The Very Best Of Jethro Tull (Audio CD)
This CD is going to have a limited audience. Any Tull fan will already have these songs in both studio and live versions (albeit perhaps on good old vinyl) The track choices are not particularly good. 'Steel Monkey' was always poor, 'Roots to Branches' is one of the weakest tracks on the album, and 'Weathercock' knocks spots off 'Heavy Horses' - not even the Eddie Jobson live version is included. Tull's longevity is a source of personal delight, and I have great memories of 'Budapest' in 1991 and a certain young lady who was part of the stage show for that song, but this is not 'the Very Best' - except perhaps in the opinion of the compiler....oops!
