4.0 out of 5 stars Saved by the 70's, 9 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Around The World Live [DVD] [2013] [NTSC] (DVD)
I looked forward to this as it contained more of the 1976 Tampa coverage which had only previously been seen in snippets and it doesn't disappoint! This was Tull at their best with the best 'live' lineup. Some fantastic guitar from Martin Barre and brilliant bass/drums from John Glascock/Barrimore Barlow complemented by John Evan's keyboards. The Munich coverage is a bit of a shock as although it contains some great playing, the picture quality is awful and the sound gradually deteriorates to almost unlistenable (it's like a bad bootleg)! From thereon the 1980's stuff is fine (previously seen on another DVD)but the 1990's onwards is a bit downhill for me as although the playing is excellent, Ian Andersons problems with his voice make for difficult listening/viewing, it is a strain to watch him 'strain' to deliver, although he has such strong stage presence he nearly makes up for it.

Overall then, a must for the Tampa concert alone and an interesting visual history of the various band changes. The only sad aspect is Ian's voice deteriorating and seeing the band gradually become more 'staid' with the lineup changes in contrast with the fiery performances of the 70's/80's, something they have in common with my favourite 70's band Yes.
