This superb set pulls together material from Jethro Tull concerts across their career and filmed at some of their many stopovers around the globe. It reaches back as far as the legendary Isle Of Wight Festival in 1970 and as recently as the Estival in Lugano, Switzerland in 2005. Much of the material is previously unreleased. The set is packaged in a 19cm x 14cm 32 page hardback book with 2 discs in each inside cover. The book contains photos from Ian Anderson s personal archive and a text on all the different shows by Joel McIver. Around The World Live charts Jethro Tull s ever evolving music through blues to rock to folk to electronica with a frequently changing line-up anchored by the ever present frontman Ian Anderson. Disc 1: Isle Of Wight 1970 / Tampa 1976 / Munich 1980 Disc 2: Dortmund 1982 / Loreley 1986 / Santiago 1996 Disc 3: Hilversum 1999 / London 2001 / Montreux 2003 Disc 4: Lugano 2005

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.
There is some familiar material which is already easily available , e.g. Isle of Wight, Montreux and London 2001 but these are just a few tracks each which i guess is to give continuity and cover certain tracks.
There are , however, quite a few things that have not been released officially before and this is both the strength and , oddly enough , part of my criticism of the set.
I had a bootleg copy of the Tampa 1976 set and, for those of you who have not seen it, it is excellent, showing a youngish, almost clean shaven, confident (arrogant?) Ian Anderson with the classic band just pre their Rock/folky era and still with a foot in the prog/ rock camp displaying an energy and edge which I had not seen before. The bootleg copy, although good quality "bled" colours and gave the impression it was from an old video tape, I looked forward to a cleaned up clearer copy. Sadly, however, there doesn't seem to have been any improvement which with the technolgy today I thought might have been possible. Still it is very watchable and a must for those of you who have not seen it before.
Next up are 10 tracks from Germany in 1980 which I anticipated with great excitement as it was on this tour that I first saw Tull. Again, nothing wrong with the performance but the quality this time , as a previous reviewer wrote is poor bootleg quality and deteriorates throughout.
Following a few available tracks from Germany in '82 and 86 disc 2 concentrates on Chile 1996 which is fascinating.Read more ›
It starts back in the early days when Tull were at this little shindig on the Isle of Wight, an infamous festival but one that had plenty of big names playing. It goes through the 1970s era when Tull were at their height then shows some of the things that they have been doing since. Yes, the main members of the group are pushing it a bit by the end, but you have to credit them for that much. Even after over 40 years, they are still active for the most part and this is a good video record of their work.

What is here is excellent, but there must be other footage. Some is old stuff seen before. Let's hope there is to be an Around The World Live 2.Published 7 months ago by Siriismack
My husband is a Tull 'nut', who has always preferred the 'live' stuff. Good quality recordings, good selection covering various stages of the band's career. Read morePublished on 8 Jan. 2014 by Caroline Hamilton
When I was young the music I listened music without video. Now with these videos I can see my favourite Jethro Tull. I'm very happy.Published on 15 Oct. 2013 by Giovanni Sentimenti
Fantastic footage and incredible show of the musicianship of Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull! The Isle of Wight footage alone is worth the relatively inexpensive price of this great... Read morePublished on 29 Sept. 2013 by Aaron F
