Having seen the great TAAB shows in Gateshead and Amsterdam I was really looking forward to seeing this concert on DVD and I am equally impressed. The sound quality is excellent and the first part of the show (TAAB1) brings back great memories from the 70's.
As followers of Ian Anderson/Tull will appreciate, Ian's voice isn't what it was a few years ago but this does not detract from the quality of the show. To me, Ian's vocals are noticably better on the second part (TAAB2) and the excellent musicianship from each band member continues practically note perfect. A great live DVD. I just want Ian Anderson to go on and on......how about Homo Erraticus 2 followed up by a DVD similar to this one?

My first ever review on Amazon. I'm so impressed by this it had to be done. Ian Anderson and the tightest band you'll ever see or hear, perform the classic JethroTull Thick As A Brick plus Ian Anderson's TAAB2 in their entirety.

Not a bum note anywhere. Superb theatrics from IA and a few surprises along the way.

I have a s*** hot hifi and cinema system and many live concerts leave me unimpressed. Not this. Sound quality is stunning. As good as it gets. Trust me.

If you like Tull you just have to get this

Brilliant fun. Ian Anderson has put together a superb band which is NOT his usual Jethro Tull suspects. They use original instruments, which adds added authenticity. Anderson supplements his vocals with those of a younger, fitter model, who both acts and sings superbly. It's a good fit. I get slightly irritated by how much rubato Ian Anderson uses as he sings but one gets used to it. I've always enjoyed his composing and his ability on flute and guitars small and large.
For me the revelation was Thick as a Brick 2, which I had never heard. This, like its original predecessor is a pastiche, parody, call it what you will, except this time there are references to TAAB 1, which are funny. Lovely comic audience bits, fabulous sound and recording.
My review is of the Blu Ray disc which is just fabulous with its HD Master track and clear vision.

Picture and sound quality of the bluray are excellent.
Ian Anderson is looking his age, and his voice is not really up to the job any more - some of the more stretching notes he is just unable to reach, or they sound strained. Fortunately he has a younger supporting vocalist, who has a similar pitch and sound to his voice, but who sings very well, can reach all the notes that IA can, and who delivers the songs very well. In fact, he is excellent.
Have seen the band live, albeit over 20 years ago, and TAAB was old even then. But it still works!
The audience seemed remarkably restrained, so at times it sounds more like a concert performed in a studio, but enjoyable nonetheless.
If you don't like JT, or don't know if you do, then don't bother. If you do, and/or if you know and like this album, then you will most likely enjoy this bluray recording. It was not expensive, so while it is not must-have stuff, I am happy to own it, and will will watch and listen again.

Standard Definition in 2014 isn't acceptable. Even smart phones these days shoot HD. Why release a Blu-Ray that has only standard definition picture quality - soft and with interlacing comb effects on distant shots of movement? The concert itself is excellent, although I could have done without the "Dame Edna" corny audience interaction on prostate cancer, he embarrassingly amateur video footage and the drum solo. Fortunately the DTS 5.1 audio makes this worth purchasing - it's a superb recording of a great performance. Unlike others I didn't have a problem with Ian Anderson's vocal performance, but I felt the second singer added for the performance was too quiet in the mix and do got lost. I'd have preferred Anderson even if he hasn't got the vocal range he used to have.

This is a very good deal-you get to hear two albums in their entirety for a low price! A lot of excellent music done live in concert. I don't miss Jethro Tull because he can do more diverse types of music.

I have been following Jethro Tull/Ian Anderson for ages, the past couple of years have been quite amazing, especially remastering and plenty of box sets, Thick As A Brick box set, T.A.A.B 2 box set, "A Passion Play" 4 disc set, a couple of years ago add Aqualung
5 disc set, Ian's latest studio album, and now T.A.A.B. 1 & 2 in their entirety. By the looks of Ian Anderson has been quite a busy man.
I for one enjoy everything, to have the above 2 albums back to back must have been a hell of a lot of hard work. It's a great sounding concert with the usual silly things thrown in for good measure? I will let you decide, all in all a great concert, as we all perhaps know by now Ian's voice at times does struggle, so we have another singer who can sing Ian's difficult parts, with ease but i guess it's still
not quite the same. If you are a fan of either i would highly recommend the concert.
