Product Description

Product Description

Concert outing for The Tull - one of the most successful British acts of all time. In 2003 the band made its first (and so far only) visit to the Montreux Festival. Split into a semi-acoustic first half and a full on electric second half, the concert was a triumph combining newer songs such as 'Dot Com', 'Pavane' and 'Budapest' with classic favourites like 'Aqualung' and 'Locomotive Breath'. As ever Ian Anderson leads from the front with his instantly recognizable voice and inimitable style of one-legged flute playing.

We've been waiting 20 odd years for this! Why Ian has to ruin the viewing of previous DVD releases by putting interview segments between the songs only he knows ..... Hopefully the success of this DVD will show him the error of his ways!

The first half of the concert is mostly acoustic songs and instrumentals - in the midst of which the hard rocking 'Hunting Girl' sits a little incongruously, but is nonetheless (for me) the highlight of the concert. Although not listed, the set ends with the usual brief segment of Protect & Survive (with balloons) and Cheerio.

My only gripe is that, according to ministry of information, the concert included the Songs from the Wood/Too old to Rock & Roll/Heavy Horses medley that was a mainstay of the setlist at the time. Maybe it wasn't played? But in any case, it would have rounded the concert off much better. You just feel something is missing without those 3 classics ....

Now, if Ian's reading this - get out a torch, brush away the cobwebs, delve into the deepest, darkest corner of your cellar, and find us the tapes of a gig from the mid or late 70s to release as a 40th anniversary pressie. Go on, you know you want to!

At last an up to date LIVE Tull DVD, with no distractions just the whole concert with no annoying extras bolted on in superb 5.1 sound. This is the one to buy if you want a no nonsense record of recent jethro tull live with a good variety of tracks, ones that stand out are 'With you there to help me' which is one of the best tracks on the DVD also 'Budapest' and 'Beside myself' being some of the newer featured tracks as well as a selection of IA solo tracks and a few from the Christmas album, Martin also gets a chance to perform one of his solo tracks (Empty Cafe) overall an essential DVD purchase. Look out for the blooper in the encore track ' Locomotive Breath' which also gives Martin a smile.

I'm so glad that eagle vision have decided to release the 'Live in Montreux' series in HD (I also own the Tori Amos DVD from the series). The picture quality is excellent, as is the sound. A large percentage of my CD/DVD collection consists of 70's rock bands; from Black Sabbath through to Yes. The problem is that only a handful of these bands are still going and lets face it some should have hung there instruments up over a decade ago....

Not so with Ian Anderson and co. Like many other bands of the era they've gone through many personnel changes over the years (Only Anderson and Barre are here from the early line up) but once you sit down and press play it doesn't seem to matter. Regarding song choice, admittedly I always crave more of the earlier classic stuff but I guess you have to have a good mix to cover a somewhat lengthy career - Living in the Past, Aqualung and Locomotive Breath are all present and correct to satisfy the nostalgic amongst us. What strikes me most about watching this gig is how tight the band are. The arrangements are fantastic and the musicianship is second to none. Mr Anderson jigs around (almost) as nimbly as he ever did and the DVD seems to have captured the feeling of energy perfectly. If you have a Blu Ray player and can stretch the budget a bit, it's well worth the extra cash.

With reference to Prospect, the second half of this show was broadcast on Swiss TV some years ago, and is excellent quality. I was hoping with this release to be able to have the complete concert but alas, I can confirm that "Songs from the Wood/Too old to Rock & Roll/Heavy Horses" medley were included on the broadcast from swiss TV, so why are they not included on this release? This release will now suppliment the TV broadcast instead of replacing it! I agree with his comments about the "Nothing Is Easy" DVD of the Isle of Wight where Ian kept interrupting the flow of songs, this was extremely annoying, so much so that I created my own copy with all the interviews edited out and placed at the end separately. I will have to double check to see if any other songs are missing from this release. Maybe they had to cut back without having to make this a 2DVD release and give us the COMPLETE concert instead of what will fit onto one DVD.
Certainly not impressed

The quality of this DVD is first class. The way it is filmed, the sound and the editing make it well worth buying. Many previous Tull DVD's sufferered from over production with songs cut off before the end and interviews wrongly placed between exerts from concerts. We have waited a long time for a DVD in which we see a concert as it was, BRILLIANT

As a long time fan of Jethro Tull (since 1969) and having seen them many times and introduced many friends to their musical good taste, then it comes as a bit of a disappointment to tell you that, this was a little bit of a let down. The band are in good fettle, although sadly, Ian himself was vocally, sounding a little tired. The set list wasn't particularly inspired either, although with a band that's been going for as long as they have, it must be difficult to choose what to play and inevitably some people will be as disappointed as I was. Nothing from 'A', 'Stormwatch', 'Heavy Horses' or 'Broadsword and the Beast' for example, which for me, is among the very finest of their (or anybody else's!) musical art. Some songs from their other albums are also indispensable too.

If you've already purchased the Jethro Tull DVD of 'Living With The Past' (from the same era), then that's an altogether better DVD, with good extras, even though some of the same tracks (and the same clothes), make an appearance, you do, at least get an acoustic set with the former members of Tull as well. So musically more interesting too.

Still, it's good to have them on Blu-Ray, but come on lads a bit of extra rehearsal and a nice long Blu-Ray covering more of the back catalogue to show the youngsters what a great band should sound like would be nice!

So till then 'Cheerio'.
