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.

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!
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.
Certainly not impressed
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'.
