Arranging and representing the Tull songs,featured on this album became a very pleasant and rewarding task.These lesser known songs have always been amongst my favourite pieces of music and reworking them brought back many good memories.I have written the rest of the music,so hopefully with sympathy and taste.Composing and rearranging is my passion,and bringing together the many acoustic instruments was a delight for me,but of course,the electric guitar,couldn't be totally left out of the picture!Most of the work was just myself and engineer James Bragg,and we had a huge amount of enjoyment every day in the studio.I hope you enjoy the results of this project as much as we did! Featured musicians,Martin Barre-Acoustic/Classic/Electric Guitars,Bouzouki,Mandolin,Bass,Flute & Bass Clarinet,Dan Crisp-Vocals,Frank Mead-Blackwood Flute,Whistles Bodhran,Blues Harp,Jonathan Noyce-Bass,George Lindsay-Drums & Percussion,James Bragg-Engineered,Mixed & Mastered.

Martin "Lancelot" Barre, is one of the best guitarist of the music world. ( He was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on 'Aqualung'. ) You can find his creativity and musical genious, every Jethro Tull album.
Also, in this album, he is very good "Flut player" ( sorry Ian ..! )
Martin, re-arranged and represented his favorite TULL songs in this album.
( My very favorite Tull songs; "Moths", "Hymn 43", "From A Dead Beat To An Old Greaser", "Requiem", "Home".. )
And the new Martin song; "Sundown" is great...
No more words....
Highly recommended for "Guitar Lovers"...
TULLIAN's must buy...
Thank you Martin.
Best wishes from Istanbul.
From here on there's an excellent version of 'Deadbeat to an old Greaser', 'Protect and Survive' and it ends with a brilliant track called 'Sundown' which is a new Barre composition and much more in the rock/prog vein of Jethro Tull.
To be honest, I really wanted to hear more of Barre's riffing on electric guitar, but this is clearly a very personal project and Barre's own composition work very well alongside the Tull material. This isn't for everyone, but Tull fans should enjoy it. I hope to see more of Barre's own material on his next album.
My initial scepticism was slowly worn away though, as I went about whatever I was doing and the beautiful playing of Mr Barre began to really shine through.
I'm a heavy metal fan, but Tull are my favourite band so it's quite the compliment to say certain pieces here are actually BETTER than the Tull versions. "Pussy Willow" for one. It's stunning here - Martin's arrangement is fantastic and it opens up the song in new ways, as do many of the other tracks here.
I must admit to a little disappointment - when I share Tull videos on Facebook it's invariably "Minstrel in the Gallery" because the blistering guitar intro is just incredible. And, when I saw Tull live on the most recent occasion, even my wife, who is no big guitar (or Tull) fan was raving about the wee old guy who absolutely ripped on the guitar! So...I'd really, really love to hear something in a heavier vein - Martin's old black Hamer Sunburst cranked through a Marshall I mean, rather than the good but somewhat staid "Stage Left".
However, that doesn't take away from this release which is, honestly, fantastic and a lot better than I'd expected it to be. I really wish he'd come to Glasgow, I'd love to see these pieces performed live. Martin? Come to Glasgow!
