The best Tull lineup live, but CD mastering could be better.
on 29 March 2004
I was always a big fan of this recording when I owned it on vinyl - this Tull lineup is my favourite - Barrie Barlow on drums, Martin and Ian (of course), poor old John Glasscock on bass, David Palmer and John Evans on keyboards...The songs are played well and Ian's banter gives it all a nice atmosphere. There is a range of material, from heavier tracks through to the more folk-inspired material. Having already owned the original CD I was disappointed when I listened to this new re-mastered version - it really isn't much better than the original CD - the re-mastering on Songs from the Wood and Heavy Horses was great, but this just doesn't sound up to scratch - maybe the master tapes are not that great?
If you;re a big Tull fan you have to have this CD in your collection - but if you already own it on CD, you wn't see much imoprovement in sound quality with this remastered version.
