A great album of (mostly) acoustic guitar, mixing a small amount of new with some incredibly intricate and fresh-sounding versions of old favorites.
Surely this pushes Martin Lancelot Barre into the limelight at last, and proves beyond all doubt that he is one of the greatest guitarists of the last 50 years. And what support he has on here too...
Yep, if you're a Tull fan, or if you just love perfectly executed acoustic picking, you'll like this.

Excellent guitar work from the ex-Jethro Tull axe-man, Mr. Martin Lancelot Barre.
Great mix of Tull's classic and new accoustic works.
Best effort from the Tull's camp since Ian Anderson's The Secret Language Of Birds.
Head and shoulders above market hype called Thick As A Brick 2.
Highly recommended!

Do you remember your first impressions from the albums by Jethro Tull of the 70s - flute, acoustic guitar, sometimes - riffs and solos? Minstrel in the Gallery, Songs From the Woods, Heavy Horses... At last you could experience this unique sound once more. Martin Barre re-arranged his favourite songs by Jethro Tull and made them a part of his new compostions. Attempt to reinvent music by Jethro Tull and to present his own new music in the same time. The album is mainly instrumental, mainly with acoustic sound (Martin plays guitars and flute), electric guitar solos by Martin are rare but impressive. Much positive energy - so I can't see any reason not to listen to it if you like classic Jethro Tull.
Thank you for the great record, Martin - and it's really a crime that Martin Barre is not present on last album by Jerhro Tull's Ian Anderson!

This is an excellent body of work from a real expert guitarist. He was always laid back with Ian Anderson and IT and this comes through in this album. The acoustics tracks are brilliant,I could listen to him all night. Highly recommended

Martin's take on Jethro Tull songs mixed in with some new material of his own. The new material is presented in such a way as to blend in seamlessly and, even enhance, the feeling and textures of the previously released material. The melodies are beautiful, and while I would have liked some more aggressive guitar tones, it is hard to complain with this tasteful offering by one rocks most influential and perhaps, under-appreciated guitar masters. With the holidays coming up, this offering would make a wonderful gift for anyone on your shopping list who is either a fan of Jethro Tull or those with a passion for very tasteful guitar.

Simply poor compared with Martin Barres other works. The tracks are revivals of old favourites but the guitar alone cannot pick out the mood of the original track which have a multi mix of instruments. The forward button on my player was pressed several times to skip the noise. Recommended as a collection filler only.

The title of this beautiful instrumental CD describes best what you get: all tracks carry the musical essence of a selection of beautiful Jethro Tull songs. All of these songs are musically 'wrapped" in Martin Barre's own compositions. A great CD !
Waiting for more Barre records ...

Martin at his best, very nice idea to mix Tull music with his productions.
Excellent choice and wonderful performance, listening is great pleasure, I think not only for Tull fans.

Probably for Jethro Tull fans generally. Nice easy listen but vast majority are instrumentals. Just shows off what an excellent guitarist Martin is.
