4.0 out of 5 stars Chateau D'Isaster ?, 30 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nightcap: The Unreleased Masters 1972-1991 (Audio CD)
For Tull fans this release is an absolute treasure trove of otherwise unreleased gems.
The First Cd is titled "Chateau D'Isaster", I will not go over the history of these tapes, but in musical terms this is far from a disaster but rather a work in progress. It appears that a Passion play would have been a double LP and the concept likely about animals. There is some absolutely brilliant music on this side, some of which will be familiar to those who know Passion play. Of course this isn't a fully polished set, but never the less there is more than a little magic here. Like many LPs of the period it will take more than one listening to get into...but when you do!

I could go through each track but I think you should buy a copy and get to know it without my prejudicialness becoming a factor. All I can really add is that I consider these tapes to be as important as anything released between Aqualung and Warchild, which really was Jethro Tull's most creative period.

Side 2 also contains many gems, but many of these have turned up on the remastered CD's from which they dropped, most as a result of the limited time available on an the old vinyl format. They are not as essential as the "Chateau D'Isaster" side, but still worth listening to.

If you are a Jethro Tull fan, why don't you already have a copy of this set?
If you are just starting to listen to Tull, then this is not the best place to start. I recommend Aqualung to start follwed quickly by most, if not all, of the back catalogue.

CD 1 =5 stars
CD 2 =3 satrs.
