Editorial Reviews

Special two CD edition of this holiday release from the veteran Rockers featuring the original Jethro Tull Christmas Album (2003) plus the more recent recording Jethro Tull - Live At St Brides. Last Christmas, Jethro Tull performed and recorded a live concert at St Bride's Church in London. The profits from all tickets sold for the service, went to The Connection at St Martins, a charitable facility for the care of London's homeless community. Ian Anderson's view is that "we all have a duty of care and responsibility to help the less fortunate." EMI.

Biography

Early in 1968, a group of young British musicians, born from the ashes of various failed regional bands gathered together in hunger, destitution and modest optimism in Luton, North of London. With a common love of Blues and an appreciation, between them, of various other music forms, they started to win over a small but enthusiastic audience in the various pubs and clubs of Southern England. ...

This produces a very original effect, one I personally find mesmorizing.

The original tunes are great, the remakes are very tastefully done and the classical/traditional holiday tunes are masterfully arranged into Ian Anderson creations.
Rick Langdon
My son-in-law is a not a big fan of Christmas music, however he does love Jethro Tull as do I. We ordered this for him and he really really likes it.

If you are a fan of Tull's 70's albums, specifically the more acoustic leaning "Songs From the Wood", then you will LOVE this disk. It's almost as if Ian Anderson and company travelled back three decades and tapped into a sound all but lost with today's over-produced, and under-performed music. Songs like "Jack Frost", "Pavane" and "Last Man" could all have easily been inserted into earlier Tull disks like "Benefit" or "Minstrel In the Gallery". The forgotten classics included here; "Weathercock" and "Another Christmas Song" have been slightly updated, and are nice to re-visit. If you are tired of being beaten over the head with an Ashlee Simpson-Clay Aiken Christmas, then treat yourself to a group of real musicians, real songwriters doing what they do best. This is one Christmas album you won't want to put away after the holidays, and one that sounds just as good in July.

In spite of the fact that this is a Christmas album (i typically loath christmas music), this is still hands down some of the best Tull since Heavy Horses. I've heard the phrase "return to form" applied to some of their efforts since the mid eighties, but here, it actually can be said. The whole disc has that same shimmering, woodsy, seventies feel that Songs from the Wood and Horses had, those two albums being my favorite Tull discs and I get the impression I'm not the only one. Besides the great arrangments, one other thing is shockingly apparent - Ian has regained almost all of the timbre and range of his younger days. His unique qualities as you may know were robbed by throat problems around '84. Well, it's almost back to full steam here. There's even some of the great layered vocal arrangments with Ian harmonizing with himself, as he did on the late seventies albums, from bass to tenor. This produces a very original effect, one I personally find mesmorizing. I think I speak for legions of Jethro Tull fans when I say, thank god, and hopefully this is a signpost of things to come. I would love to see a couple more albums in this vein (not Christmas, but this style), it has the sound that made me love Tull to begin with. A whimsical, hypnotic disc. If you like Jethro Tull, pick it up - I can't understand how you could be dissapointed.

The holidays have gotten even brighter with Jethro Tull's marvelous offering for this time of year, "The Jethro Tull Christmas Album." Ian Anderson & company serve up a hearty yuletide blend of new Tull Christmas originals, including the terrific "Birthday Card At Christmas," "Last Man At The Party," and "First Snow On Brooklyn," as well as new re-recordings of old holiday-themed Tull favorites like "A Christmas Song," "Another Christmas Song," "Ring Out Solstice Bells," and the signature Tull tune, "Bouree." Along with that classic instrumental, the band give us some more wonderful instrumental tracks, like the brilliant jazz take on "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," "Pavane," "Greensleeved," and the beautiful closer, "A Winter Snowscape." The band play brilliantly, and Anderson's voice and flute are still in pristine form. "The Jethro Tull Christmas Album" is a magnificent gift from one of rock's most enduring acts. Happy holidays from Jethro Tull!

Should you pursue this for the second disc: "Jethro Tull Live/Christmas at St. Bride's 2008"? I must qualify my opinion: I collect both Jethro Tull and select Christmas recordings, so this issue should be a "can't miss" for me--and it is. The St. Bride's disc alternates between gorgeously rendered Tull offerings, tasteful St. Bride's choir pieces (four voices:quaint and charming), and select seasonal readings. Ian reads an excerpt from Walter Scott's "Marmion," and his son-in-law (on the occasion of his wife's birthday) reads a piece called "Christmas." "The Ballad of the Breadman," though, is especially provocative. A surreal moment? How about when Tull plays "God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman" for the offertory, and it's interrupted for a blessing?

The set is tastefully packaged. Gone are the lyrics from the original "Christmas Album," but Ian and the reverend of St. Bride's contribute essays dated August 2009. This may be the only time the Tull lineup of Anderson, Barre, O'Hara, Goodier, and Duncan is recorded on a commercially available disc; if so, I would say it carries on a remarkable legacy most suitably. At the time of this posting, English "Marketplace" merchants are offering the collection for under twenty dollars, and mine arrived in seven days. Don't hesitate to buy it.

Ever since Songs From The Wood there has been something about the music of Jethro Tull that has more often than not felt akin to the moods and sentimentality of the winter holidays. In fact I have always wondered why a Jethro Tull Christmas Album hadn't happened before now, although in retrospect I am thankful it didn't. While I have always enjoyed Ian Anderson's singing, even through some of the rougher moments of recent years, it has been reemerging again of late into the voice of old over the past couple years and with this release it can be safely stated that he has regained that voice back in full throttle and then some. And while the singing has never been better it's equally matched by the skill of the musicians and the quality of the music, all of which is classic Tull dressed up in a Kris Kringle costume. Listening to this disc you can almost smell the pine and feel the warmth of a fire crackling while outside the snow gently covers the ground in a white blanket on the eve of that one particular December eve.
Do I rave because I'm a Jethro Tull fan and therefore apt to like whatever is released under that moniker?
To some degree perhaps I do. Although I can say that there are a couple--not many--but a couple of releases by Jethro Tull that I'm not exceptionally fond of, so I don't tend to praise simply because it wears the name "Jethro Tull" on the cover. And then again pretty much anyone reading these reviews are probably already Jethro Tull fans anyway so my slant here isn't to say that you should buy it because the music is great, because if you already enjoy the Tull you probably already know that this is going to be of that same high quality style of musicality that we've grown to love and expect over the years.
