Editorial Reviews

Armed with nothing but a bunch of great tunes and a flute, a ramshackle group of youths launched themselves onto an unsuspecting public in 1968 - and now the key players in their long and illustrious history give, for the first, time, their side of a complex and intriguing story! From the early blues of Mick Abrahams-era, This Was (an early incarnation) to ripping up the Isle of Wight Festival, through their controversial prog pastiches to the minstrel bringing early English folk to a 20th century audience, here is an overdue chance to reassess one of the finest and most controversial names in British music.<P>

From being one of the hottest blues-rock bands of the late-60s to touring with Led Zep to holding the record for the number of consecutive nights at the LA Forum to the first live concert broadcast worldwide to nearly bringing down the GRAMMYs, the life and times of the legendary Jethro Tull is one of the greatest stories in rock! Featuring exclusive new interviews with Ian Anderson, John Evans, Mick Abrahams, Barrie Barlow, Martin Barre, Clive Bunker, Dee Palmer, Glenn Cornick, Dave Pegg, Doane Perry, and Peter-John Vettese -- Packed with unique and rare archive footage and photographs collected from dedicated fans, band members and their families! DVD Extras include: Swing In (a 1969 documentary with extremely rare footage), extended interviews, and 20-page color booklet.

Format: DVD
Great Documentary on Jethro Tull that is a must for all Tull fans. All the materials add up to a bit, but the main documentary is about 1 hr. and 50 minutes, definitely the longest thing I've seen on Tull. This was actually done on their 40th Anniversary in 2008 and has been in release in England since then. Don't know why it took so long to officially release it here in the USA.

Jethro Tull definitely deserves a real, in-depth look at. This, as I said before, so far comes closest. Hard core fans will be disappointed that about half the documentary covers their first 5 years and they spend about a half an hour on the next 35 years. The summary in the end is excellent and best of all, all the former band members get plenty of screen time (in fact, Ian Anderson isn't really properly recognized as the true core until near the end - Dee (David) Palmer sums it up quite nicely saying how there was really no stopping Ian from being successful regardless of whoever he would end up in a band with. His determination, drive and focus are really why we ever had Jethro Tull.

As far as the music, it doesn't disappoint with lots of pieces getting their moment or two in the spotlight and in many ways the lack of the Songs from the Wood/Heavy Horses days on this is made up for with the MSG dvd that was released a few months back. In some ways that dvd along with this one and the Isle of Wight concert give us a good overview of Tull's glory days (1968-1979) and certainly my favorite period. I still wish we had a concert or two from the Aqualung or Thick as a Brick tours, but unfortunately they don't seem to exist (and it is my very personal suspicion that Mr.

Mind you, this is not a stem to stern overview of Tull's recording history. One might think they went from "Too Old to Rock and Roll" to "A," which, needless to say, overlooks some fine albums. Rather, this release gives virtually everyone affiliated with Jethro Tull a part in telling the group's story. They are, as you know or would expect, intelligent and articulate people. John Evan's wry humor is delightful; Dee Palmer's insights are expert and engaging. If this group has been vital to you, as it has been to me, then you'll relish the opportunity to sit down with Mick Abrahams, Martin Barre, Clive Bunker, Glen Cornick, Barriemore Barlow, Dave Pegg, Peter Vetesse, and others involved with the performance and promotion of Jethro Tull. Honestly, I'm moved by the film's closing sequence, when each is given a chance to remark summarily about the group's legacy. I think it's Peter Vetesse who mentions Ian Anderson's sense of 'duty'--a concept not commonly associated with the entertainment industry these days. One reservation, though: since this product obviously isn't intended for the casual fan, it could have been extended in length and substance to become the definitive Tull documentary. It is not, but it's awfully good.

Enjoying this very much. Only disappointment is that there wasn't more of it. Some of their best albums are hardly even mentioned.
A very nice addition to your Tull collection and for anyone interested in progressive rock.

I love the music of Jethro Tull and when I saw this was available from the Classic Artists' series which has various other British bands covered(Yes, for example, which is also most excellent), I HAD to get it. Although once the story unfolds into the 80's, it quckly glosses over from the attention that was given to the first 6 or 7 years, for example, but there's great inputs from past Tull members like Glenn Cornick, Mick Abrahams, Clive Bunker, Barrie Barlow, John Evan and Dee(David) Palmer, and of course, Ian Anderson himself. This is highly recommended for rabid fans of Tull, and could possibly be of interest to casul fans whom are teetering on the edge of becoming full blown fans. There are many clips of classic Tull songs interspersed throughout the duration of the documentary and also some rare concert footage, but its sole purpose is to give an aural-visual history of the band. If you're looking for a concert or videography on the band, I suggest you look elsewhere.

IF YOU ARE A HARD-CORE TULL FAN THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS DVD. IF YOU ARENT THEN YOU WON'T. THIS IS MY 5TH TULL DVD AND THIS IS ONE OF THE VERY BEST.

This is a great documentary about Ian and the lads. Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond, John Evan and others offer their opinions on their turns in the band. Hesitate no longer. Do your self a favor and buy this. Now. Not later.

Had it contained more uninterrupted performances and more older quality footage it would have hit a grand slam especially if they found more "Passion Play" footage. I believe I saw in this DVD about 5 seconds of what might have been a "Passion Play" performance. Understand, in 1973 no other album and tour was hotter than this one, in fact it set new concert records for selling out major arenas across the United States. With this historic moment in time, it seems, nobody had the eyesight, insight and foresight to capture one full performance on quality audio/video equipment. What's a Tull fan to do? This DVD does tell details of the bands history and past band members through very good interviews. This makes the DVD well worth it!

This appears to be both discs from the UK version combined onto one DVD. The main feature is 109 minutes, but the bonus features are listed as 91 minutes. The 1969 documentary (which is amazing) is included.
