Editorial Reviews

2008 sees Jethro Tull celebrate their 40th Anniversary, a landmark achievement for any rock band but even more so when you consider that Tull have been constantly active throughout that period with tours and studio albums and are one of the most globally successful British acts of all time. This new DVD release brings together Jethro Tull live performances filmed in Germany over a period of time. The main concert comes from 1982 with further material from 1986. As an added bonus we have two tracks each from 1993 and 1970/71. The release is fully approved by Ian Anderson and the packaging features photographs from his personal archive

TRACK LISTING Rockpop In Concert 1982 1) Hard Times 2) Pussy Willow 3) Heavy Horses 4) Jack In The Green 5) Keyboard Solo 6) Sweet Dreams 7) Aqualung 8) Locomotive Breath 9) Cheerio Rocksummer 1986 10) Hunting Girl Out In The Green 1986 11) Thick As A Brick 12) Black Sunday 13) Improvisation II 14) Too Old To Rock'n'Roll, Too Young To Die Live In Germany 1993 15) My Sunday Feeling 16) So Much Trouble Beat Club 1970/71 17) With You There To Help Me 18) Nothing Is Easy

Format:DVD
This is a nice video for a Tull fan, although it seems odd they would release this when there's no official DVD of their classic golden age throughout the 70s! Despite the "1970-1993" subtitle, most of this DVD comes from the mid-80s Tull with Peter Vettese on keys.
The first 1/2 or so is a show from the Broadsword & The Beast tour. Sadly, despite Ian's liner notes of the elaborate pirate ship stage show, this (and the rest of the disc) has no stage "show" to speak of save musicians playing instruments. The set list (although abbreviated - only about 7 proper songs) is a nice mix of then-new, classic early 70's, and (a treat for us fans who've missed this material in recent Tull performances) some gems from the late 70's. Ian's voice was still great. Martin's guitar is rather shreddingly metal. Gerry Conway's rather basic drumming on the new material is countered with some nice playing on the classic stuff - he adds his own percussive touch to Heavy Horses, not Barrie Barlow but fine drumming nonetheless. Peter Vettese gets a chance to show off his chops in an extended keyboard solo, which is welcome. Dave Pegg, of course, is there to provide his excellent bass skills and some backing vocals. A note - I'm pretty sure it's an abridged version of Heavy Horses, though! There is a nice instrumental jam of "Black sunday" at the end of the show.
The next batch of performances come from a few years later: 1986, where Gerry Conway has been replaced on drums by Doane Perry (who would go on, with a few breaks, to be Tull's longest-standing drummer). The real shock here is how much Ian's voice has deteriorated - unfortunately Tull's least popular album "Under Wraps" also strained Ian's voice (he's never been the same since, although sometimes better than others).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is great June 19, 2008
Format:DVD
This dvd of Jethro Tull live in Germany is, in a word, GREAT. This contains some of the clearest footage of Tull in concert I have ever seen.
And what a treat to see the "Broadsword and the Beast" era Tull on a concert video.And the sound..well, it's very clear and precise, and what more could a Tull fan ask for? In my opinion, the footage of the Broadsword tour is worth the price alone. Highly recommended to any Jethro Tull fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1982 Tour video May 9, 2008
Format:DVD
I own this on VHS and converted it to DVD. An excellent show from German TV in 1982 with multi camera angles, etc. The Broadsword LP live. Eventually I'll probably buy the official release to make up for the mediocre quality my VHS had. Any Tull fan will be happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Band June 19, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This "Jack in the Green" DVD was filmed in Germany at various times over a 20 year period, and manages to capture a fantastic band playing some of their best music.

The audio and video quality is surprisingly good for the time period in which it was shot. Tull's front man, Ian Anderson, is full of energy and his voice is strong (something that later became a problem for him). He is a truly amazing performer, and is in rare form on this disc. Martin Barre, Tull's lead guitar player, is also featured and, once again, displays that he is one of the underrated guitarists of all time.

Jethro Tull has always been very popular in Germany, and the shows reflect their enthusiasm for playing there and the fans' appreciation for the band.

This is definitely worth a purchase, because you will want to watch it again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close, but no cigar December 7, 2008
By JP
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For years I have been waiting for a good DVD of the classic Jethro Tull to be released. And, while this comes close, I'm still waiting. But at least it's not an example of the worst of the type - you know what I'm talking about, a classic band releases a concert DVD and you check it out only to find it's one or two original members and a bunch of young guys you've never heard of and it was recorded 6 MONTHS AGO!!! I hate that, especially since you KNOW there is classic footage of said band available!! And yes, I know the 1970 Isle of Wight concert is available but, to me, it's not true classic Tull either, it's just a little TOO early.

Jack in the Green is a pretty good Jethro Tull live DVD, but don't let the "recorded between 1970 - 1993" fool you. The overwhelming majority of this DVD is from the 1980s, you get exactly one song from 1970 and one song from 1971.

The largest part is the 1982 RockPop concert that has been available in bootleg and import versions for over 25 years. But it is a pretty good set list (Hard Time, Heavy Horses, Sweet Dream, Aqualung and Locomotive Breath) and you do get a pristine copy with excellent video and your choice of DTS or Dolby 5.1.

You also get `Hunting Girl' from 1986 and 4 songs from a different 1986 concert, including a Thick as a Brick medley that is slightly different from the usual 13 minute version that we usually get (Bursting Out, Essential, etc) and a version of `Black Sunday' that is superior to the one that opens the movie Slipstream.

So, in my opinion, this is probably the best Jethro Tull that is currently available on DVD, if you are looking for something a little more than 3-4 years old. (And I won't even mention the `New Day Yesterday' DVD.

The DVD was great because it looked back at the beginning and worked its way up to 1990's. The times were blended together. I've seen Jethro Tull 3 times in my life time. Read more

where's the golden age Tull on DVD?
The sad fact is there is no professional footage of their heyday in terms of full, or, most of concerts. In specific people seem to wonder where is the film of the Aqualung, specifically Thick as a Brick, A Passion Play, War Child tours. Sorry, does not exist save for highly dodgy film very... Read more
