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. ...

Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1992 live album. Following three harder-rocking albums (Crest Of Knave, Rock Island and Catfish Rising), A Little Light Music takes a step back into a relaxing semi-acoustic setting, documenting that year's summer European shows. Joining leader Ian Anderson, guitarist Martin Barre and bassist Dave Pegg is temporary drummer Dave Mattacks (Fairport Convention). Features 17 tracks, including classics like ''Locomotive Breath'', ''Living In The Past'', ''John Barleycorn'', ''Bouree'' and more. EMI.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Lighted Stage and A Load of Great Songs December 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
A Little Light Music is a cool Jethro Tull concert experience that mostly redefines the songs rather than attempts to replicate them verbatim. I don't view the songs as truly 'unplugged ' versions, but rather slightly more toned down performances that come off sounding a little more intimate than your usual big hall concert presentations. Then again some do rock out, like This is Not Love and A New Day Yesterday for example, but then it's always good to have some variation of mood and tempo or it could all come off sounding like one long Kraftwerk song. In fact the rocking middle section that explodes from out of the otherwise quiet performance of From a Dead Beat to An Old Greaser is one of the many highlights for me on this record. Some songs are taken through an instrumental variation, either completely or partially, like the new acoustic instrumental introduction to Too Old to Rock and Roll, but the band always manage to carry off these changes with their usual professional charm, finesse, and playfulness. Even though the songs have been slightly altered they still feel just as warm and comfortable as a sweater pulled fresh from the dryer. The one new track, a Jethro Tulled version of John Barleycorn, is of course excellent. What a surprise, eh?

I have to admit that I prefer this live recording to the Bursting Out record, due to the playful variations presented here, and also for the inspired song selections. One White Duck has always been a favorite, and although that song doesn't sound too different from the studio version, as presented here the mood of the song is slightly more eloquent (at least it is to my delicately old and worn down ears.)

I've been listening to Tull since the early '70s, in concert since the mid '80s, own about 30 Tull albums and CDs, and this is the coolest CD around. It's about as close to "Tull Unplugged" as you'll get. Not all of the pieces are acoustic, but many of them are.

Some groups are studio groups, and Ian Anderson & Co. do okay there, but these guys are performers first and foremost, and excellent anywhere. I love the bits in between songs where Anderson talks to the audience. "Rocks in the Road"s flute solo at the end is rock anthem quality. Most of us expect that from Ian. And Martin Barre offers his usual solid guitar presence, both electric and acoustic. David Pegg on bass is groovy throughout and seems to have the audiences by the heart. And this CD has the best version of "Bouree" out there.

I notice that XM Radio "Eclectic Rock" runs these cuts (along with Anderson's "Divinities" solo work) quite a bit. Sure, the songs individually are great but this album really shines when you have time to enjoy the whole experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tull Unplugged November 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Jethro Tull showcase their folksy side on this live CD, in which the majority of the tracks are played acoustic or semi-acoustic. For those of you who get tired of mid-70s Tull's long and cheesy keyboard solos this CD is a must-buy: the numbers are short, musicianship superb and pared-down sound truly kind on the ears. Dave Pegg plays outstanding bass and mandolin while the drummer cum glockenspeil player (whose name I forget) also makes the most of a very basic kit (a bass drum, a snare and a cymbol by the sound of it). To my ears, this CD is one of the few that truly doesn't have a bad song on it. Highlights include instrumentals Under Wraps & Bouree, and Ian in fine voice on Rocks on the Road & John Barleycorn. Still I shouldn't overplay the 'easy listening' side of the album - Martin Barre rocks out on several numbers (Locomotive Breath, Pussy Willow), and Ian's flute takes off like a rocket throughout. This disc is a must buy for all Tull fans, and a great introduction for those who want to insert themselves at the shallow end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! December 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Not sure I would refer to this as the "best 'live' album ever", but I sure wish Ian would do a remaster on this one, and make it more available. This is far better than "Bursting Out" or "Live at Hammersmith". Definitely the best "live" TULL CD ever.

Traffic still does a much better version of "John Barleycorn" but all other cuts are top notch and have the boys in fine form. Ahhhhh---when will we ever get a new Tull studio album. Based on the excellent recent solo releaes by both Ian and Martin, we shouldn't hold our breath.

If you really enjoy Tull's music, you definitely need to pick up "A Little Light Music". You won't regret it.

Since when have the critics been right about Tull anyway? Listen to what their fans say about this release!

I am not a huge fan or live albums, so when I set out on a quest years ago to get all of Jethro Tull's albums, "Bursting Out" and this one were pretty low on the totem pole. What a mistake, as another reviewer stated, this is not only the best Tull live album, but possibly the best live album of all time. Jethro Tull continue to amaze fans by livening up classics like "Locomotive Breath" and "A Christmas Song", throwing in some new "classics" like "Rocks on the Road" and "This is not Love", and giving us some fantastic instrumental versions of such great songs as "Liviing in the Past" and "Under Wraps". My personal favorite is the beautiful acoustic version of "Pussy Willow". If you are a Tull fan, you have to own this record. (...)

This is a replacement CD, so I already knew I loved it. If you are looking for something that gives you a great cross section of Tull, then this is a good CD for you.
