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. ...

JETHRO TULL Living In The Past CD

Customer Reviews

So I started buying the old JT CDs and am really enjoying discovering them again.
G. M. Scott
If your just getting into Tull, try and get a copy with "Alive and well and Living in" which was on the original U.K. version and now the remastered Benefit CD.
J. Miller
It's a great album, definitely one of Jethro Tull's five best (at least), and you'll want these tracks collected together.

Jethro Tull Fans & consumers BEWARE!! There have been several misleading "Reviews" offered up about this album. BE CAREFUL about which version you are trying to buy.

I've been a Tull fan since about 1972 (when I was in High School); my first Tull LP purchases were "Thick as a Brick" and then "Living in the Past".

When the Tull CD's first came out, I bought almost all of them (naturally), and am now in the process of replacing my earlier versions with the newer "Remixed/Remastered" versions. However, I had bought the U.S. version of "Living in the Past", and chose not to buy the much more expensive "Gold CD"/"Mobile Fidelity" versions; these versions are, however, more "complete" in that they do include all of the tracks from the original 1972 vinyl release.

Many have noted that the one-CD versions of "Living in the Past" have deleted various tracks from the original '72 vinyl release due to "time constrictions", to keep things to one CD. These versions generally do add a track not found in the original ("Inside", from BENEFIT).

However, I recently purchased the UK Import version of "Living in the Past", after reading one of the reviews WHICH SHOULD ONLY HAVE APPLIED TO THE "GOLD CD"/MOBILE FIDELITY version, as it stated that "this is the only complete version available", etc.

Instead, *there are differences in the tracks* between the UK Import version and the apparently now-out-of-print US version (which I already had).

Here are the differences: BOTH one-CD versions (US & UK) omit "Bouree" and "Teacher"; this is not a terribly great loss to most Tull fans, as any Tull fan will probably have these previously-released tracks on another CD--although these are two of Tull's best songs!

Yes, there are a few different versions of "Living in the Past" floating around, and I still have the original LP from which I can compare them all. I own the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, 2-disc, Original Master Recording UltraDiscII GOLD CD and it is the ONLY COMPLETE VERSION CURRENTLY AVAILABLE! With a grand total of 23 tracks, not to mention a faithful reproduction of the 35 page booklet included in the original album, this version has sonic quality far superior to any "CD" version you will ever hear. This is as close as you'll get to listening to the orginal "LP" on the finest turntable system. It's obvious that great care was taken when this package was put together, from the remastering to the detail that went into the booklet and packaging. In fact, it is probably the best sounding MFSL CD that I own, and I have quite a few. So, from one "Tull Fan" to another, this is the definitive version. I realize that it's likely to set you back few bucks (I've seen some of the prices!), but if you can find it, BUY IT! It's a worthy investment.

If your just getting into Tull, try and get a copy with "Alive and well and Living in" which was on the original U.K. version and now the remastered Benefit CD. Don't worry about getting:
1.Bouree
2.Teacher
3.Locomotive breath(U.K. release)
4.Hymn 43(U.S. release)
They are all excellent songs but if you start to like Living In The Past you can get these songs on other great albums, which is really a much better way to hear them.

I first started listening to Jethro Tull in High School. Being part of the band geek community, my friends and I would spend any free time we had before or after school in the band room playing or listening to music.

This is one of the first albums I heard from them, along with "Songs from the Wood" and "Thick as a Brick"(besides Aqualung from classic rock radio).
This is the first music I ever heard with incredible ecclecticism in style and instrumentation, but not disparate sounding, from acoustic guitar and toy piano(Just trying to be),to heavy rock guitar and flute and tablas(Love Story).
From mandolin, whistle and strings(Christmas Story),
to a pop rock song with a clave and bass intro in 5/4(holy crap!).
From songs about the well told tale of touring woes(Driving Song), to discontent with holiday excess(Christmas Song).
From a simple thank you(Nursie), to cynical commentary on society(Wond'ring again).
From aimless lovelorn wandering (Singing all day),
to the beauty of realizing "that life is a long song, but the tune ends to soon for us all."

This album is filled with some of the best Tull songs from any of their various eras.

This effort includes some of Ian Anderson's finest ballads.

I personally like the acoustic side of Jethro Tull as well as the electric side with Bartin Barre on the guitar.

For acoustic music this is probably Ian Anderson's finest hour.

Christmas song has always been one of my favorites, "Hey Santa pass us that bottle". He talks about how Christmas is not really celebrated right and how people use Christmas as an excuse to party. "The Christmas spirit is not what you drink"

This to me sums up the way we celebrate Christmas or at least many of us.

Life is a long song, and Going up the pool. Are two excellant acoustic songs.

Dr Bodgenbroom, for later and Nursie also show the acoustic side as well.

Some people complain that Teacher and Bouree are not on some collections. Personally I dont like to "re-buy" songs when I get a new album. I would rather have two new songs like this CD gives you. If you want Teacher or Bouree, get Stand up or Benefit. This is another album that has stood the test of time, in my mind the greatest test there is...........enjoy
