Jethro Tull rocks!
Stephen Bertino
I've always thought those who purchase "best of" collections are more or less casual fans at best.
J. Lindner
Fat Man has always been one of my favorite JT songs.

M.U. The Best of is the first Jethro Tull album I bought after reading that one of my favorite heavy metal bands was greatly influenced by them. As soon as I heard the first track "Teacher", I was hooked. I loved the overall sound of the record and Ian Anderson's voice was terrific during this time. Very smooth and lower than on later albums. "Rainbow Blues" is a wonderful number with an orchestra in the background. At the time, I did not realize that this was the first and only record to carry this track at that time (it is now available on the War Child re-mastered CD, which I also recommend highly). I also love the edited version of "A Passion Play." Later, I bought the album A Passion Play, and this edited version is definitely the best part of the album. M.U. The Best of Jethro Tull captured me and I knew I would not be disappointed in the rest of Tull's catalogue, and I was right. In fact, the next Tull purchase I made was for a CD box set, so I quickly made a commitment as a Jethro Tull fan.

I remember the spring of 1977. Riding my 10 speed to the mall with money I made doing yard work for neighbors, just to buy this album. At 16, my collection already consisted of a fair cross section of Rock 'n Roll including "Eat a Peach", "Brothers and Sisters", "Diamond Dogs", Joe Walsh's "Smoker you drink, Player you get" (plus "James Gang Rides Again"), Bad Company's self titled album, "Mott The Hoople Live","Pet Sounds", and all the requisite Zepplin, Stones, Dylan, and Beatles.
But there was something about Tull. I remember earlier on in 1972 hearing a friend's older brother's cassette of "Thick as a Brick" and saying, "what the hell is that"? Later on, rainy New Jersey Saturdays doing algebra homework, listening to War Child "Skating Away". Living too far outside of NYC to catch the regular shows at the "Garden", I could only listen to Tull and imagine, but the mysteries it suggested. . .
MU was a whole opera in overture form. I take away one star because I miss the cracks, spits, and scratches of my worn out vinyl copy.
Today, talking about Tull is like as if in 1973 someone was talking about Glenn Miller, but I don't care. . . it's only Rock 'n Roll . . . and you know the rest

In my opinion, this is the best "Best Of" collection of Jethro Tull that you can find (for the money)... unless you're willing to buy the box set or double album collections. This one is the most fulfilling collection for me. Why? Because, in addition to having JT's commonly available hits, like Aqualung, Locomotive Breath, and so forth, this album features lesser known cuts, like Fat Man, Rainbow Blues, and Nothing Is Easy. Fat Man has always been one of my favorite JT songs. I could have bought any other collection, but I chose this one for that reason. I think you will, too. It's definately the "best" of Jethro Tull.

As with any collection of greatest hits, the intention is to give something to those fans who only like the hits and not the full LPs or to hook in those who may have only heard of one or two songs, but are unaware of all the other great tracks. As such, this is an excellent introduction to the Classic Tull tracks and should hook in any marginally interested listener. However, as with many of these things it also does that little underhanded trick of including an unreleased track just to tempt the already hooked fans into buying it. But it's still a great compilation record. And that bonus track is pretty darn good too.

This is it! If you are trying to get a glimpse of the greatness that Jethro Tull was/is/are..this is the place to start. It captures the best of all the pre-1979 albums and can turn you into a fan in just one listening. I personally love every track on the album and you will too.

This is the first Tull album that I purchased, and I don't regret the investment. It is an above average album with many popular songs. It is the best album to purchase if you are just getting started on Jethro Tull.

Considering that Jethro Tull's career spans several decades, this early collection from the 70s is necessarily incomplete. And like all "best of" compilations, numerous qualified songs from the era it encompasses, such as Bouree, are omitted altogether. Consequently, this is not a collection for the avid fan, who would opt for multiple CDs instead. However, M.U. does provide a decent sampling of Tull classics for the more casual fan, as well as an entree to their body of work for those who would simply like to buy one CD to check out the band.

To me, the one downside of the CD is that the great classic "Aqualung" has been remixed so that the vocal effects in the section "Sun streaking cold / An old man wandering lonely..." have been removed--and with it, to my musical taste, some of the song's magic. Some other listeners may not notice and may not even care. But for those who enjoy the old standby in its familiar format, don't expect to hear the original mix here, which is found on the "Aqualung" album.

On the other hand, it's nice to have short edits of "A Passion Play" and "Thick As A Brick" gathered here, as well as classics such as the rocking "Locomotive Breath" and other great songs like "Teacher" and "Living in the Past."

I recommend this CD to the casual fan as a Tull sampler or starter. More avid fans should and probably will look elsewhere.
