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.

If you need to get back to the class rock roots, this purchase is necessary. Let's face it. The new music does not sufficiently fill the void of the classic rock sound. So I had to go back in time to retrieve the only refuge of musical sanity left. I suggest you do the same.

JETHRO TULL-M.U./THE BEST OF JETHRO TULL: A tight, nearly perfect compilation from the pre-CD era of forty minute albums, M.U. tracks almost a dozen peak period highlights from JETHRO TULL, a cerebral British troupe whose sprawling concept albums took precedence over standard hit singles. Helmed by theatrical muse/focal point IAN ANDERSON's plaintive vocals, eclectic songwriting and elaborate flute outbursts, stand alone songs LIVING IN THE PAST, LOCOMOTIVE BREATH and BUNGLE IN THE JUNGLE were all seventies rock radio cornerstones, as were excerpts from the more elaborate epics AQUALUNG and THICK AS A BRICK. Lesser known but no less impressive efforts such as FAT MAN, TEACHER and SKATING AWAY (ON THE THIN ICE OF A NEW DAY) balance out this rousing folk-prog roundup, which naturally cried out for a sequel (the almost as good REPEAT/THE BEST OF VOL. II) a couple of years later. The next best thing, especially for casual fans, to collecting their original groundbreaking platters, M.U. documents the organic exploits of one of the most unique ensembles to ever wax poetic.

RATING: FOUR FLUTES
