“Jack In The Green” – Live In Germany 1970-1993″ by Jethro Tull

Artist: Jethro Tull
Title: “Jack In The Green” – Live In Germany 1970-1993
Label: Eagle Vision
Release Date: 5/20/2008
Genre: Progressive Rock
Rating: 3.5/5

There was always something special about the music of Jethro Tull that kept drawing the fans of both Classic and Progressive Rock together in unison. The skillful blending of conventional Rock themes with the use of the flute was truly something different when the band first came upon the scene some forty years ago and its appealing sound when put together with the odd time signatures and experimentation of Progressive Rock themes helped them to not only become one of the best bands of the time, but also to maintain a legendary status that has proven inspirational for bands that followed them. The DVD “Live In Germany” features about forty five minutes of a show that was filmed back in 1982 and while this was loaded with Tull standards I was curious as to why we just didn’t get the full show as opposed to a segment of it. The show was called “RockPop” and after this piece we jump a little forward to 1986 for “Hunting Girl” filmed during Rocksummer and then to a section called “Out In The Green” which was also 1986 and gives us four more numbers. From there we skip a few years and arrive in 1993 for two more tunes. The release closes up with two very vintage songs from 1970 and these were filmed for television and find Anderson stopping the band because they were not on point when he wanted them to be. It’s nice to have all of this stuff in one place, but you can see where the somewhat sporadic and jumping nature of it could be annoying. These clips are definitely something that the diehard Tull fans have in their collection on bootlegs from the various trading groups that are out there but in the end this is pretty nice to have one a crystal clear DVD that delivers top-notch audio as well.
