Jethro Tull/Aqua Lung

THEMULL

I don't care what all of you are saying about the music on this recording!!! If any one out there actually has a copy of the original vinyl and listens to it next to this there is NO comparison!! This is the clear loser.

Tull Stays True and Adds New....

EMUSIC-01CDD4E8

feeling and dimensions to the classic studio album. Some of the tunes have been dropped a full step from the original key. Probably to accommodate Ian Anderson's present vocal range. This is no way removes from the presence of Ian's voice. Some of the melodies are slightly changed too. Martin Barre's guitartistry still pulls through the solos and he shines to his peak playing. Other musicians have a great role to play, one for having to meet the classic arrangements, two for having to mirror the old musicians and three for having to do this live in an XM studio. If you like Tull and Aqualung, this is a must have to hear what can be done with classic material after 30 years of shelf life and road use. I enjoyed it twice through and will listen many times more. Keep on strömmin' ATL

Fresh Take on a Classic Album

04BS

Aqualung on vinyl is one of those albums that is a true classic and an all time favorite of mine. I bought it on vinyl when it first hit the stands. I still have it (unscratched mind you), listen to it and remember every chord as if it were an ancestral memory. When I first saw the live version here I was excited but I hesitated downloading it. I'm not sorry I did finally download it. Anderson and Barre have crafted a fresh take on one of their classic albums that doesn't forget its roots. Ian's flute and vocals and Martin's guitar work evoke that ancestral memory.

Live Tull

lowlandscorfes

If you have enjoyed Tull live then this album is for you. Whilst some may say that Anderson's vocal range shows his age for songs such as Aqualung and My God the well used tones add to the drama. I would however say that this should not replace a well used vinyl copy of the original Aqualung

Do you hate re-visited Classic Albums?

SPANKY

I normally do. But this is an exception. 33 years after the original this sounds almost as fresh as a new JT album. As an ancient Aqualung disciple I saw it performed live first time round and this is the evolution version that takes nothing away from the original. Unless you are a JT obsessive though only download tracks 1-11

They Say All Music Guide

Each era of rock music has had its own craftily marketed phenomenon — it was the “live album” in the ’70s, “unplugged” recordings in the ’90s, and since the late ’80s through the present day, the “tribute album.” But the early 21st century saw another addition — veteran bands revisiting classic albums and performing them in their entirety. Jethro Tull’s most enduring release is largely agreed to be 1971′s classic Aqualung, and in late 2004 Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, and their latest Tull mates dusted off the album once more in front of a small audience for XM Radio’s Then Again Live series. Since 33 years had passed between the original and the re-reading, the performances on Aqualung Live are slightly more restrained. And while some of Barre’s mighty riffs can still be spotted blaring away — most notably the middle bit of “My God” — other songs get an overhauling, such as the barely recognizable “Hymn 43.” In addition to revisiting the full album, several interview segments are tacked on at the end of the disc, including some interesting bits about the original recording (it turns out that Led Zeppelin were also recording nearby) and the fact that, despite popular belief, Aqualung was not a concept album. Aqualung Live proves that Anderson and Barre are still at the top of their game, unlike some other “classic rock” acts whose playing abilities have diminished over the years. [Aqualung Live was distributed at shows for free during Tull's U.S. tour in the fall of 2005. Subsequently, it was made available as a special limited-edition release, with all artist and publishing royalties going to charities for the homeless.] – Greg Prato
