Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
It strains the imagination that a band led by a guy playing a flute could have the impact that Jethro Tull has had on the rock world. Nevertheless, Ian Anderson and Tull have been playing their uniquely flutey blend of rock 'n' roll for more than three decades, blowing the doors off arenas worldwide with such trademark favorites as "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath." Living With the Past, Tull’s first DVD offering, is a witches' brew of concert footage, ranging from a 1968 show in a small London pub to clips from the group's 2001 tour. Bonus features include Ian Anderson playing with Uriah Heep in a cut recorded for Heep's Acoustically Driven DVD, and a performance of the Traffic standard "John Barleycorn" with members of Fairport Convention. There’s plenty here for both the mildly acquainted and diehard Tull fans to sink their teeth into -- if the band is truly living with the past, their searing live performances certainly aren’t showing it.

    I want MORE of the band(The quintet)I saw live in 1970!!

    Ok. Don't get me wrong, this is a dynamite dvd for those whom love the post "Aqualung" band. For those this is a great dvd, but.........<BR/><BR/>I 1st saw the version of JT 'live' in <BR/>mid Oct. 1970 a month before the recording on the cd release in their boxed set called, "Jethro Tull 25th Anniversary Boxed Set" that contain's the entire live "Carnegie Hall" NYC Benefit EXCEPT the MUST HAVE song's(*available on "Living IN the Past" cd)"By Kind Permission of" & the fantastic Clive Bunker extended drum solo of which I absolutely love the 1st version of on, "This Was" "DHARMA FOR ONE"!!<BR/><BR/>That's why I keep hoping for all filmed & videotaped performances of the "JT" band that included; Ian Anderson-Martin Barre(I'd love every performance w/Mick Abrahams as well!)Glen Cornick-CLIVE BUNKER(I'm an old professional drummer myself so...)& John Evans. I'df love to see/hear the BBC telecasts, & other European, & Japanese tv shows that featured the 'old' line-up, as 'this was' JT for me, period.<BR/><BR/>So buy this, as if you like Tull you'll want this, but even with the "New Day Yesterday" dvd, there is not enough of the older Tull footage to rate it higher than 3 stars. "Cannon's"

    Jethro Tull: Living with the Past

    This DVD has the recent concerts and tapes of Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull, BUT it does not have any concert footage of the group in their peak back in the late 1960's-early 1970's. The original members do a reunion concert at a small pub, and musically it sounds good, it does not have the excitment or magic of the early years. On the positive side: Ian Anderson's flute playing ability has greatly improved, and the music has been digitaly remastered.

    Strong As Ever

    The performances on this DVD, especially of Ian Anderson, are as good as the shows I saw long ago. The flute playing is better than any performance I have seen live and the music is still as relevant as it ever was. The band is having an obvious good time. My favorite pieces are the acoustic Wondring Aloud and the classic Cross-eyed Mary. Watching this makes me want to see them live again.

    Jethro Tull Scores with this Digital Masterpiece

    Fire up this DVD and you are there, on stage, viewing and listening to all the notes. Seeing the performers enjoy and play from the best seat in the house. A must for all old and new Tull fans. Ian is the musicians musician.
