did the play...?
are some classic songs that Jethro Tull didn't
play since many time ago. They played some of
these songs during last 15 years but only a few
times and just in a few shows. Here you can see
when they played songs like teacher, witches's
promise... You can see in which boot you can find
them and the quality of the sound.
played TEACHER, BUNGLE IN
THE JUNGLE, MINSTREL IN THE GALLERY in
1997 shows. There are a few boots with these songs
and the best sounded boot I found is this one from
Wallinford 8-aug-97.It's not a great or excellent
sound but good enough. It also contains ACRES
WILD and THE WHISTLER.
Teacher is really great with much more flute. Bungle
in the jungle and Minstrel were performed as a medley.See
"Live at Wallingford" full setlist.
"Curious Riff, 3-oct-95" bootleg contains
WE USED TO KNOW.
This classic song is in several shows but it isn't
one of the most played. This bootleg is one of the
best recorded of all, superb sound, almost official
sound. I recomend it. See
"Curious Riff" full setlist.
AS A BRICK
is one of the most played songs through the last 15
years but in 1997 they played a 15 min. version in a
few shows with some parts not performed since early
years. The best sounded boot from all this is "Live
at the Opera House, Spokane, Washington 3-nov-97".
This boot also contains THE
WHISTLER in vocal version. The sound great,
Boot (At the amphitheatre Gelsenkirchen, Germany. 29-may-01)
contains two great classics. LOVE
STORY, performed in those 2001 tours and
no played since many time, and SWEET
DREAM released in the official cd "Living
with the past" but in this boot version inclues
"Kelpie" in the middle of the song. Both songs
hasn't been played since then. The sound is excellent,
may be 9 not 10. Probably the best of boots that contains
these two titles.
of my favourites songs is DHARMA
FOR ONE. I haven't found it till 1993-1994
tours at the end of the shows. One of the best sounded
boots from '93 is "A
salmon farmer" and from '94
"In a Norvegian wood" . The version is different
from this one played in just a few shows in 2001. In
the boot (left cover image) "A spare pair, live
at Foxwoods casino, Mashantucket, CT. 21-jul-01, we
found a nice "Dharma" play including a flute
solo. The sound in excellent.
boot, "Live in Bonn 1999, Museumsmeile, Bonn, Germany.
4-jun-99" contains some of the great classics less
played. The sound is quite good, almost excellent, mey
be 9-10. It contains WITCHES
PROMISE, brilliant version with more flute,
TO CRY A SONG, and
also Sossity you're a woman and reasons for waiting.
For these last ones I'd recomend the next below ones.
Salmon Farmer, Würzburg, Germany. 30-may-93"
is one of a few best sounded boots from 93 and 94 tours.
It cointains many songs but I'd recomend the two classics
SOSSITY YOU'RE A WOMAN
and REASONS FOR WAITING.
Other great boots from this year are: "16-10-93
HELLOOOOOOO, live Apollo London" and "04-06-93
POSTCARDS FROM WOLFSBURG, KONGRESSCENTRUM, Germany"
this excellent show, Lugano
Estival Jazz, Switzerland 9-jul-05 we
find the revisited song HYMN
43. They didn't play it since early years.
They played this new version with a touch of Irish for
first time in last 2004 tours. Jethro Tull performed
the full Aqualung album (official release) and it's
hymn 43 for a request of a radio station from Washington
(XM radio). This Lugano show was broadcast on TV and
this audio cd is excellent. Quality.-10!
