Wow! Eagle Rock Entertainment announced this past week that a four-disc DVD collection titled Jethro Tull: Around the World Live will be available for fans to own on June 25.
You read that right, a FOUR DISC DVD Collection!!!
Eagle Rock Entertainment has assembled 35 years worth of live concert performances showing off the talents of Ian Anderson, Martin Barre and various members of the group over the decades … indeed, one of the bonus features included in the set is a guide to all of the different shows as compiled by Joel McIver from Ian Anderson’s personal archive (like the old baseball saw, “you won’t know the players without a score card”).
There are ten different shows included in this unique collection, beginning with the Isle of Wight in 1970 and finishing with Lugano, Switzerland in 2005 … stops along the way include Tampa, Florida (1976), Munich, Germany (1980), Dortmund, Germany (1982), Loreley, Germany (1986), Santiago, Chile (1996), Hilversum, Holland (1999), London, England (2001) and Montreux, Switzerland (2003).
As for songs in the mix, you can bet if Jethro Tull recorded it, it’s likely to be here. The epic “Thick as a Brick,” (almost a concert onto itself), “Aqualung,” “Budapest” and by our count a staggering 71 song/music presentations are showcased in this ten-concert collection.
Bonus goodies include a photo album and an interview with Anderson (circa 1999).
