I love the main guitar riff, and the way Anderson's flute plays besides it, I love Anderson's vocal melody, etc I remember being a bit disappointed with the album of the same name, wishing that it were a bit more rockin' and less acoustic.
I love the musical intro to this, and of course, love the overall heaviness of the rest of the song. The first half concludes with a short little segment of the album long piece ' Thick as a Brick ' I would have to say this is one of my favorite parts of that forty minute plus song. I love rhythm for this song, which is a bit of showpiece for John Evans' organ playing. Catchy as all heaven!
I'm not quite as fond of the second half I have never been a fan of the song ' Warchild ', partly due to Ian's sax playing, which can also be heard on the other two songs on this compilation that I don't like, ' Too Old To Rock-n-Roll, Too Young to Die ', and the then previously unreleased B-side ' Glory Row '. The edit from the album A Passion Play isn't bad however though I wish they would have included a snippet from the first side, which I think is much stronger than the second half , and this compilation does include one of the heavier and better songs from 's Benefit album,' To Cry You A Song ', on which Anderson plays electric guitar.
This album really made me take the full plunge into the unique and quirky musical universe of Jethro Tull, and I have many fond memories of buying and getting to know all of their recordings. There may actually be much better Tull best-ofs, like Living In The Past, though I consider that more of a regular album than a compilation , but this is certainly not a bad collection.
This is a rather strange collection. First, the "progressive" intro to Minstrel the he gallery not included, and this disc starts out with just the balls out rock part Bleeding Awesome. And, to top it all off, Minstrel was recorded in a castle somewhere in Europe.
Anyway, that's not the point of this collection. Or this review for that matter. The balence of this set is pretty pedestrian and generally lacks anything that you've probably not heard on AOR Radio. Remember that kiddies?
But wait what's that at the end of the disc? Ah Ha!!! There's this little ditty called "Glory Row" This cut sounds like it might have been left off of Warchild as it has the same sort of vibe.
Too bad, as this is really one of best Tull songs ever, in my 'umble opinion. It has a really neat hook that sticks with you. Peace and God Bless All. The Original Christmas Party Album.

And so this record's lukewarm reception remains something of a conundrum. No matter now, since over a long career this compilation remains an excellent entry point into Jethro Tull's most fertile period.
