Jethro Tull – Jack In The Green: Live In Germany (1970 - 93/Eagle DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Concert: B



In a nice change of pace from the usual and many Jethro Tull releases, Jethro Tull – Jack In The Green: Live In Germany is a new DVD that shows Ian Anderson’s growth, highs, lows and endurance as an icon of Rock music and beyond.  The cross-section of performance are remarkably consistent and includes:


Rockpop In Concert – 1982

Hard Times

Pussy Willow

Heavy Horses

Jack In The Box

Keyboard Solo

Sweet Dream


Locomotive Breath



Rocksummer – 1986

Hunting Girl


Out In The Green – 1986

Thick As A Brick

Black Sunday

Improvisation II

Too Old For Rock ‘N’ Roll/Too Young To Die


Live – 1993

My Sunday Feeling

So Much Trouble


Beat Club – 1970 – 73

With You There To Help Me

Nothing Is Easy



Tull gets attacked by a new generation trying to lump them with all of Progressive Rock or trivialize/mock the 1960s and 1970s in mindless fashion.  Even after the Lord Of The Rings films and the rest of the Fantasy cycle of late, you’d think all would get more respect.  Oh well.


The 1.33 X 1 image is only slightly various and all full color throughout, all captured on analog video that ranges from PAL to NTSC, but is transferred about as well as it is going to be here.  The DTS 5.1 mix is the best of the three choices (version Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0) but all show the limits of the TV audio of the time.  There are no extras, but Eagle has a newer concert on DVD you can read more about at this link:
