Wow. There is a release of Live at Montreux on vinyl as a double LP and I would have to say that it is the best listening of any Tull I have ever heard. Even better than my 2 gold ultradisc's or the MFSL mint vinyl that is in my collection. This is definitely worth buying if you are any sort of a serious Tull fan (and so long as you have a good turntable to play it on).
Jethro Tull Live In Switzerland 2003 (triple vinyl box set)
Live In Switzerland, 2003 documents Jethro Tull's first (and so far only) visit to the justly famed Montreux Festival.
Split into a semi-acoustic first half and an all electric second half, the concert was a considered a triumph, and combined newer songs such as Dot Com, Budapest with enduring favourites including Aqualung, Life Is A Long Song and Living In The Past.
This triple clear (140g) vinyl box set edition provides an ideal memento of a special occasion in the history of one of Rock's truly classic bands.
Jethro Tull Live At Montreux 2003 on 180g 2LP Set from Audio Fidelity
Mastered by Kevin Gray and Steve Hoffman: Tremendous Sound
Features Liner Notes by Ian Anderson
Jethro Tull is rock royalty. And on the double 180g LP set Live At Montreux 2003, the band rolls through its biggest hits, including "Living in the Past," "Aqualung" and "Locomotive Breath." The group performs both electric and semi-acoustic, infusing the material with the proper balance of tones and textures. A career-spanning setlist displays the collective's timeless merit. And leader Ian Anderson even contributes liner notes to this edition! It's an experience that no Jethro Tull fan should miss, particularly in analog.
Mastered for this special 180g double vinyl version by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, the sound is absolutely incredible!

rabey: Hi John/bunkerfan and Steelmonkey.
May 7, 2019 23:08:40 GMT
rabey: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately because Ian/Tull is doing his own book when I sent a request to find John I got stonewalled, even though I have a signed contract by Ian from 2013 stating I was doing a DVD version of The book. I also have had trouble

rabey: I guess after 5 years Ian forgot this even existed. Imean, he never even listed my book with all the other books that have been out of print for decades, yet mine and Tim S still have books in print and we're not mentioned.

rabey: I just get the impression that this AND having just dealt with Tull are all they care about really and it peeves me when the truth is when I first got my original contract with a US publisher to write the book with quotes on 3 other books on ELP,Crimson,

rabey: and YES, I contacted both Martin and Dave from AND and offered involvement in writing and photography. but Dave said no interest and martin was happy to get his photos printed just for credit. Later Daves book arrived and martin wanted 100 bucks a shot.

rabey: Anyway, The publisher refused the cost of photos, Martin wrote the only negative review of the book in print except for Amazon where a few stinkers stalled it's movement, but basically there was nothing advertising the book outside the UK.

steelmonkey: Fights about history, public knowledge and more personally researched knowledge are pretty hard to untangle...but nothing takes away your contributions to total Tull information.

rabey: Very Kind, Steelmonkey!
