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!

nonrabbit: You can also use the Search button - top left, and although it looks a bit of a faff - I use the first box - "WHAT"... type in "Lyrics" Ignore the "WHERE" box and go to "WHEN" and I usually specify something like 8000 days>>>

steelmonkey: Don't be sad, Brits. When my sports teams lose I just remember that sports are just soap opera for men, with no writers, to sell beer and cars.

steelmonkey: When a team I support wins, sports are good diversion and apt metaphors for life...when my team loses? See above.

steelmonkey: Montreux live album: no audience recognition nor response to easy hint of Budapest coming up or opening notes. Tell me...what is wrong with people? What Tull fan in 2003 doesn't have the sense to express sheer joy at onset of Budapest,live?
