In January 2013, we headlined a festival in Somerset, UK. We wanted a live CD to be a summary of the last two years of our work. The fans had kept asking for a CD version of the show and this was the ideal opportunity, with the band in one place, and a couple of “days off”. The festival was a great success and after a very late night, we met at Middle Farm Studio, about 50 miles away, the next morning. We set the back-line up, as we do onstage, with Dan in a booth, as he, rightly, felt that it was important to record all his vocals live. Every track was one take, except for ‘Still Loving You Tonight’. Dan and I did two versions, but used the first one anyway! It was really important to keep the feel and continuity the same as a live gig. By the end of the day, we had all the songs finished.

Martin Barre has been the guitarist of Jethro Tull for 43 years, his sound and playing having been a major factor in their success. Album sales have exceeded 60 million units and they continue to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history. Martin’s guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on ‘Aqualung’. His playing on the album ‘Crest of a Knave’ earned him a Grammy award in 1988. As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Jo Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin. As Jethro Tull are taking a long break from touring, Martin has put together a band to play the “classic” music from the Tull catalogue. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years. The band includes top musicians from a similar background.
