The 40th Anniversary edition of Jethro Tull’s Minstrel In The Gallery. The album has been expanded to include the b-side Summerday Sands, several studio outtakes, and alternate session material recorded for a BBC broadcast. The second disc features a live recording of Jethro Tull performing at the Olympia in Paris on July 5, 1975, a few months prior to the release of Minstrel In The Gallery. During the show, the band played songs from several of its albums, including War Child and Aqualung, as well as an early performance of Minstrel In The Gallery. It was mixed to 5.1 & stereo by by King Crimson guitarist Jakko Jakszyk.
Highlights from the set include:
* Original album plus seven bonus tracks (six previously unreleased), two mixed to 5.1 surround, and all to stereo by Steven Wilson
* Flat transfers of the original LP mix at 96/24 plus additional track Summerday Sands
* Flat transfer of the original quad mix of the LP plus additional track Summerday Sands
* An eight and a half minute film of the band performing Minstrel In The Gallery in Paris from 1975

Minstrel in the Gallery was Tull’s most artistically successful and elaborately produced album since Thick as a Brick and harkened back to that album with the inclusion of a 17-minute extended piece (“Baker Street Muse”). Although English folk elements abound, this is really a hard rock showcase on a par with — and perhaps even more aggressive than — anything on Aqualung. The title track is a superb showcase for the group, freely mixing folk melodies, lilting flute passages, and archaic, pre-Elizabethan feel, and the fiercest electric rock in the group’s history — parts of it do recall phrases from A Passion Play, but all of it is more successful than anything on War Child. Martin Barre’s attack on the guitar is as ferocious as anything in the band’s history, and John Evan’s organ matches him amp for amp, while Barriemore Barlow and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond hold things together in a furious performance. Anderson’s flair for drama and melody come to the fore in “Cold Wind to Valhalla,” and “Requiem” is the loveliest acoustic number in Tull’s repertory, featuring nothing but Anderson’s singing and acoustic guitar, Hammond-Hammond’s bass, and a small string orchestra backing them. “Nothing at All” isn’t far behind for sheer, unabashed beauty, but “Black Satin Dancer” is a little too cacophonous for its own good. “Baker Street Muse” recalls Thick as a Brick and A Passion Play, not only in its structure but a few passages; at slightly under 17 minutes, it’s a tad more manageable than either of its conceptual predecessors, and it has all of their virtues, freely overlapping hard rock and folk material, classical arrangements (some of the most tasteful string playing on a Tull recording), surprising tempo shifts, and complex stream-of-consciousness lyrics (some of which clearly veer into self-parody) into a compelling whole. -Bruce Eder, AllMusic
