Stylistically the album is varied, exemplary of Jethro Tull's progressive-influenced hard rock performances, with long instrumental passages, invested with elements of British folk and archaic, pre-Elizabethan sounds. Minstrel in the Gallery was remastered with five additional bonus tracks in November , including incomplete live-in-the-studio renditions of "Minstrel in the Gallery" and "Cold Wind to Valhalla", some tracks that appeared only on maxi-singles "Pan Dance", "March the Mad Scientist" and "Summerday Sands" which was the B-side of the "Minstrel in the Gallery" single.
The box contains rare and previously unreleased tracks such as alternate takes from "Requiem", "Grace" and "One White Duck" including new stereo mixes by Steven Wilson and a live presentation, from in Palais des Sports , remixed by Jakko Jakszyk. Also, an page booklet featuring track-by-track annotations by Ian Anderson, a history of the group and recollections of life on tour by road crew member Kenny Wylie, maintenance engineer Pete Smith and string section musician Liz Edwards.
Rolling Stone ' s contemporary review has a negative approach towards Minstrel in the Gallery , stating that "The fact that Ian Anderson and the lads have once again plundered the British secular music tradition signifies little and delivers less. The lyrics are considered "contrary to the LP's basic concept [ AllMusic has a favourable review, stating that the album is the "most artistically successful and elaborately produced album since Thick as a Brick ".
Analysing the music, it said: "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 perhaps the loveliest acoustic number in Tull's repertoire, featuring nothing but Anderson's singing and acoustic guitar, Hammond-Hammond's bass, and a small string orchestra backing them".
All tracks are written by Ian Anderson , except as noted. Arrangements for string quintet were written by Dee Palmer. All credits derived from the original record pressing. Credits are adapted from Minstrel in the Gallery liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jethro Tull.
