Notes from original uploader:
"I always hoped that there would be a good recording of Jethro Tull's Rock Island tour from 1989, which I think is one of the most interesting in Tull's history.
Their set-list contained songs the band has never performed live since (Strange Avenues, Bigg riff, the whaler's due... for example) and others they had never played before (Jack-a-lynn, The Third hooraah ...). It is also the only tour with Maartin Allcock (multi-instrumentalist, also a member of Fairport Convention, like his colleague Dave Pegg) and the only time that Martin Barre was no not the only guitarist.
Unfortunately, only one soundboard of this 1989 tour exists (Tampa, Florida November 26, 1989) and yet is it an incomplete recording - barely half of the concert- with many flaws: a lot of hiss, some cuts in several songs, distortion, wrong speed, audience totally absent...Among the audience recordings, those most widely available are not the best in my opinion. Only one could be rated "very good" or "excellent" IMO: that of Zurich, Switzerland 13 October 1989. But unfortunately, again with an audience quite absent.
Hence the idea of working in a reconstruction of a full concert using the 2 best recordings above and correcting the many flaws. Then, using several other audience recordings, I managed to add the live ambiance - mainly between songs - that the original sources were lacking .Here's the result: arguably the best bootleg of the 1989 tour, and without doubt the most pleasant release to listen from beginning to end.
The title of this bootleg is in reference to the multiplicity of sources used to reconstruct this *ultimate* concert."

Nota del autor original:
Siempre tuve la esperanza de que habria alguana buena grabacion de la gira del album Rock Island de Jethro tull, en 1989, ya que creo que es una de las giras mas interesantes en la historia de la banda.
El set de canciones incluia temas que la banda nunca habia interpretado en directo (strange avenues,bigg riff, the whaler´s due...por ejemplo) y otras antiguas jamas tocadas en vivo (jac-a-lynn, the third hooraah:::). Tambien es la unica gira con Maartin Allcock (multiinstrumentista, tambien miembro de la formacion Fairport Convention, como su colega Dave Pegg) y la unica vez que Martin Barre no fué el unico guitarrista (en esta gira Ian Anderson se atrevió en varias canciones con la electrica ritmica, NOTA DEL TRADUCTOR).
Desgraciadamente solo una grabacion desde la mesa de sonido existe (Tampa, Florida, 26 de Noviembre de 1989), y está incompleta, sólo la mitad de l concierto, ademas de tener multiples errores de sonido (distorsión, velocidad de la cinta incorrecta, total ausencia de ruido por parte del publico...junto a las grabaciones caseras de entre el publico, mi opinion es que no son las mejores. Solo una de estas grabaciones puede ser puntuada como "muy buena" ó "excelente": aquella de Zurich, Suiza, del 13 de octubre de 1989.Pero desgraciadamente, otra vez con la total ausencia de sonido por parte de la audiencia.
Pensé en la idea de trabajar en la reconstruccion de un concierto completo usando las 2 mejores grabaciones y corrigiendo los numerosos errores. Luego, usando varias grabaciones de publico de otras fuentes, añadí el ambiente de un concierto en vivo, principalmente entre canciones-ya que las fuentes originales estaban mal.Aqui esta el resultado: Con seguridad el mejor bootleg de la gira de 1989, y sin duda, la edicion con mas calidad para escuchar de principio a fin.
El titulo de este bootleg hace referncia a la multitud de fuentes usadas para la reconstruccion de éste "concierto definitivo".
