Nightcap: The Unreleased Masters 1973–1991 (1993) is a Jethro Tull double CD album released on 22 November 1993 with older and previously unreleased material.[2] The first CD contains material recorded in August 1972, much of which would be re-recorded and re-arranged as their sixth album, A Passion Play (1973). (The lyrics to "Critique Oblique" and "Scenario" actually refer to "passion play".) "Scenario", "Audition" and "No Rehearsal" had previously appeared on the 20 Years of Jethro Tull box set as parts of a single track entitled "The Chateau d'Isaster Tapes"; this overall title is also used on Nightcap as the title of Disc one. The second CD ranges from 1974 to 1991. The album was produced in limited quantities with proceeds going to charity.
