Jethro Tull – Aqualung Reissue/Repackage

tull aqualung

The 40th Anniversary Edition of Jethro Tull’s  classic ‘Aqualung’ is being made available at a sensible  price in the same 2CD/2DVD hardbook format as the other recent Jethro Tull reissues.

‘Aqualung’ received the deluxe treatment over four years ago in a large format edition also containing a vinyl LP and blu-ray disc which has become expensive to locate.

CD 1 contains the album mixed and mastered by Steven Wilson (the original 40th anniversary edition was not mastered by Steven). CD 2 features additional 1970 and 1971 recordings (also mixed and mastered by SW).

The DVDs include SW 5.1 surround mixes, hi-res stereo mixes, the 1974 quad mix, and flat transfers of both Aqualung and the Life Is A Long Song EP (two of the EP’s tracks haven’t been available in this form previously).

Pre-order for April 22nd release from Burning Shed or Amazon.
