JETHRO TULL - SONGS FROM THE WOOD
40th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Jethro Tull's tenth studio album set for deluxe reissue by Parlophone Records on May 19th 2017
3 CD, 2 DVD and 96 page book deluxe package
Including the original album remixed by Steven Wilson
A host of unreleased associated recordings and live tracks
DVD components featuring a live concert, HD audio and 5.1 mixes
Jethro Tull's tenth album was insipired by Ian Anderson's departure to a more rural envrionment in a transition which bore clear influence on the writing and recording process, with the band notably doffing a cap to British folklore and countryside.

Songs From The Wood is often referred to as one of the most commercially appealing Jethro Tull albums, containing elements of rock, prog and folk-rock. Although media reaction at the time divided opinion, the album has certainly developed a nostalgic rapport with fans through the years and itis perceived today as one of the band's most popular albums. Drummer Barrie Barlow comments that it sounds "Fresh, unique, great textures, interesting and dynamic!", while Martin Barre remembers that "it was a very tight band, one of the strongest line-ups Tull ever had... I think Songs From The Wood and Heavy Horses [the follow up album] as a pair of albums are near the top of the tree"

The first disc of the set contains the Steven Wilson remix of the original studio album, acommpained by associated recordings. This includes the tracks "Old Acres Die Hard" and "Working John, Working Joe" which are being released here for the first time on any format. "Old Acres Die Hard", a title Ian Anderson recently gave the track in a subtle nod to Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, is, according to Ian "an extraordinary find, because it's a long piece, and quite evolved, and one that sounds like it is pretty much complete - it doesn't sound as if it was waiting for me or anyone else in the band to go back and redo vocals or guitars or whatever".

CDs 2 and 3 in the box form 22 track live tracks, recorded on the Songs from the Wood Tour across two dates, Boston Garden, Boston, Massachusetts, USA on 6th December 1977 and Calital Centre, Landover, Maryland, USA on 21st November 1977. These tracks have been reconstructed as a complete set and then remixed to stereo by Jakko Jakszyk and are completely unheard.

DVD 1 contains 5.1 DTS, AC3 Dolby Digital Stere Surround and 96/24 LPCM stereo versions of the original Steven Wilson remixed album along with selected associated tracks, as well as various quad mixes and flat transfers.

The final disc in the package is the video footage taken live at the Capital Centre, Landover, Maryland on 21st November 1977 mixed to 16/48 stereo LPCM and 5.1 DTS, AC3 Dolby Digital surround by Jakko Jakszyk. This footage has never been publicly seen before. The concert venue was the home for Washington Wizards basketball team, then known as Washington Bullets - so the video footage comes directly from the film that was played to the big screens in teh venue during the show and has since been seen nowhere else.

Completing the set is a beautiful 96 page book which contains extensive writing on the history of the album and how it came to be. Martin Webb reflects on the writing, reecording and touring of the album whilist Ian Anderson gives a track by track annotation of the album and associated recordings. Alongside lyrics, there's an interview with assistant engineer Trevor White, relevant photos and imagery and a full recording and touring chronology.

Vinyl, digital, and breakout standalone CD versions of the Steven Wilson remix will follow in July.

My eldest brother went to that Capital Centre show. I was deeply jealous at the time. (I saw Tull there the following autumn - my first rock concert.) I hope and trust the show will sound better here than it likely did from the audience on the night (basketball/hockey arenas are not noted for their ideal acoustical properties).

"Old Acres Die Hard", a title Ian Anderson recently gave the track in a subtle nod to Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister,

:? Sure that wasn't "Old Aces Die Hard", C?

I will buy it.

Yes, I will buy it

Got it today.

Steven Wilson has done it again. I've only played the first disc but it sounds great. The new mix is subtle and full of warmth and the bonus tracks fit beautifully.

Old Aces Die Hard doesn't disappoint either after all the anticipation.


Bring on the Heavy Horses.

I must be turning into a Tullhead, i have tried to resist but loved Too Old To Rock and Roll and ended up pre-ordering this one. Arrived today, looks very impressive for £20. I nearly cancelled, dug out my old cd version a few weeks back just to check, played it again, but unfortunately loved it.

Crank it up, Kath!

Report back, guys.

I can't see how they make a profit on these. I mean, they look, feel and sound great. It's obvious that a lot of work has gone into each one.



I'd like it but It makes it very hard to justify paying £100+ for the six disc Pepper :shock:
