Jethro Tull‘s 1980 album ‘A’ will be reissued as a six-disc deluxe edition, in April.

The album introduced a different sound and a new line-up. It was originally intended as an Ian Anderson solo album, but pressure from the record label Chrysalis saw it credited to Jethro Tull, even though only two members from the band’s previous incarnation were featured: Anderson and guitarist Martin Barre. The title of the album refers to the studio tapes, which were marked ‘A’ for Anderson.

A was produced by Anderson and Robin Black and along with Anderson and Barre, the band also featured Dave Pegg (bass, mandolin) and Mark Craney (drums), along with guest performer Eddie Jobson – a Roxy Music alumnus – on keyboard, synthesizer and electric violin.

A Passion Play is the sixth studio album by British progressive rock band Jethro Tull, released in July 1973 in both the UK and US. Following in the same style as the band’s previous album Thick as a Brick (1972), A Passion Play is a concept album comprising individual songs arranged into a single continuous piece of music (which was split into two parts across the original vinyl release’s two sides). The album’s concept follows the spiritual journey of a recently deceased man (Ronnie Pilgrim) in the afterlife, exploring themes of morality, religion and good and evil. The album’s accompanying tour was considered the high water mark of Jethro Tull’s elaborate stage productions, involving a full performance of the album accompanied by physical props, sketches and projected video.

This 40th anniversary special edition was remixed and remastered by Steve Wilson.

Britain’s Jethro Tull sowed the seeds that would become its flowering brand of progressive rock three albums into their career. Their third album, 1969’s Benefit, is a welcome transition away from the blues-rock that characterized their earlier material. Despite a tumultuous line-up change that severed ties with the group’s bassist, the addition of organist John Evan would more than compensate for the loss. The RIAA would certify the record Gold nearly a year after its release, recognizing the sale of over 500,000 copies. Reaching #3 on the UK charts and #11 stateside on the Billboard Hot 200, Benefit gained attention for its notable use of advanced studio techniques. The unmistakable voice and musicianship of frontman and producer Ian Anderson still resonates on the album over forty years later. The record’s ambitious nature and signature sound served as a precursor to Jethro Tull’s revered album Aqualung, but should be regarded as an excellent display of sonic ingenuity nonetheless.

Recorded: December 1971 at Morgan Studios, London.  Mixed & Mastered by Steven Wilson

Jethro Tull’s classic 1972 concept album, newly remixed and remastered by Steven Wilson.

While never as high-minded or technically facile as the likes of Yes or ELP, Tull began incorporating complex time changes, sophisticated harmonic structures and highly developed lyrical themes on „Thick As A Brick“, the realization of the artistic growth begun on „Aqualung“. It’s here that Tull finally bursts into full-blown prog-rock mode. While „Aqualung“ was a group of discrete compositions united by a theme, „Thick As A Brick“ consists of one extended piece that occupies the length of the album.

Lyrically, Anderson’s intentions are a bit more obscure here, but the sophisticated arrangements and virtuosic performances are enough to carry the show. John Evan’s piano and organ are at the heart of this complex piece, which moves through an endless succession of tempos, moods and modes in a manner similar to vintage Genesis or the aforementioned Yes, but with a grittier edge. Most importantly, the whole things flows in a cohesive manner. „Thick As A Brick“ demands close attention, but rewards the same handsomely.
‘…their music spins a delicate web of sensitive sounds: sometimes lilting, sometimes soaring to form a brilliant backdrop for the meaningful lyrics and improvisational techniques…’ –Rolling Stone

Recorded during the summer of 1968, This Was is the only Jethro Tull album to feature guitarist Mick Abrahams, who left the group shortly after the album came out to form Blodwyn Pig. The title of the album refers to the band moving away from its early blues-based sound, which was referenced in the original liner notes: “This was how we were playing then—but things change, don’t they?”

The album includes songs that have been in and out of Jethro Tull’s live show for 50 years, like “My Sunday Feeling” and “Beggar’s Farm.” Also featured are several bonus tracks: “Love Story,” “A Christmas Song,” “Sunshine Day” and “Aeroplane.”
