Exclusive Jethro Tull Thick As A Brick Stream
We’ve got an exclusive stream of the forthcoming 40th Anniversary edition of Jethro Tull’s Thick As A Brick. Listen in full below.
Following Ian Anderson’s release earlier this year of Thick As A Brick 2, EMI will release the anniversary edition of Tull’s 1972 classic on November 5.
The lyrics were credited at the time to the fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents supposedly lied about his age. The record instantly became a number one Billboard Chart album and enjoyed considerable success in many countries of the world.
The 40th Anniversary edition features a new mix of the original album by Steven Wilson, plus a DVD containing DTS & Dolby Digital 5.1 surround mix, high quality stereos 96/24 (new mix and 1972 flat transfer).
The celebrated St Cleve Chronicle newspaper is replicated in a durable near-newsprint format within a 104-page hardback book, along with the 2012 TAAB2 newspaper. The book also contains an article by Prog’s Dom Lawson, rare photos from photographers Didi Zill and Robert Ellis, recording and touring mementos and much more.
A double-vinyl package will be available, with the original Thick As A Brick remix, and the new Thick As A Brick 2, both as 180gm audiophile pressings. The package also has a 72-page 12×12 book all held in a hard card slipcase.
The stream is available until noon on Friday 2 November.
