Jethro Tull – Aqualung (2011 Steven Wilson Remix), Clear Vinyl LP
Factory sealed. New.
To many, Aqualung is one of Tull’s and rock’s masterpieces. It was Jethro Tull’s fourth studio album following on from This Was, Stand Up and Benefit, each released in the three years prior to Aqualung’s original release in 1971. The album is often referred as one of the great concept albums, a label that Jethro Tull founder, songwriter and frontman Ian Anderson has rejected. That classification led to creating a concept album as a follow up to Aqualung, in the form of Thick As A Brick a year later in 1972. Aqualung alludes to several different themes, especially religion. Tracks such as Locomotive Breath, Hymn 43 and the title track Aqualung feature catchy riffs, with the album comprising of a more acoustic feel compared to their previous work. The result was a top 10 album across the world, including UK, US, Australia and more, as well as being certified 3x Platinum in the US, and Gold in both UK and Germany.
To celebrate Aqualung’s 50th anniversary, the classic rock staple is available on transparent vinyl in a very limited number, featuring the 2011 Steven Wilson remixed audio.
