JETHRO TULL Box Up Their Debut

This year marks the jubilee of JETHRO TULL, and it would be strange if , having taken care of commemorative compilations and the 40th anniversary “Heavy Horses” reissue – mentioned hereIan Anderson, whom this scribe saw on-stage last month, forgot about the band’s first album, “This Was” which deserves deluxe treatment no less than its sequels. And on November 9th, the group’s debut will indeed be out in the by now familiar book format, with three CDs and a DVD offering various mixes, including Steven Wilson‘s ones, if not a lot of rarities. Hopefully, there’ll be more of those next year, when “Stormwatch” – rumored to be handled by Wilson as well – is out again.
