JETHRO TULL: Watching The Storms From Four Decades Perspective

Eagerly awaited for months, if not for a year after the release of “Heavy Horses” (detailed here, not made available for review), the 40th Anniversary reissue of JETHRO TULL‘s “Stormwatch” marks the end of an era in many a fan’s mind. The band’s last release of the ’70s, it would see most of the players – save for Ian Anderson and Martin Barre – bid farewell to the ensemble that finished with both prog and folk rock excursions on this record which returns in all its glory as “Force 10 Edition” on October 18th.

As usual, presented in a book-like form, it will contain four CDs and two audio-only DVDs comprising Steven Wilson‘s remixes of the album and recordings made in the same period – some of them previously unreleased, as is a 1980 concert which will span two discs. Undoubtedly, a must-have item.
