Jethro Tull / A Passion Play

passionplay

Pack shot of the reissue of Jethro Tull‘s A Passion Play which is due out in just over a week’s time.

This set has the subtitle ‘An Extended Performance’ because as well as a new stereo mix and 5.1 mix of the album proper by Steven Wilson, the earlier abandoned sessions that the band recorded in  Chateau d’Herouville in France, get the same treatment – new stereo mixes and 5.1 surround mixes!

The 2CD+2DVD set offers the stereo mixes in hi-res (on the DVDs) while the surround sound options include DTS and Dolby 5.1. A new 2LP vinyl version with the new stereo mix is also being released.

A Passion Play: An Extended Performance is out on 30 June.

    For anyone who’s interested, Amazon UK is listing a Jethro Tull “Original Album Series” box of five catalogue CDs, for release on 4 August. Albums are Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses, Stormwatch, A & Broadsword.

    Oddly, Songs from the Wood recently appeared on an EMI 5-CD boxset. However, I believe that was an Australian import, so perhaps different ownership/licencing rights apply there.

  2. Ranasakawa says:

    I only paid £12 way back when it was first listed

  3. Dean says:

    Love Tull, but really don’t enjoy this one.

    But the loving care being lavished upon it persuades me to give it another go. Pre-ordered.

  4. Peter says:

    Pre-ordered.

    I also purchased a new bucket at the weekend and I am now planning to buy some groceries (salad and veg etc.) on Wednesday evening if anybody is further interested in my shopping habits.

  5. Alan says:

    Bought today and sounds good. The Chateau recordings are going to take some getting used to as Mr. Wilson has stripped them back to their original form devoid of the overdubs and remixing from the earlier Nightcap release. Nice go have Sailor released officially at last.

  6. Greg says:

    Received my set from Amazon U.K. My cost was $29 U.S. (£16.55) inclusive of shipping. This is what every super deluxe edition should be, CD, hi-res audio for both original stereo, remix stereo & 5.1 mix, high quality remix, extra music, booklet with interesting information, packaging that is not too big to put on your shelf, secure and durable disc holders, no marbles, scarves, coasters, t-shirts, etc. & a reasonable price. Pink Floyd, take note!

  7. Mike says:

    I swear to God, I almost had a heart attack when the “found verses” section came on. After hearing this album hundreds of times since 1973, the new lyrics jumped out at me the second they started. It was like some kinda Dead Sea Scrolls thing or something. At that moment, I realized that I’m a lifelong Tull geek and proud of it!
