    Win Bountiful Jethro Tull 40th Anniversary Box "Songs from the Wood" | In The Studio with Redbeard
    “Looking back, we all had confidence that the record was a good one”, writes Jethro Tull leader Ian Anderson about 1977’s Songs from the Wood, “but the apparent folky flavour might be a stumbling block in those changing years when early Punk Rock and other returns to rock’s roots threatened to marginalize us more musical and aesthetic types.”This latest uber-expanded super deluxe set in the Jethro Tull catalog series is literally bursting at the seams with three CDs and double DVDs with remastered original sound, a quad 4.0 surround version(!), plus Porcupine Tree prog rocker Steven Wilson‘s new remix on “Songs from the Wood”,”Jack in the Green”,”Hunting Girl”,”The Whistler”, and “Velvet Green”. One of the two DVDs contains rare unseen concert footage from the Jethro Tull 11/77 concert at Capital center in Landover MD. Join the sylvan campfire by registering below before midnight ET June 4 ( North American residents only). From Rhino Entertainment.

    Got it. Really great stuff here. For the price it's an incredible proposal, imho.

    Not managed to listen to the surround mix yet. Crossing fingers.

    Old Aces Die Hard, is an excellent long (9 mins) complex piece, apparently discovered in an almost finished state on a tape reel, presumably overlooked for whatever reason at the time and then subsequently forgotten. This song is a real find, only recently having been given its title by Ian Anderson, and, as Steven Wilson said recently, it is the undoubted highlight of the treasure chest of unreleased material that has so far been unearthed in this series.

    This is a very classy release: 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, lovely remastering and mixing by Steven Wilson, an excellent surround mix and a scattering of original quad mixes. The concert video is very enjoyable (despite showing its age as far as the video goes), again with a nice surround mix. The audience noise is way in the background and seems to have been picked up from the band's mics (it was sort of strange hearing the audience far away in the front center when Ian is talking. SW has done a great job on this giving the recordings a warmth that was absent from the original CDs which always struck me as being a bit harsh. All in all a superlative release and incredible value at £19.99 (+p&p). Thanks once again to Burning Shed for their usual fine service.

    I got mine this morning, listened to the 5.1 DTS 96/24 mix of the album and associated recordings, Soo bloody perb, everything so starkly clear and placed all around me, the main vocals being in the centre speaker and backing in the other 4, lovely highs and great lows.
    I've only got through half of the book while listening, yes it's another great tome full of facts figures and rememberings from the band.
    Now I'm hearing the included Quad mix.
    A slideshow plays through the album, a different slideshow for the Quad.

    Listened to half of the 96/24 DTS 5.1 mix... hats off to Steven Wilson. He knocked it out of the park, as far as I'm concerned. First listen and all, bear that in mind.

    Also sitting in a hotel - in Chicago. Will be more than a week before I get to hear this - one of my most wanted discs! I will have to settle for following along from the road. More reviews please!
    Head for the roundhouse...

    Fourplay, you are in for a real treat. As we all have learned, Wilson's mixes are something to be treasured. As for Tull, this album is at times is seemingly composed for 5.1. There are keyboard tones that were revealed to me for the first time. This is my 2nd favorite JT album, (I won't mentioned my #1 - as I would be forever banned from this forum), I am very familiar with it. Wilson's placements are near perfect and each track seems to breathe new life. Old Aces is a GREAT bonus track as is the "Magic Bells" and early version of One Brown Mouse.

    I have played through it twice and get to drive with it tomorrow. I have yet to check out the bonus DVD, but like all Tull book reissues, this package format (great book, great CD's, bonus tracks, 5.1 and quad mixes, video material, and bargain price) is what I can only wish we could have for a dozen more bands.

    It is a 10 out 10 for me.

    I got this yesterday and it is really fantastic material!
    The surround is excellent but most importantly the album is much better than i remembered.
    The concert dvd is also excellent.
    It was very interesting that they have had to do soundsynching with another sound source to get better audio.
    Myself i used to upgrade pro and audience-filmings of concerts with better audio.
    But to partly use audio from other concerts would have been completely impossible for me.
    So i enjoy that disc both musically and technically.
