    Default Jethro Tull: Songs From The Wood 5.1 mix coming soon

    Looks like Jethro Tulls Songs From The Wood are getting a makeover by Mr Wilson.

    Don't think I've heard anything from the album before.
    Were there any tracks that got played on radio?

    Yes, please - thank you very much Mr. Wilson! To me, the last great JT album, one that stays on from the beginning to the end. Although, I wouldn't mind if the 5.1 reissues go on...

    Yowza, this question is tough. It was released in 1977, so my direct memories of radio airplay are thin, and I owned the LP so my memories may be further muddled by repeated plays, BUT, you cannot go wrong with any of these tracks:

    Songs from the Wood
    Jack-in-the-Green
    Cup of Wonder
    Hunting Girl
    Velvet Green
    The Whistler

    which are the ones that stick out most for me in the track list.

    Wikipedia says "The song "The Whistler" was the only song to chart as a single in the United States, peaking at No. 59 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1977."

    I think many including the band itself consider Velvet Green to be a small masterpiece, and why it was never released as a single I cannot guess. Listen carefully to the brilliantly oblique but no less smutty lyrics of this track.

    This is my #2 most desired album for surround treatment at this time, just behind Pink Floyd - Animals!
    Head for the roundhouse...
    They'll never corner you there!

    3. Cup of Wonder
    4. Hunting Girl
    5. Velvet Green
    6. The Whistler
    What I remember, as far as what got airplay in the states on album oriented rock stations, I believe #1,2,5,and 6 all did along with "Ring Out, Solstice Bells". #1 and #6 were probably the biggest 'hits".

    Just to add the album would have had very little air play in GB, word of mouth really.

    I was at Cardiff Uni when it came out, well listened to by quite a few of us, as was Heavy Horses - and it was very much a word of mouth thing, everyone else was into punk or bands like The Boomtown Rats.

    One of only two Jethro Tull albums I purchased on Vinyl. A Must-Buy for me. This will be my first 5.1 release from the lot. Though, I have heard Aqualung which is very good. It may be time I start acquiring some of the surround releases before it's too late.

    Do yourself a favour and pickup as many as you can before it's too late.

    agree with you on that, SW intimated one time there's only one print run for these Tull 5.1 editions.. so when they're all gone at regular retail prices direct from Amazon etc we'll be at the mercy of the aftermarket..

    I'm curious how many of these things they print up? Would also be curious, in the end, where they are selling the best... (country)
    OK, OK. I just like numbers...

    I saw some great bands there, off the top of my head, Canned Heat, Camel, The Ramones, Renaissance, Manfred Mann's Earthband, The Cure, Slade (twice in 1 week with different sets), plus loads more.

    I saw Renaissance there that would be around 78 79, Camel 75 76 but at the Cardiff Capitol, Greg lake about 82 83 and last but not least Motorhead in 2005, I made the mistake of standing right in front of the PA stack, it was so loud you could not separate instruments, just a wall of noise, went back as far as the bar to hear separation, but great days and some superb bands.
