Jethro Tull 'Thick As A Brick' (40th Anniversary Special Collector’s Edition) CD + DVD Set (7th Oct)
RELEASED 7th October 2022
In 1972, Jethro Tull released the instant classic, Thick As A Brick. 50 years on and the album is still revered as one of rock’s and progressive rock’s most definitive and pioneering albums. This rare and coveted 40th anniversary CD/DVD special collector’s edition will be available on 7th October 2022 after being out of print for nearly ten years.
Thick As A Brick came about following the release of Jethro Tull’s immensely successful previous album “Aqualung”. Upon its release, Aqualung was regarded a concept album in the music press, and in response the band set about to respond to the rock critics with the ultimate concept album, culminating in Thick As A Brick.
Thick As A Brick was the first album to feature drummer Barrie Barlow, who featured alongside Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, John Evan and Jeffrey Hammond.
