Since Ian Anderson has been talking about this, I guess it's now official. I recently completed a brand new mix of Jethro Tull's "Aqualung" for a 40th anniversary edition. As always the remix is super faithful to the original, but with much improved sonic clarity (something that just can't be achieved with remastering). Also remixed for inclusion were many other studio tracks from the 1970-71 period (several previously unreleased), and a 5.1 mix. It should be out on EMI in September.

On this, the 20th day of January, in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twelve, it is declared that I have finally received wisdom in the form of the Steven Wilson remixed 40th Anniversary Edition of the legendary "Aqualung" album. A mere 14,791 days after the album's initial conquest of the United States of America, the venerable and wise St. Wilson has rendered unto the masses a gift worthy of godly praise.

In honor of this esteemed occasion, I bestow upon thee the following quote from the original album artwork...

1 "In the beginning Man created God;
and in the image of Man
created he him."


2 "And Man gave unto God a multitude of
names, that he might be Lord of all
the earth when it was suited to Man"


3 "And on the seven millionth
day Man rested and did lean
heavily on his God and saw that
it was good."


4 "And Man formed Aqualung of
the dust of the ground, and a
host of others likened unto his kind."


5 "And these lesser men were cast into the
void; And some were burned, and some were
put apart from their kind."


6 "And Man became the God that he had
created and with his miracles did
rule over all the earth."


7 "But as all these things did
come to pass, the Spirit that did
cause man to create his God
lived on within all men: even
within Aqualung."


8 "And man saw it not."

9 "But for Christ's sake he'd
better start looking."




These are wise words, bestowed upon thee from a wise and benevolent band. 8)



:BB Hymn 43



PS ~ Yes, that count of days is accurate. Original US release: 5.3.71 40th, Anniversary Edition release 10.31.11... You know I have no life. :lmao:

That wasn't the rough part... It was rounding up all my neighbors and taking their shoes off that really sucked. :|

Thick As A Brick sequel
to be released April 2nd

TAAB2 - Whatever HappenedTo Gerald Bostock? - is a full length Progressive Rock "concept" album worthy of its predecessor. Boy to man and beyond, it looks at what might have befallen the child poet Gerald Bostock in later life. Or, perhaps, any of us. To be released in two formats: the simple jewel case CD with 8-page booklet and the Special Edition with CD, audio-visual DVD and 16-page booklet. The DVD contains 5.1 surround mixes, 24-bit stereo mix, videos covering the making of the album, interviews with the musicians and the lyric reading where ian Anderson reads the lyrics in various settings. Also on the DVD are the pages of StCleve.com, the online update of the St Cleve Chronicle, fabled newspaper of the original album, and the multilingual lyric translations in Italian, German, Spanish, Czech, Polish and Russian.

So that's who that was. I heard a cool progressive song on the radio last week I thought was called Thick As A Brick. I was particularly digging it because it wasn't one of the same 100 songs that the two oldie stations around here always play. I'll be waiting for Another Thick As A Brick In The Wall Part IV.

I heard about this yesterday...

The original was an excellent album, but this is still an odd choice for a "sequel" as far as I'm concerned. I guess we'll just have to wait and see (or hear) how it turns out.

METALLICA was nominated for the very first "Hard Rock/Metal Performance" Grammy in 1989, but famously lost to JETHRO TULL, a band distinguished mainly by its heavy use of flute. Fans (and even some audience members) were rightly outraged, though TULL's record label tried to make light of the faux pas by placing a Billboard ad that read, "The flute is a heavy, metal instrument."

With the 2012 Grammys coming up this Sunday, Powerline asked JETHRO TULL's vocalist Ian Anderson to recount that historic day when JETHRO TULL was given the award for best hard rock/metal performer.

"I probably get (the question) a lot more when I'm talking to American writers than I do [at home in England]," says Ian Anderson. "It's not really a big deal over here. It was in a year where it was a new category for 'hard rock' forward slash 'metal' and that category still exists today … and we were, for some strange reason, nominated. And at the time no one paid any attention to the fact that we were nominated. There was not a peep out of anyone. Because they thought there's no way JETHRO TULL are gonna win it. Nor IGGY POP, nor JANE'S ADDICTION. It's going to be METALLICA because they were the huge, new, straight-out-of-the-box, enormous, hit talent that year and everybody took it for granted that METALLICA were gonna win the Grammy, including METALLICA themselves. And when it was ordered to JETHRO TULL, to a barrage of boos and hisses and gasps of disbelief, I'd like to think that it wasn't that the six thousand voting members of the National Academy Of Recording Arts And Sciences were voting for JETHRO TULL as a heavy rock band or a heavy metal band. They gave us the award because we were a bunch of nice guys who never won a Grammy before. And sad to relate, even after all these years, there is still no category for best one-legged flute player. Otherwise, I'd be winning it every year."

He continues, "And as we said at the time, METALLICA were an exciting new band. and they will be sure to win the Grammy next year and indeed they did. And to prove the point that heavy metal bands do have a sense of humor, they took out a full page ad in Billboard when they won the Grammy, thanking their record producer, their record company, their mums, their dads, their brothers, the family dog and JETHRO TULL for not bringing out a new album that year."
