Description

The 40th Anniversary edition of Aqualung (originally released in 2011) reissued in the 2CD/2DVD hardback book format that has become standard for the Jethro Tull remix series.

CD 1 contains the remixed album, which is now also mastered by Steven Wilson (the original 40th anniversary edition was given a controversial mastering that was not by Steven). CD 2 features additional 1970 and 1971 recordings also remixed and mastered by SW.  The “mastering” in this case consists of simple level matching, no additional EQ was applied to the mixes.

The DVDs include 5.1 surround mixes, hi-res stereo, the 1974 quad mix, and flat transfers of both Aqualung and the Life Is A Long Song EP. Additionally there are 3 surround sound mixes new to this edition: Wond’ring Aloud Again, Just Trying to Be, and Wind Up (early version)
