Jethro Tull‘s 1972 classic album Thick As A Brick celebrates it’s 50th anniversary with a new half-speed master vinyl reissue, complete with the original 12-page newspaper packaging that came with the original version of the album.
The new reissue will be released on July 29 through PLG UK Catalog. At the same time, the 40th anniversary CD/DVD special collector’s edition, now a rare find, will also be reissued on October 7.
The new vinyl version is a half-speed master of Steven Wilson’s 2012 remix, which comes housed in a replica of the original St. Cleve Chronicle & Linwell Advertiser newspaper, which was originally written by Ian Anderson, Jeffrey Hammond and John Evan, although the lyrics for the album were credited at the time to the fictitious child character, Gerald Bostock, whose parents supposedly lied about his age.
Thick As A Brick was the first album to feature drummer Barriemore Barlow, who featured alongside Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, John Evan and Jeffrey Hammond. The album was created in response to critics wrongly labelling the band’s previous album, Aqualung, as a concept album.

JETHRO TULL Benefit (Rare 1971 UK third issue of the 1970 10-track LP on the pink rim Island palm tree label, picture sleeve. This was the only UK issue to be pressed on an Island label (the first two pressings were on the green Chrysalis label).The picture sleeve was never laminated and as such has a few light crease marks & faint ring wear to show for its age but remains a nice intact example with legible spine. The vinyl reveals just the a fewlightsurface scuffs and remains excellent. This is becoming as hard to find as top condition copies of earlier pressings, and is only the third copy we have ever had ILPS9123)
