Jethro Tull

The Broadsword And The Beast (The 40th Anniversary Monster Edition): 5CD + 3DVD


Sorry Sold Out

Jethro Tull’s 1982 album ‘The Broadsword and the Beast’ will be celebrated in a brand-new 4LP set, The Vinyl Edition, out 1st September 2023.

This 4 LP set (one a double LP) in a card slipcase will feature a 28-page 12x12 booklet and include The Broadsword And The Beast (Steven Wilson remix of original LP), Double-Edged Sword (Steven Wilson mixes of additional Broadsword recordings March 1981 to January 1982) plus The Maison Rouge Demos.

‘The Broadsword and the Beast’ is the 14th studio album by Jethro Tull, released on 10 April 1982 and according to Ian Anderson in the liner notes of the remastered CD, contains some of Jethro Tull’s best music. This album's masterful storytelling, accompanied by Ian Anderson's unmistakable flute melodies, garnered critical acclaim and has become a fan favourite over the years. The album mixes electronic sound, provided by Peter-John Vettese (a characteristic that would be explored further on the next album Under Wraps) with acoustic instruments.

‘The Broadsword and the Beast’ is a cross between the synthesiser sound of the 1980s and the folk-influenced style that Tull had in the previous decade.
