Jethro Tull’s multi-platinum-selling smash on Hybrid Stereo SACD!

Remastered by Chris Bellman from the original master tapes

Analogue Productions presents another classic title on Hybrid Stereo SACD — Jethro Tull’s multi-platinum-selling smash Aqualung. Originally released in March 1971, the album has sold in excess of 7 million copies worldwide, achieving Top Ten chart status in both the U.K. and U.S.. Aqualung’s success signaled a turning point in the band’s career, making Jethro Tull a major radio and touring act.

Recorded at Island Records’ studio in London, it was their first album with John Evan as a full-time member, their first with new bassist Jeffrey Hammond, and last album featuring Clive Bunker on drums. Aqualung is regarded, despite the band’s disagreement, as a concept album featuring a central theme of “the distinction between religion and God.” Something of a departure from the band’s previous work, the album features more acoustic material than previous releases; and-inspired by photographs of homeless people on the Thames Embankment taken by singer Ian Anderson’s wife Jennie-contains a number of recurring themes, addressing religion along with Anderson’s own personal experiences.
