Jethro Tull premiere unreleased track in NZ before new album release

Concerts & Events 16/11/2016

The Sound are excited to share with you the previously unreleased "Bouree - Morgan Version" ahead of the release of STAND UP (THE ELEVATED EDITION) this Friday.


Jethro Tull's second album, STAND UP, marked an early turning point for the band with the addition of guitarist Martin Barre along with Ian Anderson's introduction of folk-rock influences to the group's blues-based sound. Released in the summer of 1969, Stand Up rose quickly to the top of the U.K. Albums Chart, and eventually earned gold certification in the U.S.

STAND UP (THE ELEVATED EDITION) is a deluxe version of the original album as a 2CD/1DVD set. The first disc features Steven Wilson's new stereo mixes of the original album, along with a number of rare recordings, including the unreleased version of "Bouree." Other highlights include four songs recorded at the BBC, plus stereo single mixes for "Living In The Past" and "Driving Song." The second disc captures Jethro Tull performing live in Sweden, where the band opened for Jimi Hendrix in January 1969. Rounding out the disc are mono single mixes for "Living In The Past" and "Driving Song," plus two radio spots promoting the album. The DVD includes concert footage of the band performing "To Be Sad Is A Mad Way To Be" and "Back To The Family." The disc also features Steven Wilson's remix of the original album in PCM stereo and DD/DTS 5.1 surround sound; a 96/24 flat transfer of the original stereo master tapes; plus a 96/24 flat transfer of the original mono and stereo mixes of "Living In The Past" and "Driving Song."
