New Career Spanning 50th Anniversary Jethro Tull 3CD Set, 50 For 50

Jethro Tull has been one of the more active bands in presenting complete and definitive updates of their entire catalog. For many fans, that has been a boon in keeping a valid and refreshing audio experience (along with assorted previously unreleased stuff, era live sets, and demos, etc.)  within our grasp. If you ask me, it’s necessary to many of us to maintain a symbiotic relationship between band and fan.

On May 25, Rhino and Parlophone Records will release a career-spanning collection of fifty classic Jethro Tull tracks, all personally curated by Ian Anderson. Without question, the track-list of 50 For 50 is a ‘best of’ collection but goes a huge leap beyond that. With representative songs from each album over their fifty year period, this set presents a great overview of the band, the like that can only be reproduced in equal worth by your own created playlist.

Before we go further, let me note to you that none of these tracks are newly remastered. They will present the last remastering (or best last remastering) of each song.

In addition to the 3CD, 50-song overview, there will be a single CD with a selected fifteen songs, and will be called 50th Anniversary Collection.
