Jethro Tull Classic, Heavy Horses, Gets 3CD/2DVD 40th Anniversary “New Shoes” Edition

It’s nice to see the year of 2017 end on positive notes like we’ve had with some announcements. Normally, this a quiet time but for some reason or other, 2017 has remained somewhat lively, And with this new piece of news, it gets even more lively.

On March 2 of 2018, the next in line of album updates for the Jethro Tull band is Heavy Horses. Originally released in 1978, Heavy Horses followed up the popular Songs From The Wood (1977), with an album every bit as beautifully assembled as its predecessor. And now the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition remix of Heavy Horses naturally follows the 40th Anniversary DE of Songs From The Wood, which was released earlier in 2017.

Expected in this new reissue of Heavy Horses (called the New Shoes Edition) will be the Steven Wilson set of remixes of the original set of nine songs, which will be bolstered by the addition of nine bonus tracks (see list). The two additional CDs will provide a 22-performance track live set from a support show on May 28, 1978 at The Festhalle in Bern, Switzerland. The 2DVDs will provide the SW Stereo hi-res tracks in 96kHz/24-bit. two SW 5.1 Surround Sound remixes (DTS, DD), and a flat transfer of the original Stereo master. and three additional bonus tracks. DVD2 will present the complete May 28, 1978 Bern concert at The Festhalle on video. Closing the DVD off will be four extra videos, two music and two TV ads.

I’m sure the included 96-page book will add the value seen previously in past Jethro Tull Anniversary Editions.

Steven Wilson Remix Updates (Yes, Jethro Tull, Roxy Music, Tears For Fears, XTC)

Yes Tales From Topographic OceansThere has been a slight date change for the upcoming Steven Wilson remix of YESTales From Topographic Oceans that was originally scheduled for September 26. The new date is now October 6. If you were anxiously awaiting this bliss, you’ll have to wait a week longer. His other project works in release planning are King Crimson 40th Anniversary of the Adrian Belew-era titles (Discipline, Beat, Three Of A Perfect Pair) are still scheduled for October 20, XTC‘s Skylarking, which is on the calendar for October 13, and the upcoming Jethro Tull remix of Stand Up, planned for November 18.

Of interest are the finished but unreleased remixes of the Roxy Music debut, and Tears For FearsSeeds Of Love. It’s crazy that the Roxy Music debut has been finished since 2012!

Of even more interest is the discovery of another set of XTC tapes from the Virgin era. Speculation of which title it is is anyone’s game.

Steven Wilson has also stated in a post that he intends to continue work on he extensive Jethro Tull library, and mentioned This Was, Songs From The Wood, Heavy Horses, and Stormwatch in particular. ‘he also states that he’s not interested in ’80s Tull output so it looks like Stormwatch may be the end.

Finally, he obviously is very interested in doing up Kate Bush titles. Keep your fingers crossed.

Personally, I DARE him to consider (then do) Wishbone Ash‘s Argus. OF course, I’d like to see others but if anyone of these might get his attention, it will be Argus.
