Following the release last year of the 40th anniversary edition of Thick As A Brick, on October 29th, Chrysalis Records will release a Collector’s Edition of JETHRO TULL’s Benefit album.

Benefit was Jethro Tull’s third album, first released in April 1970. Transcending the blues influences of their 1969 album Stand Up, it was a much more hard-rocking album which saw the band utilize more advanced studio techniques. It reached number 3 in the UK.

The Collector’s Edition of Benefit plus bonus tracks has been mixed by Steven Wilson and approved by IAN ANDERSON. CD2 is a mono and stereo disc of rare and previously unreleased versions of tracks and singles associated with the period Benefit was released in (more information available on request). The audio only DVD includes a surround sound mix of Benefit, 96/24 tracks of Stereo in UK and US running orders.

In addition, the Collector’s Edition will include a booklet featuring an 8,000 word essay written by Martin Webb, as well as interviews with band members and a selection of photos, some of which are rare and previously unseen.

A vinyl edition featuring the new and previously unreleased Steven Wilson mix of the UK running order of Benefit on 180g heavyweight vinyl, will be released on the same day.
