This version of Jethro Tull's Stand Up
is a digitally remastered and expanded deluxe three disc (two CDs + DVD-Audio) edition of the British band's 1969 sophomore album. Includes 11 bonus tracks on disc one plus a bonus CD containing a 1970 live show from Carnegie Hall. The DVD-Audio disc contains a mix of the same Carnegie Hall show in 5.1 surround sound plus an interview with Ian Anderson.
"Stand Up makes for a substantial and appealing package. The original album, a winning combination of brisk, cartwheeling rockers... is now augmented with an extravagant clutch of bonus tracks - contemporaneous singles and BBC sessions - and entire CD given over to the band's slavering 1970 Carnagie Hall performance. Swaggering chops with a concomitant cult of personality? They simply couldn't fail."
