SET OF 5 ORIGINALS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 5 Album Set (Audio CD)
Useless to discuss music - if you're reading this, then you might know almost everything about Jethro Tull. I would like to review the package itself in case anybody is considering to buy this. Outer cardboard box contain 5 original albums in mini-vynil replica covers. But bear in mind all 5 albums inserted in simple cardboard cover - if original was fold out this is not. But front and back original illustrations are retained neatly. No inner sleeves, no booklets, no lyrics. Released in Australia in 2012 but here's a breakdown of each album. A Passion Play and Songs From The Wood are the same remasters as released in regular european jewel cases in 2003 with the same bonus tracks. Minstrel In The Gallery and Too Old To Rock'n'Roll are the same remasters as released in regular european jewel cases in 2002 with the same bonus tracks. The only problem is Aqualung - no bonuses and nothing is said about remastering. And as mentioned above the cover is not folded out. Overall impression is very good - sound quality and vynil replicas are welcome because japanese releases in the same form are many-many times more expensive. But this is a steal! This is highly recommended in case you are neither a die-hard fan, nor you do not own japanese editions. But this is the cheapiest way to obtain 5 originals at the price of one or two CD's.
