5.0 out of 5 stars 'Songs' Remastered, 10 Mar 2003
This review is from: Songs From The Wood (Audio CD)
This is the latest release in the ongoing remastering of the whole Tull back catalogue. As well as the original tracks from the 1977 album, this disk comes with two bonus tracks, the studio track 'Beltane', originally planned as a b-side to 'The Whistler' single, but shelved at the last moment, and only finally released on the '20 Years of Jethro Tull' boxed set and a live version of 'Velvet Green', culled from the legendary 1977 BBC 'sight and Sound in Concert' recording, and similarly released in the '20 years' set. This was the album that won me over as a life-long Tull fan, and is regularly cited among their favourites by long-time followers of the band and prog-afficionados alike. A complex blend of electric rock, accoustic folk-driven material, and rich keyboard and percussive orchestration, it benefits more than most albums from the greater depth and texture brought out by the remastering process. The album is a must for all collections, and it's definitely worth upgrading to this version from the original CD version if you've got the cash.
