The original 1979 album remixed to stereo by Steven Wilson, pressed on 180g black vinyl. This release comes with 24-page booklet and printed inner sleeve containing lyrics.

Stormwatch is the twelfth studio album by Jethro Tull, released in September 1979. The album is often considered the last in a trio of folk rock albums released by the band at the end of the 1970s, alongside Songs from the Wood (1977) and Heavy Horses (1978). The album’s themes deal mostly with the environment, climate and seaside living, and were heavily inspired by the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where frontman Ian Anderson had recently purchased property.

Stormwatch was notably the last Tull album to feature the ‘classic’ line-up of the 1970s, as drummer Barrie ‘Barriemore’ Barlow and keyboardists John Evan and Dee Palmer all left or were fired from the band in the months after the album’s tour concluded in April 1980, while bassist John Glascock died from heart complications in November 1979 during the tour. Glascock’s playing is largely absent on the album as a result of his medical issues, with Anderson playing bass on all but three tracks.
