Jethro Tull – Songs from the Wood (40th Anniversary Edition – Steven Wilson Remix on 180g Vinyl with 24-Page Booklet)
Pressed on heavyweight 180g vinyl, this 40th anniversary edition features the Steven Wilson remix, and includes a 24-page booklet.
Released on 11 February 1977, Songs from the Wood is the tenth studio album by Jethro Tull. The album is considered to be the first of three folk rock albums released by the band at the end of the 1970s: Songs from the Wood, Heavy Horses (1978) and Stormwatch (1979).
Inspired by English pagan folklore and countryside living, the album signalled a resumption of the band’s wide-ranging folk rock style which combined traditional instruments and melodies with hard rock drums, synthesisers and electric guitars, all laid in the band’s complex progressive rock template. The album was the first Jethro Tull album to include Dee Palmer as an official member of the band, who after eight years of serving as the band’s orchestral arranger had joined as a second keyboardist in early 1976.
The album was well received by critics upon its initial release, who considered the album a return to form for the band.
