Jethro Tull Announce Deluxe ‘Benefit’ Reissue

Jethro Tull, 'Benefit'
Chrysalis Records

Jethro Tull‘s third album is getting the deluxe reissue treatment this fall.

‘Benefit,’ released in April 1970, marked a pivotal spot in the band’s catalog, with songs that found them drifting further from the heavily blues-influenced sound of their debut and a lineup that saw keyboardist John Evan arriving just as bassist Glenn Cornick was on his way out. The 10-track set incorporated more progressive elements and more involved production techniques — and it was a sizable hit too, peaking at No. 3 on the U.K. album chart.

On Oct. 29, Rhino Records will release a newly remastered and expanded edition of ‘Benefit’ that adds another CD’s worth of material, as well as a DVD containing 5.1 surround mixes of the album plus bonus tracks. Additionally, the LP is restored to its original U.K. and U.S. running orders and comes in “a handsome booklet filled with rare photographs, an essay by Martin Webb, and interviews with band members.”

Rhino will also offer a digital edition of the record, minus the DVD content, for $14.99; the physical edition is listed at $29.98. Have a look at the CD track listing below.
