Minstrel in the Gallery was the eighth LP by Jethro Tull and the last to feature the longtime line up of Dunfermline-born Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, John Evans, Barrie Barlow and Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond. To celebrate the classic rock album’s 40th anniversary it has now been remastered and expanded. The new version features b-sides, live recordings, studio outtakes, session material and footage of the band performing in Paris in 1975. The presentation case also includes an 80-page booklet featuring an extensive history of the album, track-by-track annotations by Ian Anderson, lyrics, tour itinerary and rare and unseen photographs.
Heavyweight vinyl and standard cd editions of the album will be available soon. More information here.
