Jethro Tull A (A La Mode) Boxset Ian Anderson Steven Wilson
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of one of Jethro Tull’s most radical musical departures, a 3CD/3DVD casebound book deluxe edition of A.
 
The album introduced a new sound and a new line-up including Dave Pegg and Eddie Jobson (who features prominently on keyboards and violin). 
 
Originally intended as a solo record by Ian Anderson, the album’s single-letter title refers to the studio tapes, which were marked “A” for Anderson. When the album was completed, the group’s label Chrysalis insisted that it be credited to Jethro Tull.
 
Including:
 
- The original album and associated recordings remixed in DTS and Dolby AC 3, 5.1 Surround, and stereo 96/24 LPCM  by Steven Wilson
- A full concert from the LA Sports Arena recorded in August 1980 mixed by Steven Wilson in DTS and Dolby AC 3, 5.1 Surround, and stereo 96/24 LPCM
-  A flat transfer of the original 1980 master at 96/24 LPCM stereo
-  Five unreleased pieces from the recording sessions (including the unreleased track Coruisk)
- A DVD of the Slipstream video remixed by Steven Wilson in DTS and Dolby AC 3, 5.1 Surround, and stereo 96/24 LPCM
