Share This:

Jethro+Tull+Stand+Up+2108793_smallJethro Tull’s second album, 1969’s Stand Up, is getting the deluxe treatment this fall from Parlophone Records, which is releasing a 2-CD/1-DVD “Elevated Edition” of the set. Out November 18, the package features rare and unreleased music, plus live footage from a 1969 concert in Sweden.

Stand Up, which peaked at #20 in the U.S. and was eventually certified gold, marked an early turning point for Jethro Tull with the addition of guitarist Martin Barre, along with Ian Anderson’s introduction of folk-rock influences to the group’s blues-based sound.
