Hybrid Stereo SACD Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original U.K. Island Analog Tape
Jethro Tull's second album, Stand Up, marked an early turning point for the band with the addition of guitarist Martin Barre along with Ian Anderson's introduction of folk-rock influences to the group's blues-based sound. Released in the summer of 1969, Stand Up rose quickly to the top of the U.K. Albums Chart, and eventually earned gold certification in the U.S.
Stand Up was the first album where Anderson controlled the music and lyrics, resulting in a group of diverse songs that ranged from the swirling blues of "A New Day Yesterday" and the mandolin-fueled rave-up of "Fat Man," to the group's spirited re-working of Johann Sebastian Bach's "Bouree in E Minor." Anderson has called Stand Up his favorite Jethro Tull album, "because that was my first album of first really original music. It has a special place in my heart."
Now with Analogue Productions' Hybrid Stereo SACD release, the best-sounding version of this historic album gives listeners an even richer sonic experience. Clean, balanced, and richly detailed: just the way an Analogue Productions reissue should sound!
