40th Anniversary Steven Wilson Stereo Remix!
Released between Songs From The Wood (1977) and Stormwatch (1979), Heavy Horses was the second of a trilogy of folk rock albums from Jethro Tull. Lead singer and flautist Ian Anderson explained its particular focus on horses and agricultural life saying, "As a child, my big passion was to get off the leash and explore the local wooded and leafy suburbs. So it didn't suddenly become new in 1977, it was just that the subject matter fitted what I wanted to write about at the time." Upon release, Heavy Horses was a Top 20 album on both sides of the Atlantic. Commercial success was met equally with critical praise for its melodies, instrumentation and Anderson's signature flute playing. More recently, critics have described the album as "daring, experimental, literate, and often thrilling," and a "testament to the men who made it." Home to the classic cuts "Heavy Horses," "Moths" and "Acres Wild," this 40th anniversary 180g vinyl reissue of the album boasts a new Stereo Remix from Steven Wilson.
