Calling all art/prog rockers! Following the release of the sequel to Jethro Tull's Thick as a Brick in April, the epic masterpiece got special treatment earlier this month in the form of a 40th anniversary special collectors edition CD/DVD and a double LP.
The Thick as a Brick collectors edition CD/DVD features a new 5.1 stereo mix, as well as a DTS & Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound mix, plus cool extras like the original newspaper that accompanied the release, and rare photos and memorabilia from the recording and touring sessions, all packaged in a 104-page hardback book. It's also available as a 180 gram audiophile double LP that collects both versions of the album along with a 72-page book.
