Britain’s Jethro Tull sowed the seeds that would become its flowering brand of progressive rock three albums into their career. Their third album, Benefit, is a welcome transition away from the blues-rock that characterized their earlier material. This 40th anniversary special edition was remixed and remastered by Steve Wilson.

If Steven Wilson’s remixes of albums by Yes and XTC aren’t enough surround sound excitement for you, then check this out: Jethro Tull’s third album, 1970′s Benefit, is being reissued as a 2CD/1DVD set featuring the talents of the Porcupine Tree frontman. Benefit was, perhaps, the first step in Tull’s immersion in the greater world of progressive rock. The quintet moved away from the blues influences of their last two records toward a more heavier sound.

Benefit was the album on which the Jethro Tull sound solidified around folk music, abandoning blues entirely. Beginning with the opening number, "With You There to Help Me," Anderson adopts his now-familiar, slightly mournful folksinger/sage persona, with a rather sardonic outlook on life and the world; his acoustic guitar carries the melody, joined by Martin Barre's electric instrument for the crescendos.

Benefit is the third album by Jethro Tull. It was released in April 1970. It was the first album to feature John Evan on keyboards (albeit as a session player), and the last to feature Glenn Cornick on bass guitar. It achieved number 3 in the UK album charts. The album is heavier than its predecessor, Stand Up, and many of the tracks feature more elaborate arrangements than Tull's earlier material, for example, backwards flute on "With You There To Help Me" and backwards piano and sped up guitar on "Play In Time".

When Jethro Tull released Benefit in 1970, it signaled a new, more progressive musical direction for the English band. It also became one of the best-known albums of their career, which is going strong more 60 million records and 40 years later. The Grammy winning group is revisiting that pivotal album with a 2-CD/DVD-Audio collector's edition, newly re-mixed by Steven Wilson and reissued with a lot of bonus tracks, and omes with a DVD-Audio disc of a Surround Sound mix, plus UK and USA running orders and more…

Jethro Tull - Benefit (1970) {Japan Mini LP Edition 2001}

Tull's third album finds them pulling definitively away from their blues-rock beginnings and heading towards the folk-influenced prog-rock that would become their trademark. It captures a brief, crucial moment in the band's life. They hadn't yet adopted the complex, medieval-oriented approach of their most famous works, but they had progressed enough to record some of Ian Anderson's most unpretentious, personal and affecting songs. Instead of courtly prog-rock or Cream-ish electric blues, BENEFIT is full of visceral, electrified folk-rock. The light, acoustic-flavored "With You There to Help Me" and "Inside" are full of thoughtful passion. The harder-edged "To Cry You a Song" and "Teacher" are examples of Tull's ever-present way with a hooky riff. For those distrustful of fancy time signatures and complex song suites, a strong case could be made for BENEFIT as Tull's most satisfying effort.

...К 1970 году Jethro Tull зарекомендовали себя в Штатах как одна из лучших концертных групп. Однако при этом они почти позабыли свою родину. Правда, в январе 1970 года в Англии был издан сингл с песнями "Witch's Promise" и "Teacher", первая из которых заняла четвертое место в таблицах популярности. Но их третий альбом под названием "Benefit", выпущенный в апреле, продавался хуже, чем все записанные ранее, хотя достиг в мае третьего места в британских чартах и сразу же стал "золотым" в Америке, оккупировав 11-ю позицию. Несомненно, это очень сильная и зрелая работа группы, на которой музыканты достигли определенной гармонии между тяжелой для восприятия музыкой и не менее сложной поэзией с явным социальным контекстом, особенно в таких песнях, как "For Michael Collins, Jeffrey And Me", "And To Cry You A Song" и "Nothing To Say"...

Stand Up is the second studio album by the British rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1969. Stand Up represents the first album project on which Anderson was in full control of the music and lyrics. The result was an eclectic album with various styles appearing in its songs, yet an album which remained somewhat in the blues rock mould, which would be the last such album from Jethro Tull. The album quickly went to number 1 in the UK charts. It was released again in November 2016 in a box set with two CDs and one DVD, named Stand Up - The Elevated Edition. The box contains rare and previously unreleased music (such as an alternate take of "Bourée", BBC tracks, radio spots) including new stereo and 5.1 mixes of the album and bonus tracks by Steven WIlson, and a live presentation, from a concert in Sweden in 1969, also remixed by Wilson.

The group's second album, with Anderson (vocals, flute, acoustic guitars, keyboards, balalaika), Martin Barre (electric guitar, flute), Clive Bunker (drums), and Glen Cornick (bass), solidified the group's sound. There is still an element of blues, but except for "A New Day Yesterday," it is far more muted than on their first album, as Mick Abrahams' blues stylings are largely absent from Martin Barre's playing…

Jethro Tull's second album-length composition, A Passion Play is very different from – and not quite as successful as – Thick as a Brick. Ian Anderson utilizes reams of biblical (and biblical-sounding) references, interwoven with modern language, as a sort of a rock equivalent to T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland. As with most progressive rock, the words seem important and profound, but their meaning is anyone's guess ("The ice-cream lady wet her drawers, to see you in the Passion Play…"), with Anderson as a dour but engaging singer/sage (who, at least at one point, seems to take on the role of a fallen angel)…
