Jethro Tull / Heavy Horses: New Shoes Edition / five-disc bookset

Steven Wilson 5.1 and stereo mixes • 96-page booklet • Incredible value

The latest in a run of fine Jethro Tull deluxe reissues gallops into view in February – Heavy Horses: New Shoes Edition. Just like the 40th anniversary edition of Songs From The Wood released in May, this one also marks four decades since the original album’s release and is a five-disc bookset.

Heavy Horses was the second in a trilogy of folk rock albums by the progressive folk-rockers – following Songs From The Wood (1977) and preceding Stormwatch (1979) – and its songs inspired by horses and agricultural life went down well on both sides of the Atlantic. Top 20 chart positions in the UK and America were backed up by critical praise for its melodies and instrumentation, and the flute-playing of lead singer and flautist Ian Anderson.

“As a child, my big passion was to get off the leash and explore the local wooded and leafy suburbs,” recalls Anderson. “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.”

The ‘New Shoes Edition’ kicks off with a Steve Wilson stereo remix of the original album plus nine ‘associated recordings’ (seven of which are previously unreleased) on the first CD, and a live 1978 concert from Berne, Switzerland is spread across CDs two and three.

The two DVDs feature 97 audio and video tracks, with studio work (including bonus tracks) remixed to 5.1 (and stereo) by Steven Wilson and live material handled similarly by Jakko Jakszyk. These discs also include a flat transfer of the original mix of the album and promotional video footage and two period TV ads. An embarrassment of riches!

All of this is packaged up in a 96-page book, featuring a written history of the album and corresponding tour, including complete lyrics for the album and bonus tracks, track-by-track annotation by Ian Anderson, rare photos and exclusive interviews with musicians Maddy Prior and Darryl Way, and studio engineer Colin Leggett.

Heavy Horses: New Shoes Edition is released on 9 February 2018. Update: 14 Dec: The label have been in touch directly with SDE to confirm that typo on the lyric quote on the front cover (“trembling sky” should read “tumbling sky”) has been corrected in time for production.
