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.

[…] the band started with Songs from the Wood in 1977 and continued the following year with Heavy Horses (both of which have already been reissued). Stormwatch was the final album to feature the classic […]

Reyid

I am continually invstigating online for tips that can help me. Thank you!

J

Echoing the question from CJL. I bought this at Amazon and DVD2 is badly scuffed. I want a replacement disc that is not scuffed. How do I get that? Is there a way to contact the label/manufacturer??? I see no point in wasting time with Amazon only to get another set in exactly the same condition (unless I get extremely lucky in the draw which seems unlikely – from various music forums I participate in this is a common issue for many folks who bought this set).

I hazily recall there also being an issue with the DVD in the Thick As a Brick set (some type of mastering error?). At the time I was able to get a replacement disc but I cannot recall how that worked.

Mathew Lauren

I’ve been through this process with Amazon many times for different reasons.

Choices are:

to re-order thru AMAZON (over and over AND OVER) and complain (over and over and OVER), NICELY!

If you still have a problem in 6 mos and NO ONE from the manufacturer or Ian/JT Mgt/Parlophone or (my favourites here in America – NOT!) Rhino/WARNER MUSIC GROUP or even WEA, Int’l., then start buying thru 3rd Party under the A to Z guarantee and “hope” for a bookset from a different batch.

It’s totally: CAVEAT EMPTOR

…with the exception that Ian walks his talk. He cares. He doesn’t gouge his fan$, he provides great product and if this is a widespread problem, he will request something be done.

The “Stand Up” (elevated edition) cd/DVD 5.1 bookset problems were an AMAZON.com (U.S.) issue. Pallets of booksets were delivered, damaged! Scuffs on the “Songs from the Wood” concert DVD 2 don’t affect play, but, it seems few have complained. Again, TAAB cd/dvd 5.1 release was a debacle with many issues (google it) forcing (even) SW to chime in (to maintain his stellar reputation with his fans), which caused Ian and EMI to call for the manufacture of NEW and replacement 5.1 DVDs (google it).

This issue simply may not be widespread enough for anyone from the supply-side to act.

Kari Niemela

Berne concert has just 5 repeated songs from the Bursting Out. Great stuff!

CJL

PS Paul/anybody know how to go about contacting Parlophone Records to see if they’re aware of the problems with the live dvd & to see if they’re going to re-manufacture the discs? I don’t want to keep sending my defective copies back to Amazon on the off-chance that I may get a pristine dvd2.

CJL

Same problem here. Returned my initial copy because of scuff marks on dvd 2 & have just received my second copy from Amazon & the same dvd has the same three bad scuff marks on the playing surface.

Dave

Hi .ordered from burning shed same problem. Emailed rhino and parlophone as yet no response
As stated no point returning just to get the same disc problem again ? Reading reviews I think its quite a common fault ! That does need addressing . any help appreciated Paul ?

Simon Stokes

Has anyone found the song A Town in England. It is mentioned in the booklet and the promos for the album but I cannot locate it on any disc?

Sundiegojc

It is on DVD 1, but apparently not menu-accessible (and why the hell would Ian and coterie make such a gaffe!!!). I routinely rip my multichannel music DVDs to a hard drive. That’s how I discovered it on the disc, while using my PC ripping program.
The track is only 1 minute in length, and the only way I could play the song was to select Track (Title) 5 from the software’s track navigator.
Like you I was unable to find any mention of it, much less select it from the Disc menus.

Simon

The DVD problem is fixed by lightly cleaning using a cleaning cloth in an outward direction from the centre of the disc. You don’t need to clean far from the centre. That is where the problem is in itiatlising the DVD.

Doug

Strangely, it’s within the same ‘track’ as Botanic Man Theme and plays after that piece and after an extended bit of silence. No idea why it wasn’t given a separate track.

Mathew Lauren

I can’t find “A Town in England.” After “Botanic Man Theme” 2.0/5.1 plays, the screen fades to black and the album is over.

Mathew Lauren

So, according the the Rhino website: “Botanic Man Theme” and “A Town in England” are ONE song “BMT/ATIE” lasting 2:47. Is this correct? I don’t know this music and it simply sounds like a “Botanic Man” Instrumental.

…and Ftr, it all sounds good to me.

Julian H

“A Town in England” can be accessed on the DVD by clicking on the horseshoe which appears in one of the menus (I forget which one). It’s slightly hidden :)

Paul

Received mine today from amazon, superb set and fantastic album, however check your dvd 2 in the set, the one in the carded page, mine is badly marked, at the moment no tracks seem to be affected but there are 3 big scuffs on the disc in different places.

Colin Crammond

I received my copy, pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk, yesterday and my DVD disc 2 also has the same defect on the disc. It looks badly scuffed, however it played without any problems. Quality control needs to sort this out, otherwise lots of people will be returning their copies without even trying them first.

Mathew Lauren

I, too have had the same problem with multiple, JT booksets over the last couple of years — mostly the concert DVDs, scuffed, but play fine. Ian needs to step in here, b/c EVERY replacement DVD comes scuffed. I’m obviously not the only one who has suffered this. As well, the “Stand Up” (elevated edition) cd/dvd 5.1 bookset was poorly constructed and EVERY copy from Amazon.com has arrived, SEVERLY damaged.

This on top of the 2012 40e “THICK AS A BRICK” cd/dvd 5.1 debacle. Ian would be wise to re-release this bookset with extras. “Benefit” as well could stand a 5.1 bookset RE (maybe combined with any 4-track “This Was” recordings that would benefit (pun intended) from surround treatment. That would make a nice bookset and address this issue and request by the JT cd/5.1 DVD bookset fans.

Of course as a completist, let’s NOT forget a cd/5.1 DVD TAAB2 bookset. Maybe a TAAB/TAAB2 cd/5.1
DVD bookset combo would be the appropriate and profitable approach here.

jd

Just played through the stereo remix CD w/ studio phones while reading the first bit of the book. The main reason I buy these sets are for the 5.1 remixes but damn, this stereo remix of the album proper is genius! Sound quality is stellar and the new mix is a revelation! … And the book! I love the detailed recollections of the band about the recording process. Such an informative and engaging read! Can’t wait to go through the rest of the studio material, the live album and especially, the aforementioned 5.1 mix. If the 5.1 is as good as the stereo, we’re all in for a real treat. Bravo!

Adam

I’m no Tull expert and am learning about them through these reissues. The ‘Heavy Horses’ set has arrived today, and wonder if any aficionado can tell me why the b side of ‘Moths’, ‘Life is a Long Song’ isn’t included here?

Adam

Ignore my comment! It’s an old track so why should it be on this set??! Doh!

Colin Crammond

Hi Adam, ‘Life’s A Long Song’s was included on the ‘Aqualung’ deluxe edition.

Florentino Stabile

Thanks, Paul.

No band… maybe Marillion.. as well that give their fanbase respect….. price their reissues very discreetly…. giving them everything including the kitchen sink. And yes, Marillion are doing the bookstyle reissues as well…. as they did with Misplaced Childhood last year.

Chrysalis and Parlophone are at the top of the music industry for these things. I would stand on top of a mountain and proclaim it.

God bless you all and keep them coming.
Sincerely,

Tull and Marillion maniac… music aficionado with a sensitive wallet.

Mathew Lauren

+1

Well said, Florentino.

Sensitive wallet or not, there is NO REASON to fleece ones’ fans!

Calling ALL musical artists: Keep the discrete, surround-sound booksets coming!

Stephen Braithwaite

Really looking forward to this. It’s one of my favourite Tull albums along with Songs from the Wood.

FRENCHY ERIC

Underestimated band. Great album, in my JT top 5 !
Fantastic good value box sets too…
Anderson has a remarkable vocal signature and ranks in my opinion amongst the TOP 50 best british rock singers.

Berg

What is the point of having an album on DVD? Why not add just concert DVD’s to these sets? I want to play music on my CD stereo and in the car. I feel the DVD album is just added fluff.

Mar

The DVD format allows them to include all sorts of extras, flat transfers, DTS 5.1, higher bit rate to name a few. If you want to see a great example of bonus material look at the content of the XTC releases,. If you allow 850MB for CD, 4,7GB for DVD and 25GB for Blu-Ray, XTC’s Skylarking would be around 12 CDs.

Mathew Lauren

I just p/u “Skylarking” at my local Cd Traders this past weekend as part of their quarterly, weekend sales-days. It is packed with goodies. Good point!

Kari Niemela

Loads of unrealeased recordings, complete concerts and exact session data and other interesting reading. Truly for fans!

Kenneth

Wow. Tull does not **** around. Wish all artists could do this. I hope they make more than some of these greedy sets that have been put out. This puts Hotel California box to absolute shame. Looks like an outstanding value.

David

Agreed! My theoretical upper limit on buying new boxed sets is to $10/disc + $10 for packaging. Obviously, Jethro Tull does very well with this pricing philosophy while the Eagles do very poorly with this pricing philosophy.

Andrew Gaines

These are the best quality sets (in terms of both content and packaging and pricing) of re-issues I have come across. I even went back and bought the Passion Play box set despite not liking the album! I was rewarded there by the near completed album they made before they scrapped it. Excellent value.

I am also hoping they re-issue Broadsword. I like the album but, as someone else said , the quality of the outtakes is very impressive. A concert from that period would be good too.

Mathew Lauren

+1. Touché

Jayson T.

In reference to the outtake “Living In These Hard Times,” I mean the “Heavy Horses” recording sessions.

Jayson T.

The mother of all box sets is going to be my favorite Tull album, and from what I understand is the 2nd highest selling Tull record in all of Europe, and that’s “The Broadsword And The Beast.” Ian wrote almost 4 albums worth of material for that record, and many of the tunes are better than the songs on the original album (like “Overhang”). I cannot wait for that one because there are bound to be alternate versions and all sorts of goodies we haven’t heard before. BTW – “Living In These Hard Times” is one of the 3 or 4 best outtakes not included on a Jethro Tull album. For me, it’s the 3rd best song he recorded during these sessions. I have no idea why it was left off. Awesome song.

JR L

Crest of a Knave! Please?

Bob

Is there a flat transfer of the original Heavy Horses stereo mix on either DVD? Thanks.

Julian H

“The latest in a run of fine Jethro Tull deluxe reissues gallops into view in February”

When I read that sentence I looked at the writer. That’s a typical Justyn Barnes line, I guess!

Kevin Brown

If anyone is interested the latest photo of Heavy Horses with the 5 discs on UK Amazon site clearly now show that the booklet cover has been corrected and now says”tumbling” instead of “trembling”

Michel D.

Now available at Amazon Canada.

purpledaniel

Stormwatch…probably in 2019.

Bruce

Does any one knows if
STORMWATCH
is in the pipeline?

movement

Thanks @Dan T.

BritinDetroit

Tull-Anderson-Wilson cannot be touched for the quality and affordability of their reissues.

If you feel like an early (seasonal) gift to yourself, go to Amazon.com where “Stand Up, The Elevated Edition” is just $17.87

peter chrisp

Tull’s reissues are certainly the best for prices extraordinary and i am comparing that to the over inflated anniversary edition of Hotel California but as you say what can you do

purpledaniel

And by the way, we don´t know how many tracks from Berne were used for Bursting Out. But Ian Anderson had at least two other concerts to chose from and yet he has chosen Berne. My guess is that Bursting Out used few tracks from Berne.

purpledaniel

To SDE staff,

regarding the update: did the label confirm release date for february 9 or is it effectively pushed to march 2nd?

SDE Hall of Fame

No news on release date…

Terry G

I assume the live discs are the same as BO, because Claude Nobbs does the introduction on BO.

purpledaniel

Pushed back to march 2nd, probably due to the trembling horse.

Michael Weber

GREAT NEWS! JT and SW have been doing such a wonderful job with these reissues. You get so much for a more than fan-friendly price. Thank you!!

purpledaniel

Defect fixed!

Charles Christopher

While it’s too prominent not to be embarrassing, if the only fault of this set turns out to be a lyric mis-print on the cover, I’d say that’s forgivable compared to the general quality of the Tull sets. Compared to some of the mistakes I’ve read about on these forums, I’d be willing to forgive (and there are several albums where lyric misprints were on the original albums, like the one on Days of Future Past).

Dan T.

Christopher – I think the defect actually adds to its uniqueness. I’m hoping mine arrives with the error, actually. I think it could be a rare copy if that’s the case… ;-)

purpledaniel

Wilson is not on Broadword because Broadsword isn´t still in the Pipeline. But he has confirmed interested in remixing it. Tull will e busy in 2018 with the 50 anniversary celebrations and releases.

Dave

Happy new year !

j

Ian & the gang nail another one. The Eagles, Roxy and countless others could learn a thing or 2 from Mr. Anderson. It is super rare to find such great value @ this price point. I really hope they go all the way to Catfish Rising & Roots to Branches. That would really make my day.

So I keep reading contradictions. Is Wilson on Board or Broadsword or no?
J

Stephen Leigh

Man… One day. May I just throw into the ring that Jack A Lynn is one of the greatest outtakes ever? Would love to hear this version.

Colin Harper

On a classic rock tangent… have you noticed the 30 disc Wishbone Ash set that’s been announced recently, Paul?

peter chrisp

Yes i saw that listed too a massive Wishbone Ash box set

Steve j

One of my favourite JT Albums really looking forward to this release to add to my “book” edition collection
Just waiting for the right deal to come along as it will.Always chuckle at the Amazon starting price

Dav

My favourite Tull album so a must buy for me.

Klaus

As no one else seems to have noticed so far: Thanks for your first ever proper announcement on an SDE that has yet to be released, Justyn Barnes.

Justyn is an occasional contributor to SDE… he has posted quite a bit before, although not for a while!

Another must have Tull, have them all, amazing value for money. At least Tull know how to not fleece fans.

David McIntyre

A personal fave, from Moths to One brown Mouse, great relive from my childhood. Will purchase

David Hartley

Thanks, Paul, for the notification. Pre-ordered and great value, so cheers to the record company as well.

Someone please can tell me if Heavy Horses is the last to be release as deluxe edition or the reissue program go ahead up to the last Chrisalys album which is Roots to Branches. I’d love to hear all the material from the vault. There’s planty of them !!!!

Michael

God bless Ian Anderson! What a wonderful deluxe box set at a price I can actually afford next year without compromising Christmas festivities for my family and friends this year. I am more than pleased with the other JT deluxe book-style box sets and looking forward to adding this one to my collection!

Paul Wren

Terrific price on this.

Andy

I shall pre-order this one just like I have done with all the others. Really looking forward to it. I don’t have facility to play the 5.1 and I’m starting to amass quite a few of them now, which is getting frustrating.

Pal

You don’t know what you are missing. Don’t you have a friend with a decent surround system to listen to at least one of those SW 5.1 mixes? That experience would make you assemble a small 5.1 rig – all you need is a dvd player, an AV receiver, 5 bookshelf speakers and a sub.

@ Andy, there are some 5.1 headphones out there that produce DISCREET 5.1 signals (not emulated 5.1), and they’re cheaper than buying a whole system. Usually requires a USB connection to a computer (and listening to the lossy mix), but it’s better than sticking to the stereo (which, I will add, are still quite head-spinning at times in terms of clarity).

Wow. Yeah, I’ll echo the “I wish I liked Jethro Tull” sentiment.

This, along with the INXS Kick set is really the best and latest examples of reissues with great value for money. I mean, 3 CDs and 2 DVDs bursting with content for under $40 (US)?

Jeebus. Take a page, everyone else.

Adding this to my pre-order pile. I love the Tull sets, they are a genuinely beautiful product.
