To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Jethro Tull's masterful Thick as a Brick has been reproduced in its original format with the legendary 12-page newspaper package. The vinyl is a half-speed master of Steven Wilson's 2012 remix.

Jethro Tull's Thick As A Brick, released in 1972, was the group's fifth studio album and is noted for containing only one song (in 2 parts). The concept album with the cover resembling the front page of a newspaper, claims to be a musical adaptation of an epic poem written by an 8-year old genius. However, the lyrics were, in reality, written by frontman Ian Anderson. The commercially successful album topped the U.S. charts. Rolling Stone magazine called Thick as a Brick "one of rock's most sophisticated and ground-breaking products."

Formed in 1967, Jethro Tull went on to sell over 60 million albums worldwide and become one of the most commercially successful and eccentric progressive-rock bands.

"A masterpiece in the annals of progressive rock, and one of the few works of its kind that still holds up decades later. Mixing hard rock and English folk music with classical influences, set to stream-of-consciousness lyrics so dense with imagery that one might spend weeks pondering their meaning — assuming one feels the need to do so — the group created a dazzling tour de force, at once playful, profound, and challenging, without overwhelming the listener. The original LP was the best-sounding, best-engineered record Tull had ever released, easily capturing the shifting dynamics between the soft all-acoustic passages and the electric rock crescendos surrounding them." — AllMusic
