180 Gram Vinyl Record
The original 1978 album remixed to stereo by Steven Wilson!
2018 marks 50 years since progressive folk-rock band Jethro Tull jumped onto the British music scene. To kick off this exciting anniversary year, Tull presents the 40th anniversary LP stereo edition of Heavy Horses on Parlophone Records.
Released between Songs From The Wood (1977) and Stormwatch (1979), Heavy Horses was the second of a trilogy of folk rock albums from Jethro Tull. Lead singer and flautist Ian Anderson explained its particular focus on horses and agricultural life saying, "As a child, my big passion was to get off the leash and explore the local wooded and leafy suburbs. 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."
Upon release, Heavy Horses was a Top 20 album on both sides of the Atlantic. Commercial success was met equally with critical praise for its melodies, instrumentation and Anderson's signature flute playing. More recently, critics have described the album as "daring, experimental, literate, and often thrilling", and a "testament to the men who made it."
