I got very excited when I read the headline in the press, thinking that perhaps this was a new package for 50 years ....... with maybe a super duper live show from the tour..... sadly I was only being delusional!!:doh:

Indeed yes, but some of the later anniversary sets contained associated live shows from the relevant tours.

Unfortunately there are no real quality bootlegs from the TAAB tour, suggesting that there is no suitable material to use ..... shame really.

True but I can't resist having one of those TAAB packages! :bounce::drink:

For me as well, the only other Tull album not named Aqualung I enjoy.  I'd be getting it mostly for the surround mix, but I'm basically not listening to surround music anymore so it's a bit of money to spend for something I may only spin once.

I'm a sucker for deluxe/reissues for albums I cherish.   It's a BUY
