    Default Jethro Tull 40th Anniversary Edition how good is it?

    So sitting here listening to Aqualung on vinyl like new copy, wondering if I should get this Remaster. I saw it on Amazon it is getting positive Reviews. I probably don't need no coaxing to get this. I plan on talking myself into getting it. Anybody own this, and how are the extra tracks on this one, along with the sound of the remastering?

    Are you talking about this CD?



    If so, I have it, and love it, and least for the songs I like. It seems to have been well mastered.

    For me it was. I needed it to add songs to my music server. Aqualung, Cross Eyed Mary, and Locomotive Breath are the songs I listen to from this CD. They are well recorded. I can't comment on the others.

    My advice, rip the vinyl. I rarely buy CDs unless it's Super Audio or an Audio/Mobile Fidelity remaster.

    Ok after my hazy double bock induced evening I passed out to visions of this Tull Remaster, so upon waking up to a excederin and mountain dew breakfast, I crossed the border into Illinois Moline, and got to the Best Buy as they opened to get this. I'am glad I did it was worth the trip this remaster sounds awesome. I don't get on the Illinois side much so I wore my Hawkeye shirt just the get the Illini natives a little restless. Best remaster I have heard its a cranking at this moment, this has the vinyl beat without a doubt.

    I have this OOP 200g Classic pressing I really like. Also have the 40th anniversary remasters on digital. Much better than the 25th. There was a huge three part thread over at Hoffman’s about the 40th anniversary Aqualung.

    I recommend it, the second Disc is worth the price alone, and as a added bonus you get disc one the best Aqualung has ever sounded, act now and enjoy musical bliss!

    Can't say, never heard the MFSL. Out of the 4 versions on the dvd, plus the cd. I'm sure one of them will tickle your fancy. I prefer the dts 5.1
