Jethro Tull / Original Album Series Volume Two / 5CD collection


Warners are to issue a ‘Volume Two’ of their Jethro Tull Original Album Series box sets, later this month.

The five-CD collection continues where 2014’s volume one left off and features the following albums: Under Wraps (1984), Crest of a Knave (1987), Rock Island (1989), Catfish Rising (1991) and the last album to be issued on Chrysalis Records, 1995’s Roots to Branches.

As usual, these sets offer phenomenal value, with the trade-in of basic card sleeve packaging and a thin card slipcase.

This Jethro Tull Original Album Series Volume Two is part of a new wave of OAS collections and is released on 29 January 2016.

The OAS releases are a clear indicator of the end of the physical CD age…they’re much like the bare bones LP reissues of the 1980s: thin vinyl, single sleeves, no inner sleeves or inserts. Still, it’s the only way to get hold of Tim Buckley’s “Blue Afternoon” on CD I believe, shame they missed off “Starsailor”…


Paul, is it possible to publish a complete list of the new batch of Original Album Series here on your webpage ?
That would make life easier for us collectors :)
Thank from André


+1 to what Andre said.

Under Wraps is just the LP track listing. I bought the cassette at the same time as it had the four extra tracks – ‘Astronomy’, ‘Tundra’, ‘Automotive Engineering’ and ‘General Crossing’. Three of those tracks appeared on the ‘Lap of Luxury’ double 7” single pack. They are available on the proper 2005 CD remaster


Crest.. appears here with is vinyl track listing. The cd (and cassette if I recall correctly) also contained ‘Dogs in the midwinter’ and ‘The waking edge’. Still one of my favourite albums of one legged flute playing. Always liked Rock Island as well. Both feature plenty of Martin Barre’s guitar.
