Jethro Tull
A Passion Play (Reissue)

Jethro Tull - A Passion Play (Reissue)

A Passion Play is the sixth studio album by Jethro Tull, released in 1973. Like its predecessor, Thick as a Brick (1972), it is a concept album, the theme being the spiritual journey of one man in the afterlife. The release had chart success around the world, hitting # 1 in the US and #13 in the UK.

On this beautiful expanded case-bound book edition, we get the original A Passion Play album and earlier Château d'Hérouville sessions mixed to 5.1 surround sound and stereo by Steven Wilson.
