A Slipstream Jethro Tull CD_DVD
A new direction for a new decade, 'A' marked a radical departure for Jethro Tull revealing a synth dominated sound far removed from the more rustic approach on preceding releases 'Stormwatch' and 'Heavy Horses'.
 
Initially conceived as an Ian Anderson solo venture, the album featured prominent contributions from Eddie Jobson (Roxy Music, Zappa, UK) on keyboards and electric violin and introduced Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg on bass.
 
This re-mastered edition of 'A' comes with its 1981 visual companion 'Slipstream', which contains concert footage from the 'A' tour and studio videos of classic material such as 'Dun Ringill' and 'Sweet Dream'.
 
Please note the DVD is PAL.
