50th Anniversary Enhanced Edition 4CD & 2DVD Set!
Remixes by Steven Wilson + Tons Of Previously Unreleased Material!
Elegant 100-Page Hardback Book Packaging!

Jethro Tull's 1970 classic Benefit is celebrated in a brand-new 4CD/2DVD set, featuring remixes by Steven Wilson and an abundance of previously unreleased material, all packaged within a deluxe hardback book containing 100 pages of commentary from numerous contributors alongside hordes of images of the band creating and performing their first million-selling album.

Following the successes This Was (1968) and Stand Up (1969), Jethro Tull returned in 1970 with their third studio album in as many years.

Benefit (The 50th Anniversary Enhanced Edition) contains a copious amount of expanded material, building upon the 2013 Steven Wilson remixes. CD3 contains a previously unreleased Steven Wilson remix of Jethro Tull performing at Tanglewood in 1970. Further to that, CD4 contains a newly remastered version of a concert at The Aragon Ballroom in 1970 in mono.

The 100-page book, enclosed within the elegant, hardback book packaging, contains an essay from Martin Webb, who expands upon the 2013 "A Collector's Edition" booklet notes. Following that are interviews with band members at the time, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Glenn Cornick and Clive Bunker; as well as thoughts from Robin Black (studio engineer of Benefit and many other Jethro Tull albums), Terry Ellis ('executive producer' of Benefit), Joshua White who directed the 1970 Tanglewood Festival which features on DVD2, and Steven Wilson explaining the mixing of Benefit in 2013. The masses of anecdotes are surrounded by legions of images of the band and memorabilia from the era.
