Thick As A Brick sequel
to be released April 2nd

TAAB2 - Whatever HappenedTo Gerald Bostock? - is a full length Progressive Rock "concept" album worthy of its predecessor. Boy to man and beyond, it looks at what might have befallen the child poet Gerald Bostock in later life. Or, perhaps, any of us. To be released in two formats: the simple jewel case CD with 8-page booklet and the Special Edition with CD, audio-visual DVD and 16-page booklet. The DVD contains 5.1 surround mixes, 24-bit stereo mix, videos covering the making of the album, interviews with the musicians and the lyric reading where ian Anderson reads the lyrics in various settings. Also on the DVD are the pages of StCleve.com, the online update of the St Cleve Chronicle, fabled newspaper of the original album, and the multilingual lyric translations in Italian, German, Spanish, Czech, Polish and Russian.SOURCE (http://www.j-tull.com/)

WOW! That truly is amazing that we're getting a sequel to one of the greatest albums of all time!

A sequel from Ian Anderson, not Jethro Tull? No Martin, no thank you.

Wow indeed. How can you live up to that masterpiece? Ian is under a lot of pressure.

Where are you all getting the idea that this is going to be an Ian solo album?

I've heard it's a solo album to. Plus, on the page it says Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson on the graphic.

I'm very interested but I hope this is a Jethro album and not just a solo album.

I've heard his solo albums and I think they're just as good as Tull's music.

I'm sure it will be good, it just doesn't feel right not to have Martin Barre on the sequel.
