    I have 25 from the Broadsword era. If there are at least 5 more unreleased that was an amazingly productive time, I sure hope SW does Broadword. It’d also be nice to have the full Hamburg 1982 concert.

    I think I counted 30 with DJ and Dinosaur included. Donít forget songs such as Motoreyes and Jackalynn home version. Half the songs have decent production and the other half range from average to crap production lol. The drums on the well known version of Jackalynn sound terrible. I canít listen to it. Wilson has to do this remix. Some songs will sound 100 times better if he fixes them

    Yeah, Broadsword will/would be a worthy addition to the series, but I would assume it wouldn't be out until 2022. At which point Ian Anderson will be 75!

    One track from that period I always liked is Crew Nights. I'm probably in the minority there.

    On a one a year rate it would be 2022 most likely. I'm really locking forward to that one.

    Crew Nights is a great song, the best of the Broadsword leftovers.

    That full MFSL version actually has all the tracks that appeared on both the UK and US versions but does not replicate the original release. All other CD releases have tracks missing in order to fit on one disc.
    There is a japanese mini-LP double CD that perfectly matches the UK version, including the book-style packaging. I'm quite proud to own that one!

    Not a bad track. Wilson will make it sound fairly good. I think The curse will sound pretty good remixed too. Sounds like Devo. Iím your gun and Down at the end of your road will sound great. Get to it Wilson lol. Jackalynn and Beastie will become very listenable instead of horrible. This can be the best box set because the production can be improved so much. Thereís only 3 songs that donít really have much potential imo. Lights out, No step and Rythm in gold. All the others should sound fairly good remixed

    A mildly sidetrack question...

    So wots...uhh the deal with the Too Old To Rock N Roll...40th set? Is it really a live album (on disc 1) or just basically a whole bunch of alternate versions of all the tracks on the album? Or something else?
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    They rerecorded the entire album in a studio in a short time (two days?) as the soundtrack for a tv special.

    Listened for the first time to the Aqualung 40th anniversary edition. My surprise track was 'Up The Pool' an ode to Anderson's hometown Blackpool. Good song , that does not really fit on Aqualung. Was this song ever played live ?

    Up The 'Pool was played live, but not until the 90s if I recall correctly. I don't believe it was played back in the day. It was, you probably know, originally on the Life's A Long Song EP before becoming more well known on Living In The Past.

    Another slightly o/t thing here but what about the guitar/mando rhythm tracks to "Mayhem Maybe"....good lord. This might be Ian's masterpiece for really demonstrating both how great he is at writing pseudo-celtic music, plus the ability to actually play it. What I would give to see a close-up video of the studio recording of this piece....
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Agreed, great track! Let's see Blackmore's Night do that! (Kidding... but it IS pretty busy, even from a vocal perspective.)

    Mando was played by David actually, Ian and Martin did the guitars.

    Cool list, although I have most of those I still would like to have them in one place.

    I don't know DJ and Dinosaur, where they released somewhere?

    I think there where also a few substantial remixes on one of the box sets (at least a Version of Broadsword with lots of guitar removed)

    Dj and Dinosaur havenít been released yet but theyíre supposed to be out there. Thereís probably others too. I think a dozen of those songs need the reverb taken from the drums. 3 or 4 others need extra work on the drums. Wilson will be busy with this one

    Yes, most of those where done before Peter-John and Gerry joined. Those tracks sound to "artifical" mainly because of the drums (drum machines).
    Lots of very good songs otherwise though.

    I somehow remember a song called "One about a Train" (or close) also to be unreleased from that sessions too.

    Interesting. Is general opinion that the original album or this redone version is 'better'?

    Also, a more general question: on the Too Old box...are the versions of One Brown Mouse (early Version) and Strip Cartoon the same as the ones on the Songs From The Wood 40th set?
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    I think the general opinion at the time of release was that the re-recorded version was better. It has a bit more life to it I think. But now that the dust has settled, I don't know if that's still the consensus.

    One Brown Mouse (early version) is a different mix on the Songs From The Wood box. Pretty sure Strip Cartoon is exactly the same track.

    honestly, Too Old...is my least favorite from the classic Tull years, but idk if a re-recorded version is the solution for me. (Not that it matters, the box is well OOP by now)

    And thanks. It gets confusing keeping track of all these bonus tracks. :P

    I pretty much only listen to the re-recorded version now - to my ears it has way more sparkle and depth....if you A/B these a stark contrast is heard.
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Actually, that one is one of the few that are still available. Lasers Edge and Wayside both have it in stock, and Amazon Canada still has two copies in stock. Maybe some of the other international Amazon sites do too.
