Jethro Tull’s 1969 Album “Stand Up” Getting the Deluxe Reissue Treatment

ParlophoneJethro Tull will reissue its second album, 1969's Stand Up, as a deluxe two-CD/DVD set on November 18. The expanded version of the record, called Stand Up: The Elevated Edition, includes remixed versions of the original album, a variety of bonus studio and live recordings and some archival performance footage.

Stand Up marked longtime Jethro Tull guitarist Martin Barre's debut with the band, and saw the group adding folk-rock influences into its predominately blues-rock sound. The record reached #20 on the Billboard 200 chart, while topping the U.K. albums tally. Stand Up includes the fan favorite "Fat Man," as well as "Bouree," a reworking of the Johann Sebastian Bach piece "Bouree in E Minor."

The deluxe Stand Up's first CD features a new stereo mix of the original album, plus a previously unreleased version of "Bouree"; the original stereo mixes of Tull's 1969 singles "Driving Song" and "Living in the Past"; and four songs that the band recorded for the BBC. The second CD contains a series of performances from a January 1969 concert in Stockholm, Sweden, that Jethro Tull opened for Jimi Hendrix; the original mono mixes of the "Driving Song" and "Living in the Past" singles; and two Stand Up radio spots.

The DVD features stereo and surround-sound DVD-Audio mixes of Stand Up; flat transfers of the album's original stereo master tapes and of the mono and stereo mixes of "Living in the Past" and "Driving Song"; and video of two song from the 1969 Stockholm show.

Stand Up: The Elevated Edition comes packaged with a 112-page booklet offering a history of the album, track-by-track notes from frontman Ian Anderson, and rare photographs. It also boasts a recreation of the original album's pop-up book artwork.
