Jethro Tull / Benefit 50th anniversary reissue 4CD 2 DVD Deluxe Box Set

Jethro Tull Benefit 50th anniversary reissue 4CD 2 DVD Box Set

Release Date November 5th

Price point £30 – £40

If you are a Jethro Tull fan and have been collecting the Hardback Book Deluxe editions then the fact that Benefit was not released in this format has always been a disappointment. Fans had always said even if it was released in the same format and with the same content, they would still buy it. However, not only is it being released in the same format as the other releases it is also being expanded making it even more desirable and essential for long term Jethro Tull fans and new fans alike.

These Jethro Tull box sets and very reasonably priced and are an example of how other bands and labels should approach their reissue program. They do sell out quickly and many of them can command very high prices now

The original 2CD /DVD reissue from 2013 is included with a whole lot more.
