THE FIRST EVER RELEASE TO COMBINE THE 1972 CONCEPT ALBUM THICK AS A BRICK AND FOLLOW-UP THICK AS A BRICK 2: WHATEVER HAPPEN TO GERALD BOSTOCK – LIVE!
New York, NY (June 9, 2014)– On August 26, 2014, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Thick As A Brick – Live In Iceland by Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson on 2CD, DVD, SD Blu-ray and digital formats [Pre-book Order Date, August 1, MSRP $14.98 DVD, $19.98 SD Blu-ray, $17.98 2CD]. This is the first time Thick As A Brick and Thick As A Brick 2: Whatever Happened To Gerald Bostock? have been offered in a combined set, resulting in a superb presentation of the complete story of Gerald Bostock.
Jethro Tull’s famed concept album Thick As A Brick was originally released in 1972 and featured one continuous track spread across two sides of an LP telling the story of a young boy named Gerald Bostock. 40 years later in 2012, Jethro Tull’s founder and leader Ian Anderson continued the story, with the creation of Thick As A Brick 2: Whatever Happened To Gerald Bostock?. Following this release, Anderson took both albums on the road to present the complete narrative live. This show, filmed in Iceland, brings Gerald’s tale to life as never before and creates the definitive presentation of Thick As A Brick.
Ian Anderson recently released the very successful solo album Homo Erraticus, and is currently on tour across Europe from June to September (full details at www.jethrotull.com).
Underlining not only Ian Anderson’s importance as a songsmith, Thick As A Brick – Live In Iceland also showcases this consummate live performer.
