JETHRO TULL, the pioneering British prog rock group, today announce the launch of the band’s first ever official illustrated history, expected to be published Autumn 2019.
‘The Ballad of Jethro Tull’ will be a beautifully packaged, fully illustrated hard back book, printed in two editions: a ‘Classic’ version; and a limited run ‘Signature Edition’, signed by Ian Anderson and featuring additional content.
The project is being overseen by Jethro Tull founder and front-man Ian Anderson who, together with members and former members of the band, will contribute memories, personal photos, memorabilia, classic and previously unseen live photography, behind-the-scenes snaps, original press cuttings and album art.
Ian Anderson said ‘It’s been on my mind to find an effective way of telling the Jethro Tull story and as we celebrate – in slight disbelief – our 50th Anniversary, now seems as good-a-time as any to draw on the recollections of the very many musicians who played a part in Jethro Tull. Some guys are sadly no longer with us and others will be hard to reach but this project will seek to provide the definitive Jethro Tull story – as told by Jethro Tull.’
By registering at jethrotullbook.com potential buyers will be the first to get the news on the book’s progress, become eligible for an early bird discount on both editions, and get the chance to have a name printed in the book.
