More information: Jethro Tull played their first show at the Marquee Club London on 2nd February 1968. It was the first step of an epic musical journey as Jethro Tull rose to become one of the world’s most successful and influential progressive rock bands. Today, the group - led by founder Ian Anderson - is still on the road, electrifying audiences with a world tour commemorating its 50th anniversary.

To help celebrate this historic achievement, Jethro Tull releases a career-spanning three-disc set that features 50 songs – chosen by Anderson – from all 21 of the band’s studio albums.

‘50 For 50’ provides a sweeping overview of Jethro Tull’s rich and diverse catalogue, which includes numerous platinum and gold records. Arranged chronologically, the three-disc set highlights the band’s continuous musical evolution with blues-influenced early tracks (“Beggar’s Farm” and “A New Day Yesterday”); heavy rockers (“Aqualung” and “Locomotive Breath”); prog classics (“Skating Away” and “Critique Oblique”); and folk tunes (“Songs From The Wood” and “Heavy Horses.”)

The compilation also features “Steel Monkey,” “Farm On The Freeway,” and “Budapest” – three songs from the band’s Grammy-winning 1987 album Crest Of A Knave. The collection ends with “A Christmas Song” and “Ring Out Solstice Bells” – a pair of tracks that originally appeared on The Jethro Tull Christmas Album (2003).
