DOUBLE VINYL EDITION OF THE 2014 UK TOP 20 ALBUM FROM THE JETHRO TULL FRONTMAN

In 2012 Ian Anderson released 'Thick As A Brick 2', the follow-up to Jethro Tull's legendary concept album. The album was a critical and commercial success, charting around the world. In April 2014 he returned with the UK top 20 album 'Homo Erraticus'.

The original 'Thick As A Brick' album, released in 1972, was based around the poem of disgraced child prodigy Gerald Bostock. For 'Homo Erraticus' Anderson is reunited with Bostock, using lyrics written by Gerald based on an old historical manuscript. The manuscript examines key events from throughout British history before going on to offer several prophecies for the future.

Suitably dramatised and exaggerated by Bostock as metaphors for modern life, he presented Anderson with ideas for 14 songs, which was then set to music. The result was 'Homo Erraticus'.

Following the release of this "Jethro Tull album" in all but name, Ian and his band embarked on an extensive world tour where they played the album in its entirety followed by a selection of Tull classics, covering Europe, North and South America, and Australia. In 2017, Anderson self-released 'The String Quartets' for which he performed new John O'Hara arrangements of classic Tull songs with the Carducci String Quartet. 2020 sees Ian Anderson perform 'Jethro Tull the Prog Years' on a year-long headline tour throughout Europe.

This double vinyl edition of 'Homo Erraticus' is presented in a wide spine sleeve.
