Songs From The Wood is often referred to as Bobby Vee And The Shadows - Suzie Baby / Flyin High of the most commercially appealing Jethro Tull albums, containing elements of rock, prog and folk-rock. The first disc of the set contains the Steven Wilson remix of the original studio album, accompanied by associated recordings. These tracks have been reconstructed as a complete set and then remixed to stereo by Jakko Jakszyk and are completely unheard.
DVD 1 contains 5. This footage has never been publicly seen before. The concert venue was the home for Washington Wizards basketball team, then known as Washington Bullets — so the video footage comes directly from the film that was played to the big screens in the venue during the show and has since been seen nowhere else. Completing the set is a beautiful 96 page book which contains extensive writing on the history of the album and how it came to be. Martin Webb reflects on the writing, recording and touring of the album whilst Ian Anderson gives a track by track annotation of the album and associated recordings.
