Benefit is the third album by the British rock band Jethro Tull, released in April 1970. It was the first Tull album to include pianist and organist John Evan – though he was not yet a permanent member of the group – and the last to include bass guitarist Glenn Cornick. It was recorded at the same studio of the previous album, but the band experimented with more advanced recording techniques.
It also became one of the best-known albums of their career, which is going strong more 60 million records and 40 years later.

The difficult third album for Tull is expanded here into a double-CD package, plus an audio DVD, all bulging with new mixes but pretty light on the tantalising previously unreleased material. In hindsight, you can see 1970’s Benefit as something of a breathing space for for the band. Its illustrious predecessor Stand Up was a Number One album, while the monster-selling and concept-defining releases Aqualung and Thick As A Brick were waiting in the wings too. And in truth, Benefit has worn not as well as that which went before in Tull world
Jethro Tull‘s second album, 1969’s Stand Up will be reissued in November as a three-disc set, featuring new Steven Wilson mixes and a wealth of bonus material.

Aqualung is the fourth studio album by the rock band Jethro Tull, released in 1971. It is regarded, despite the band's disagreement, as a concept album featuring a central theme of "the distinction between religion and God". The album's "dour musings on faith and religion" have marked it as "one of the most cerebral albums ever to reach millions of rock listeners". Aqualung's success signalled a turning point in the band's career, which went on to become a major radio and touring act.
