Aqualung (hmv Exclusive) the 1921 Centenary Edition Transparent Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday July 24 and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
Arguably one of the pinnacles in the genre that would soon balloon into full-blown ‘prog rock’, Jethro Tull’s fourth album was famously recorded in one of two studios at the newly-opened Morgan Sound Studios in London, the other being occupied by Led Zeppelin as they crafted the songs for Led Zeppelin IV. Often described as a concept album - much to the irritation of the band of the band themselves, who subsequently recorded the deliberately overblown Thick as a Brick in response – Aqualung retains a timeless quality and remains one of the finest rock albums of its era.
The album joins our centenary line-up on July 24 with an extremely limited run of 500 copies pressed on transparent vinyl.
