This 4CD/2DVD box set greatly improves upon previous reissues of Benefit, offering the original album and associated recordings remixed in stereo by Steven Wilson, a disc of original mixes of non-album material, two concerts (one in Boston, remixed by Wilson, and a mono set in Chicago), plus hi-res stereo and surround mixes of the album and the Boston concert (alongside footage of the performance). Like previous Jethro Tull deluxe editions, it's packaged in a casebound book offering 100 pages of liner notes, rare photos and more.

Check out Anderson's recollections and appraisal above.
