He says the point of the album was to illustrate how his style of music may go out of popularity with every other fashion and fad, but he is determined that if he sticks to it, everything comes back around and the style will rise again.

Now they're too old to Rock'n'Roll and they're too young to die. So the old Rocker gets out his bike to make a ton before he takes his leave. Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner just like it used to be. And as he flies -- tears in his eyes -- his wind-whipped words echo the final take and he hits the trunk road doing around 120 with no room left to brake. And he was too old to Rock'n'Roll but he was too young to die. No, you're never too old to Rock'n'Roll if you're too young to die.

Notes

Record Store Day 2016 Exclusive limited to 3000 copies

Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll, Too Young To Die! - The TV Special Edition features a previously unreleased re-recorded version of the album for a 1976 UK TV special, re- recording done 26 and 27 march 1976 in Morgan Studios London

Why they had to re-record:
London Weekend TV planned a series of summer pop-rock specials, The shows were planned to feature the likes of The Electric Light Orchestra, The Hollies, Charles Aznavour and Lynsey De Paul, with the series to kicked off with Jethro Tull.

Explained by Ian Anderson: " To have done the TV show as a live perfance would have been horrenously difficult in terms of concentrating on performing to cameras and everything else, so playing live was out of question. That meant miming - but because of Musicians' Union rules we couldn't just mime to the original album tracks, we had to re-record them."

* An extensive 24 page booklet including an essay by Martin Webb on the preparation and recording of the album in Brussels and Monte Carlo, the aborted stage musical, the London Weekend TV special and the 1976 tours. The booklet also contains a track by track annotation by Ian Anderson, lyrics, a feature on Ian Anderson and his motorbikes, Dave Gibbons on drawing the LP's cartoon inner spread and 'From Carmen to Tullman' - The Musical Life of John Glascock, unseen photos and lots more.
