Bursting Out (1978) is Jethro Tull's first exclusively live album. It was recorded at various locations during the European Heavy Horses tour of May and June 1978, but it is not certain where each track was recorded. It is also known as Bursting Out: Jethro Tull Live, Bursting Out — Live, and Live — Bursting Out.
A spelling error on the side of the original LP lists the title as "Busting Out".
The original CD issue of the album deleted three tracks ("Quatrain", "Sweet Dream" and "Conundrum") so it could fit on one CD. In 2004, the full album was re-released as a digitally remastered 2-CD set.
The reprise of Aqualung at the end of the fourth side involves a repetition of the chorus "Aqualung my friend / Don't you start away uneasy / You poor old sod, you see it's only..." followed by Anderson speaking the words "Could be anyone...", thus concluding the album.
