Marillion: The Early Stages 1982-1987 The Official Bootlegs

 It’s official! The box set of some of Marillion’s early concerts will now be available on November 17th. All orders made directly from former lead singer Fish’s website will also receive an autographed copy of the cover (Mark Wilkinson is the artist,who also did the banner on my website-which is from Fish’s album 13th Star) by Mark, himself and the members of Marillion. 

For those not familiar with their work, this is a great way to sample some of the best music of the 80’s.

They’ve been compared to early Genesis, King Crimson and every other progressive rock band you can think of; but they were (and still are)their own creature. I heard about them from a roommate, and I was an instant fan. While I don’t care for some of the more recent work, preferring Fish’s solo stuff much more, what’s packed into the 6 CD’s represents the best of the best.
