A 4 LP 2018 deluxe vinyl edition of Marillion‘s debut album Script for a Jester’s Tear (1983).
In addition to remixed versions of Script and the Market Square Heroes EP, the set also includes a previously unreleased concert that captures Marillion performing in London at the Marquee Club on December 29, 1982. Recorded a few months before Script for a Jester’s Tear was released, the show features live versions of all six album tracks, plus non-album tracks including the 19-minute epic Grendel.
Originally produced by Nick Tauber, Script for a Jester’s Tear is the only Marillion album to feature Fish (vocals), Steve Rothery (guitar), Pete Trewavas (bass), Mark Kelly (keyboards) and Mick Pointer (drums).
"We are pleased to announce the launch of the latest release in the Warner Music Deluxe Editions of the 8 EMI Marillion albums.
Script For A Jester's Tear is being released as a 4CD / 1 Blu-Ray set and a four-LP box.
Both collections feature a new stereo mix of the album by Andy Bradfield and Avril Mackintosh.
They also include a stereo remix of the Market Square Heroes EP (and the track "Charting The Single") and a previously unreleased show from the Marquee Club in London on 29th December 1982.
The blu-ray contains 96k/24-bit audio of Script and the Market Square Heroes EP and the Marquee show. It also includes a 5.1 surround mix of Script by Andy Bradfield & Avril Mackintosh.
Finally, it also features "Sackcloth & Greasepaint" - a new in-depth 90 minute documentary covering the formation of the band through to the release of Script in 1983, and including interviews with Fish, Mark Kelly, Diz Minnit, Mick Pointer, Steve Rothery, Pete Trewavas and Mark Wilkinson."
