As a big fan of this album in particular, I couldn’t wait to share this news with you readers. Check it out.
The Press Release:
Following the demise of our old record company EMI, our first 8 albums were taken up by Warner Music. With our assistance, they have decided it’s time to bring those albums up to date.
The first album to get the makeover will be “Misplaced Childhood”. The package will include a 5.1 mix by Steven Wilson and a new stereo master taken from the original analog 1/2” tape. This will be used to make a new vinyl and CD version which we believe to be superior to the 1998 re-master.
There will also be a documentary video on the Blu-ray version about the making of the album featuring Marillion, producer Chris Kimsey and Fish, where we reveal some previously untold stories about the writing and recording of “Misplaced Childhood”. We hope you will enjoy revisiting this album when it’s released in July. It is available to pre-order now:

PiercingMetal Thoughts: “Misplaced Childhood” is not only my very favorite Marillion album, but its one of my own personal favorite albums of all time. I just love every single melody and lyric on the thing and when I attempt to sit and listen to a single track I end up starting from the beginning and letting the whole thing play through. I’m hoping to get my hands on a copy soon after its release so I can indulge in the greatness as a new item in my collection (speaking of all the bonus new content of course) and will surely offer up some kind of review for you here on the website. Marillion visits to the USA are not as often as I’d like them to be and while Fish has been out of the group for decades, his songwriting on these classic tracks still “speak” to me as a music fan. Fish needs to make a proper visit here as well as its been almost ten years since I remember him being in NYC. Anyway, let’s close this one up with the question of how do you feel about these albums getting a once over? Are you a fan already or are you someone new to the band despite their rich underground history? If you answered “yes” to the latter that is fine by me because you can simply start now and realize what you’ve been missing all this time.
