A Must have Marillion collection set
Great set of Marillion Albums, with concerts that date a while back, and a must have for all of us die hard Marillion Fans!
As expected: superb.
Without bringing up the generic Fish/H argument for the umpteenth time, this is actually alot better, in my opinion, than the Bootleg Vol. 1. My reasoning for this? The majority of the material on Vol.1 were remixes of original tracks which were also included which in most cases the die-hard Marillion collector already has. On Vol.2 however, a much broader scope is found with more variety in available material albeit consistently live. H & co present material from both pre-1989 to the present in the usual spectacular style. Just generally brilliant. But, what else was expected?
An absolute joy to listen to
Everybody wrote them off after Fish left. Steve Hogarth brought new life to Marillion. Listen to this fantastic live collection and enjoy.Steve's voice soars majestically over a group of extremely gifted musicians. The band probably thought they had a mountain to climb after their larger than life frontman decided to leave. I was lucky enough to see them live at Hammersmith Odeon on the Holidays In Eden tour. Discs 3 and 4 of this set bring it all back.The set list is identical to the superb gig it's a real shame that it was not recorded. Special mention has to be given to the Leicester concert from 1990 , Easter,Warm Wet Circles and Season's End are simply breath taking. The quality of this boxed set is amazing. Well worth the money if you're a fan, worth spending the money on if you appreciate quality music played by a real band instead of computer generated dross.The extreme warmth from the audience on each of these live recordings is evident throughout. Put on a decent sound system and wind the volume up.Well worth the moneyRead full review
