Marillion - Live In London - 1984

Guess which one went on to a solo career and acting? Hmmm....

OK so Fish was a bit of an extrovert, that said Marillion have done very well since he left, way back when.

This is interesting, the band on tour prior to 'Misplaced Childhood' being released, and the very successful hit single 'Kayleigh'.

They played some of the 'forthcoming material', which for Marillion fans, is fascinating to hear.

The comments from Fish, introducing the 'new material', also demonstrates that the final album structure was not quite as planned.

Also the lyrics on 'Kayleigh' are different from the final album/single version.

This was recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon on December 14th 1984.

The original source was stereo soundboard, and considering that the likely path was vinyl, then CD, and finally digital, the sound quality remains excellent.

Setlist is:

01. Garden Party
02. Cinderella Search
03. Jigsaw
04. Chelsea Monday
05. Pseudo Silk Kimono / Kayleigh
06. Bitter Suite
07. Heart of Lothian
08. Incubus
