Deluxe 180g 5LP Box Set featuring Original Album Newly Remastered by Steven Wilson, Complete 1994 Paris Performance Newly Remixed by Michael Hunter & Expanded with 9 Unreleased Tracks, and Illustrated Booklet!
In February 1994 Marillion surprised many with the release of their dark and sprawling concept piece, Brave. This ambitious double album charted at No. 10 in the UK, making it the band's seventh consecutive Top Ten album, a streak that began in 1983 with the group's debut, Script for a Jester's Tear. Since Brave was released nearly 25 years ago, Steve Hogarth says appreciation for the album has grown steadily. "...it's a slow burn - some things acquire a mythical status, and I think Brave deserves that."
Now comes the Brave: Deluxe Edition, a 180g 5LP box set which features a version of the original studio album newly remastered by renowned producer Steven Wilson, and - for the first time ever - a complete recording of the band's March 1994 performance in Paris. An accompanying illustrated booklet recounts the story behind the daring sound experiments that led to the album's expansive atmospherics.
The live material highlights Marillion's April 29, 1994 concert at La Cigale in Paris. Newly remixed by Michael Hunter, the music includes a performance of Brave in its entirety, which first appeared in 1996 on the band's double live album, Made Again. Those recordings have been expanded with nine unreleased tracks, including live renditions of fan favorites like "No One Can," "Easter," "Waiting To Happen" and "Hooks In You."
