2017 Remastered Edition
Marillion helped revitalize progressive rock in 1985 when the band released its third studio album, Misplaced Childhood. The concept record became the British quintet's most commercially successful album, scoring Top Five hits with "Kayleigh" and "Lavender." Singer Derek Dick (aka Fish), guitarist Steve Rothery, keyboardist Mark Kelly, bassist Pete Trewavas and percussionist Ian Mosley recorded Misplaced Childhood at Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany during the spring of 1985. A concept record with two continuous pieces of music, the song cycle explored themes of lost love, lost childhood, and more. Released in June 1985, it was an immediate success, topping the U.K. album chart and earning platinum status. This Parlophone/Warner Bros. vinyl reissue presents the cornerstone album in a newly remastered version which is sure to build on its notable legacy.
