Dream Theater Live At The Marquee on 180g LP
Dream Theater have steadily achieved a startlingly sublime synthesis of soaring and unmistakable melody, progressive instrumentation and aggressive heaviness unrivaled within hard rock music. The legacy established throughout their virtuosic career of astounding aesthetic alchemy has made their very moniker synonymous with the power of talent, ability and momentum when brilliantly forged together.
Live at the Marquee was recorded at the famous venue on April 23, 1993 and is comprised of material from the band's When Dream and Day Unite and Images and Words albums. "A Fortune in Lies" is treated with more aggression than the original and remains one of their gems from the past. "Another Hand – The Killing Hand" is a combination of an instrumental commonly featured in their live shows and the now-infamous "The Killing Hand." "Bombay Vindaloo" is an improvisation-based composition performed live only six times and never recorded in a studio.
The vinyl edition of Live at the Marquee matches the complete track listing of the original CD release in 1993 and therefore also includes "Surrounded."
