When we think Steven Wilson, we think superior audio…audio so pure and clean that we are sometimes left with amazement at what we’re hearing. I recognize there are those that prefer only what was original vinyl (I do know people that prefer the original mix), but I have to say, I love listening to these remixes reveal new things to me. The good news here is two-fold:

On July 21, Parlophone and Rhino Records will release a massive remix of the classic Marillion album from 1985, Misplaced Childhood. To complement the remixed original, the new edition will provide 4CDs and add in a BD top off the box.

CD 1 will be the original Ten-track album. CDs 2 and 3 will include the full 1985 support show, Live at Utrecht with eighteen performance tracks. The remaining CD will include eighteen bonus tracks with demos, outtakes, and alternate mixes.

The Blu-ray will provide the expected hi-resolution 96/24 stereo remaster and 5.1 remixes. Also on the BD will be the 72-minute documentary, Childhood Memories, and four promo videos. The box is capped off by the inclusion of a 60-page book.

There will also be a 4LP (180g-weight vinyl)Box of Misplaced Childhood available on the same date.
