Back in July, Parlophone and Rhino presented a Super Deluxe Edition of Misplaced Childhood, the 1985 Marillion classic. That release (read here) contained a lot for fans including a Steven Wilson 5.1 Surround mix. But as time passes, and these sets slow down in sales (or sell out), then the labels return to allow for a break out of the original album to be reissued. If that’s what you have waited for, then here it is.
On December 1, the 2017 remaster of Misplaced Childhood will be re-released on CD, DD, and vinyl LP as just the 10-track original album. Put it on your calendar. A pickup of this CD issue could also serve as a playable copy to preserve the boxed one that you’re trying to maintain.
