The Deluxe Edition include 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, which has been expanded with nine unreleased tracks.
The Vinyl version of Brave is accompanied by illustrated booklets that recount the story behind the daring sound experiments that led to the album’s expansive atmospherics.
The live music on the sets 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.”
Since Brave was released nearly 25 years ago, 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.”
