Both collections open with a new version of Afraid of Sunlight that was remixed earlier this year by Michael Hunter. The CD version also includes the original mix by the album’s producer Dave Meegan.

 

Both sets also have a live recording of Marillion performing at the Rotterdam Ahoy arena on September 29, 1995 during the group’s tour supporting Afraid of Sunlight. Six of the songs were originally released on the double live album Made Again (1996),

 

The show’s set list spans the band’s entire career with “Garden Party” from its 1983 debut Script for a Jester’s Tear; “Kayleigh” from Misplaced Childhood (1985); “Incommunicado” from Clutching at Straws(1987); “No One Can” from Holidays In Eden (1991); and “The Great Escape” from Brave (1994). The concert also features performances of several tracks from Afraid of Sunlight, including “Cannibal Surf Babe,” “Gazpacho” and the single “Beautiful.”

 

The Blu-ray features the album’s original 1995 mix along with several new mixes (48/24 LPCM Stereo Remix; 48/24 DTS 5.1 Mix; 48/24 LPCM 5.1 Mix). Video content includes interviews with the band discussing the album, a new documentary about Afraid of Sunlight, and a promo film for “Beautiful.”

 

The Blu-ray disc also collects the nine bonus recordings from the remastered edition of the album that was released in 1999, plus 17 previously unreleased songs that include studio jams and early versions of Afraid of Sunlight tracks like “Beyond You,” “King,” “Out Of This World” and “Beautiful.”
