I believe it was the last USA show with Fish. I din't know them until a few days before the concert when I bought the CD. I have been hooked ever since. I think the 2 CD remaster is bad. Bass to me is too bloated. As I have stated elsewhere I really like the remix. PTgraphics , Jun 25, You must log in or sign up to reply here. Show Ignored Content. Share This Page. Overall, it's an excellent performance.
It's very nice. I have framed this and put it on the wall. The sonic quality and production of this album are excellent. Highly recommended. I also recommend you to purchase "Curtain Call" live set that contains three live performance, 6 CD, of Fish era. All the best freaks are here.!!! Keep on proggin'..!! Progressively yours, GW. Whereas the first disc is a true compilation of live tracks, the second disc is an integral performance of the Misplaced Childhood album.
The fact that all the songs from disc one are taken from various shows is most noticeable by the fact that most songs have fade in and outs. This makes the whole disc feel as a disorderly collected compilation, created by a low profile label instead of a bit of a professional compilation that would live up to the standards by EMI. I cannot imagine that it would be too difficult to have all tracks cross fading, I mean most songs end with crowd's cheering so you could cross fade this.
Also the quality of the production on the first disc is not that high, if you compare it to the "Real to Reel" live disc that was first released in Sometimes the higher tones are barely noticeable. Quite disappointing for a release that from the outside looks like the live release of the Fish-era. I'm more positive however of the second disc. First of all because it is uninterrupted, but also because the quality of the recording is a lot better than disc one.
Fish's vocals also sound a lot better, on the first disc he sometimes sounds as if his throat is about to give in. Too bad this album was not released as a single cd, with only the Misplaced Childhood set included. I would have rated it higher. I prefer the "Real to Reel" album over this one.
Disc one starts out with that famous classical overture, The Thieving Magpie. After that, there are a bunch of tracks that represent the best of Marillion live so to say. My main problem with disk one is, while all of the songs are good, they all fade off between numbers, making it seem less like a coherent live album.
Disc two presents the listener with a full performance of Misplaced Childhood. I have not heard the studio version yet, but can safely say that this is much better than disc one. It also is obviously more coherent and does not fade off. Fish's concept album is well executed live. This is a really good live release. I still love listening to the live version of Misplaced Childhood though. I can recommend this to any Marillion fan, seeing as it was a fitting way for Fish to end his career with the band.
Opening with the classical piece La Gazza Ladra and then going straight into Slainte Mhath, the band plays calm and collected. All the tracks are played almost exactly the same as their studio counterparts, but they are much more emotional and Fish takes them to the next level. From the varied synths of Fugazi to the outro of Incommunicado, one cannot be anything less than captivated by Fish's presence on the recordings.
The second disc, containing Misplaced Childhood in its entirety, is very much similar to the bootleg Selling Fish By the Pound 3. The album sounds almost exactly the same live as it does on the studio, but it again has much more feel and emotion this time around. Overall, if you are a fan of Marillion, I recommend a purchase of this album immediately. Ninetta is brought to trial, found guilty, and condemned to death. Fernando rushes to the court to save his daughter's life, but is too late; he too is sent to prison.
Ernesto, a military friend of Fernando, bursts in looking for the Mayor and holding a royal pardon for Ninetta's father. Pippo shows him the way and is given a silver coin for helping, but the magpie snatches it and flies up to the tower. Pippo and Antonio pursue the thief.
Ninetta is taken to the scaffold and makes her final speech to the crowd. From the tower, Pippo and Antonio cry out that they have found Lucia's silver in the magpie's nest and they ring the bells. The crowd hear their words and hope to save Ninetta, but shots ring out and they conclude that they are too late. However, Ninetta appears walking down the hill — the shots were mere rejoicing. Ninetta celebrates with her companions but is worried about her father. The Thieving Magpie is not a continuous live recording, but a compilation of tracks recorded at different times and places, with audible gaps between them and different moods on the individual tracks.
However, the double vinyl version does include the first side of the UK number one concept album Misplaced Childhood The CD and cassette version includes the full album, as well as the track " Freaks " — originally the b-side to " Lavender ", it was used as the lead single for The Thieving Magpie peaking at no.
The album was produced by Christopher "Privet" Hedge, who had been Marillion's sound engineer from early on in their career. A Questo Seno 7. Che Razza Di Villaggio! Infelice, Sventurata 9.
