2020 Stereo Remix Of 1983 Debut Studio Album On Vinyl LP!

Script For A Jester's Tear was Marillion's debut studio album originally released in March 1983, reaching number seven in the UK Albums Chart (eventually achieving a platinum status) and produced the two Top 40 singles "He Knows You Know" (#35) and "Garden Party" (#16). Formed in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in 1979, the band went through several personnel changes before recording their debut album. Having attracted attention with a three-track session for the Friday Rock Show they were signed by EMI Records releasing their first single, "Market Square Heroes", in October 1982 with their debut album Script For A Jester's Tear following a few months later after their second single, "He Knows You Know".

At the time, Marillion's remarkable, full-fledged 1983 debut Script for a Jester's Tear was considered an odd bird: replete with Peter Gabriel face paint and lengthy, technical compositions, Marillion ushered in a new generation of prog rock that bound them forever to the heroics of early day Genesis. Intricate, complex, and theatrical almost to a fault, Script for a Jester's Tear remains the band's best and sets the bar for their later work.
