Fascinating journey through unreleased material from the making of the 1972 ‘Marks’ album, plus a 1972 ‘live’ recording – All tracks 24-Bit Remastered!

Although their international success was only short-lived, ALQUIN was an eclectic band filled with inspiration.
Over the course of six years, they made four critically acclaimed studio albums.
The ‘Marks Sessions’ is a release of unheard ALQUIN material from the recording of their 1972 ‘Marks’ album.
As several tapes from the original sessions were unearthed earlier in 2012, ‘Marks Sessions’ contains a fascinating one-hour journey through the making of the album, featuring demo-versions of ‘I Wish I Could’, ‘Oriental Journey’ and ‘Marc's Occasional Showers’, among many others.
The Double Disc Set also features a recording of the concert ALQUIN performed at the Circustheater in Scheveningen on July 2nd, 1972. This gig represents the band in their first line-up, just before the recording of the ‘Marks’ album, and already pointing musically to what was to come on its follow-up: the ‘Mountain Queen’ album.
The recordings have been exclusively 24-Bit Remastered from the Original Master-Tapes, and in addition contain an Informative Booklet with the complete ALQUIN story and Rare Memorabilia.
