Marillion’s Misplaced Childhood deluxe edition gets limited repress

Marillion / Misplaced Childhood 5-disc deluxe edition

Final chance to acquire this superb set a ‘normal’ price

The superb, previously out-of-print, 4CD+blu-ray deluxe edition of Marillion‘s Misplaced Childhood is now available again in limited quantities!

This set features a 2017 remaster of the original album, a lossless 5.1 remix of the album created by producer, musician and surround maestro Steven Wilson, a concert from Holland across two CDs (including Misplaced Childhood performed in its entirety) and a disc of demos and rarities “remastered exclusively for this set”.

On top of all this great content, the blu-ray delivers an hour-long documentary about the album and promo videos for the singles Lavender, Kayleigh, Lady Nina (which was the A-side to US EP Brief Encounter) and Heart Of Lothian.

The entire five-disc deluxe edition is presented in a case-bound ‘bookset’ that includes a 60-page booklet with sleeve notes written by Dave Everley.

There are only 2000 0f these available for the whole of Europe, so don’t miss out this time around and place an order with the SDE shop using this link or the button below. Read the SDE interview with Steven Wilson about his 5.1 mix of Misplaced Childhood.

First time order from SDE. Very impressed by the service and quick turnaround. Delivered to my place in 4 days from England to Canada!

Hopefully will renew this experience when the Fugazi box comes out!




If I wouldn’t visit your page at least once a day I probably would have completely missed out on this opportunity to get one. The day you posted this, it was already sold out in your shop so I preordered one from Marillion’s store. The box arrived save and sound today and now I finally have all of them and my collection is complete unless they release some more albums in that format. After seeing Marillion live during the Misplaced Childhood Tour (1986) and a second time at their Clutching at Straws Tour (1987) I’ve completely lost interest in them after Fish left the band and I’ve never gave them another listen until now. Love their stuff and Afraid of the Sun is a beautiful album. Thank You for your fantastic reviews, they really get me discovering again. I understand we live in different times today, but you almost transport me back in time so I can almost feel like that little adventurous kid inside a record store that I once was. Cheers!


Received my set yesterday.Many thanks Paul! I played the first disc last night and it brought back to me why I was ambivalent about this record all those many years ago…Some excellent material and (for my taste) some tedious sacarin pop songs. Kayleigh is the very bottom of the pile..

It is however a lovely set and very well considered in compilation..

Thanks for the tip,Paul.


JPC.de lists it today, claims the it will be available within one week. It‘s 29,99€, so probably you can give a chance.


No chance. Ordered there – 5 days later: “not available, canelled by vendor”.


JPC lists it again, a few days after cancelling the last order (this time at 33 €).


Received this morning. Great packaging.Thank you. Unlike some I have never had issue with Amazon’s packaging, just the sheer amount of it. Really glad to have this finally as I saw them premiere the album at The Hammersmith Odeon back in 1985. Several dealers were selling this on Discogs this morning for around £80!

Tomasz Janosz

Hello Paul,
I see some people have already got a Marillion box set. Unfortunately to this day I I haven’t received a confirmation of this album being sent to my e-mail address (order #SSD24708). I ordered a box set on 2nd of October. I decided to choose the safest method of shipment (tracked and signed). Please tell me, if there is a chance to ship the parcel next week? It’s very important to me because it’s a gift for my wife of the wedding anniversary (14 th of October).

I will be grateful for your response.
Have a nice weekend,

Wim Hendriks

Thanks for the update Paul!
Cheers Wim

Chris B

I am a long time subscriber to your site. Received my MC box from you this morning. Others have mentioned how well you package the items and I now have confirmation for myself.
First time I have ordered from you but will not be the last.


I can only echo what Chris B says.
Thanks for the opportunity to purchase from you Paul. I’m already listening to the 5.1 mix for the third time. The Kraftwerk Coloured vinyl that i received around the same time haven’t had a look in yet!.

On that note, please can you have a word with Amazon on how to Package orders as they could do with some pointers?.
Great site,

Steven Horsler

Thanks Paul. Enjoying it right now


I thought that I was hallucinating when I saw the green button earlier! Very well done Paul!

Jump in those who had given up hope…

Should you come by the other special editions please let us know…

Best wishes….John…

Ian Bullock

As a newbie to the shop and having placed my first order on the Misplaced Childhood set, do you send out an email when items are dispatched, Paul? I am nervous of the vagaries of international shipping in these Covid affected times, so I’d like to at least know my box is on its way.

Ian Bullock

Brilliant, thank you!

Faye Thornley

Wow how did you manage to get more of these?..thank you and looking forward to this .great work paul

Faye Thornley

O paul my boyfriend has just told me he’s got it me for xmas.how do I cancel?…so sorry


Hey,I managed to grab one to these on Saturday just wondered when it will be dispatched, thanks again for saving me from the scalpers


Thank you for obtaining these,Paul. Might well have passed me by otherwise . Fortunate to obtain one last evening.

I was rather unsure of Marillion first time around..As a dyed in the wool old progger I found them a little lightweight..although I bought all the albums.Sorry to have missed the special edition of ‘Straws’ as it contains a concert at the Edinburgh Playhouse that I attended..

Jeremy Barnes

These are still available on the Flood Gallery website. I’ve just ordered one.

Spiral Scar

Many thanks Paul, for this alert. I was reluctant to spend insane prices for this elsewhere, after staying on the fence too long when this first came out. The last thing I thought I’d hear about was news of a tiny re-press. I rarely get on the computer before work (the coffee kicks in too slowly) but I did yesterday, and, well… I woke right the **** up! So little time to spare after grabbing a copy that I’m getting around to say thanks today. And I see it’s gone again. Shopping ain’t what it used to be but it would be a heartbreaking nightmare without a site that “gets me” like SDE does. Congrats to anyone else who managed to procure this set during that brief window of opportunity.

Glenn Schryver

Nabbed one! Many thanks for your awesome work Paul!


Thanks Paul – order placed! Was just stunned that shipping to U.S. is almost as much as the discs themselves – WOW!


Oh I know – not blaming you at ALL! Was just venting/surprised. Guess I better get used to it as I plan my entertainment budget for next year. Keep up the great work – my wallet is lighter but me ears & head are MUCH happier! :-)


Thanks Paul. I love your site and think you do a wonderful job for us music lovers . Ordered a copy of MC and suggested a friend do so as well which he did. Thank you.


Nothing to apologize for regarding shipping to the US Paul. I figure for the price I pay to get something from you not offered here, it makes up for all the time I would have to spend each day checking numerous music online magazine website to find what SDEs are in the pipeline. And I’d still miss 90% of the offerings out there if it wasn’t for your site. Gladly buy from you periodically to keep your site up and running. Who else would post sometimes three and four SDE offerings a day without a cast of writers. Keep up the excellent work, and well informed track listings (plus links)!

neil haggar

Nice post Paul.
My favorite (& only) Marillion album. I’ve worn out 2 vinyls, so this is most welcome. Especially with all the extra`s.


Not that much of a “normal” price after adding overseas shipping for almost as much as the boxset itself, but worth it nonetheless.


I was too late. :-(
It’s really a nuisance with these limited editions. But I am sure that the box will be available very soon for 100 Euros on ebay or discogs.com. Irony off.

David Regan

Townsend Records website its available on


Ordered – -thanks Paul


Thanks Paul – ordered. Switched to here to give a bit of support


Ditto. Your email gave me the heads up so you get the business now its back in stock again. Thanks!

Billy Jinchereau

Now available directly from Marillion at marillion.com!


Missed out in the morning. Ordered in the evening. Thank you.

Chris Lancaster

Thanks, Paul; ordered. Very pleased, as my original copy fell foul of the “tripping over one of our cats while carrying a pint mug of tea” incident last year. That was very bad news for several of my Marillion box sets, as well as a few on the shelf below, which now have a brown hue they didn’t have when they left the factory.


Great that so many are being fulfilled by this repress. But also odd that so many obviously huge fans didn’t bother buying this first time round. I recall reading the news piece on here and then casually pre-ordering a few days later. (Ditto 5 Years…)

just jake

Hi Brixet – agree it is odd and in hindsight it does seem strange that so many of us faffed in getting this set when it is clear from some of the comments that we have grabbed the other deluxe sets on the week of release. It is clear that i was not alone in kicking myself once the original pressing sold out and the scalpers started ramping up the prices.

But i am very glad that i have got this second chance.
Ditto for the Tears for Fears boxsets as well


Thanks Paul, ordered!!

John Orr

Yep, ordered as well. Always a pleasure Paul.


Thanks have ordered here rather than Townsend appreciate the website and Pauls efforts


THANKS PAUL! Nabbed one. From the other side of the pond, I’m doing the “Carlton” dance! Oops, too old – just threw my back out again. More time to sit around and listen to SDE’s. Can’t wait for the postage to come back down (at least partway), so I can support your independent shop more often. Cheers, Paul!

si Rogers

Yiphee just got one after looking for one for years does very bad dad dancing around keyboard


Hi,I bought the original one of these,how different in terms of packaging will these be?& how can you tell which one is the first press?

Phil Robinson

Hi Paul, if you look at the picture above and compare it to the original pressing as featured on your very fine web site by doing a quick search for marillion they do appear to be different on the spine area.


Order placed with you, Paul! *does happy dance*

Had my order placed elsewhere but owe a lot to SDE and wanna support your enterprise. Stay safe amongst all that’s going on in the UK, please. We need you about


Just in case Paul can’t get anymore, as of 10am Friday Townsend records have some


Hi Paul any more in stock?

Steve Ballinger

Seems I saw this too late, regrading Misplaced Childhood. If anymore become available I will definitely order.

Daniel emond

Is it already out of stock?


It’s available on townsend music web site

Paul Ward

Thanks for that. Ordered at last!


Thanks Colin, managed to order a copy this morning.

Eric Generic

Just an update for anyone who’s ordered from Townsend Music – they don’t appear to acttually have them in stock, they are trying to obtain copies. Not sure if, or how many, orders will end up being fulfilled. I hope for everyone’s sake they are!


Still available on official Marillion website.


Thanks for the update, Dave… sounds good…

Nick Doggett

Jeepers, that was quick! Can they print 3000 instead, I’m well gutted I’ll never be able to afford the second hand price, I wonder how many of these have been bought to make a killing whilst us Pauper fans go without again!

Mathew Lauren

This was available early this a.m. when I woke here in L.A., but as I check back (now), the allotment is already out of stock :(

I want to congratulate SDE for scoring this 5.1 SDE re-press.

This SDE contains a wonderful 5.1-mix of an album that (I feel) has broad appeal!

I’m very happy for those of you that scored one of these 5.1 SDEs today, but implore “the powers that be” to do a “hearty-run” of this 5.1 SDE set — and not just limit the distribution to Europe!

(Maybe I’d even p/u another one. In fact, I know I would!)

This (STEVEN WILSON) 5.1 mix is one of his best (IMHO), and its (the 5.1) gotten such great reviews, that I’ve no doubt that it will sell-out (again) – and now it looks like it did!

(Anyway, regardless of its current status, such a small-run WILL sell-out quickly)

More allotment and distribution of this 5.1 SDE, as well as some OOP TULL (hint hint, IAN – “TAAB” 5.1 and “Benefit” in a 5.1 SDE bookset) for example, is GOOD thing!

…and of course, c’mon UMe, set “Layla…” (ES 5.1) free in a “lossless” format!

This re-press, however, is a small-step in the right direction!

Let us keep up DEMAND (and requests) for more quality, (NEW) surround-sound albums!

Cheers, ALL!


I have two questions : Is this boxset still available ? Is the SDE-Shop the only shop where I could have bought this set ?

Just Jake

damn, just too late. Missed out last time by faffing about and thinking there would be plenty of time to buy it. Boy was i wrong. Hope you can get some more in Paul. cheers.

The Alien

Some copies apparently still available from Townsend Music.

Quite a bit with postage to Australia, though… does anybody have any experience with Townsend’s shipping/packaging quality and reliability? Want to order but worried re receiving damaged product. Also hoping from more copies from SDE.

Dieter Marchsreiter

Needs another reprint! :)

Chris Bennett

Also opened email as soon as received. Too late. Would like to know if you get any more in please.

Chris Bennett

There evidently were and I ordered one from you this morning. Looking forward to it.


Is anybody else noticing the increasing amount of previously limited edition releases being re-released?
There seems to be little or no point making these items limited if you are going to release them again a few years later.
Sorry to say I am also starting to get fed up purchasing what is described by money grabbing record companies as so called definitive limited edition, collector’s edition, super-duper edition limited, never before available in this format, limited edition.
How many times do record companies think Joe public will fork out their hard earned cash on the ultimate limited edition collector’s box set (now reissued for the last time ever but includes never before heard vocal sung by ‘whichever artist’ whilst sitting on the toilet or singing in the shower)?
Limited should mean limited, not we will reissue again.


It’s an interesting point.

I didn’t think this was ever marketed as a limited edition; indeed, returning to the original SDE news item, there’s no mentioned of a one-off run, limited numbers etc. _except_ that in the comments, someone posted that Fish’s online store mentioned that they were told by Parlophone that it was “…a limited product so we are only doing one factory run! Once it’s gone, it’s gone “. Not exactly broadcasting from the rooftops.

I missed the first release as I waited to pick up later (I try not to buy too much at once otherwise I know I won’t listen to it). If I’d known it was limited, I’d have grabbed it immediately, so this re-run is welcome.


I think the only people who care about the issue are people who buy music to sell it on, which I am not condemning as we all have to make a living, but people can hardly complain at £30 for a 5 disc set, which is clearly great value.

CJ Feeney

The exact same comments have been made about Richard and Linda Thompson’s set. Andy Batt said more would be pressed if demand existed, the UMC statement said it was sold out, and no replacements sets would be available from retailers. There is “wiggle room ” in these statements, and some people like to convnince themselves they have a limited edition, and ebay sellers and record companies are slow to contradict them if it encourages sales at higher prices.


Perhaps the record companies are looking at the resale/scalper prices which these are going for on eBay and thinking something’s wrong here as they seem to be the ones making the least amount of money from the items in question. As somebody who missed out on the original release but managed to grab a copy from SDE yesterday I am certainly glad they are doing this.


Where can I buy with shipping to Brasil?

Dave Finch

Gone! I do despair with who is running things these days!! Things like this should be catalogue items!! Same with the career spanning box sets, they ALWAYS sell! But i suppose they are more interested these days in putting out overpriced coloured/ pic disc Vinyl than keeping stuff as catalogue!….


Too slow as well. Crossing fingers for tomorrow. Surely if demand is there they can print more!


Oh my god…too late ? or the link to order will be available in a few hours or next days ??

I hope so…

Simon George

Thanks Paul

Order accepted – Wow – missed out 1st time around although I have all the other deluxe boxes. Sorry to see that others missed out!

Also looking forward to further JT box sets as I have them all also – only my 3/4th copy of some of them of them over the years (LP, 1st CD, Remaster CD and now deluxe) – I must be a sucker for punishment.


Nowhere else to order, so I think Paul just found a unopend box from 2017 in his vault. Hahahaha.

Hope to get one, missed it on the first rund and missed it now. Fingers crossed.

John D

Gutted missed it again


Arrrggghhhh!!!! Too late. Press more ye beggars :-)


Sorry I didn’t buy my copy from your site, Paul. Panicked and had to make sure! :-). Thanks for a great site and all the great work you do for us.
