Description:

2CD ALQUIN – The Marks Sessions – Expanded Edition

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. Marks (1972) was a promising kick-off to Alquin’s recording career and showed a band searching for a definitive style.

As several tapes from the original sessions were unearthed earlier this year, The 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.

In addition, this 2cd-set 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 Marks and already pointing musically of what was to come on its follow-up The Mountain Queen.

The recordings have been exclusively remastered from the original master-tapes. In addition, The Marks Sessions contains an informative booklet with the complete Alquin story and rare memorabilia.
