New Racket Records Releases For 2009
Hello all!
A quick word from the Racket Office team before we depart for the biggest & hopefully the best ever Marillion Convention at Centre Parcs in sunny Holland.
As we are about to jump on the bus, there's just time to let you in on some exciting new releases which we will be selling at the weekend ....read on for more!
The first is a 2 Disc 3 concert live DVD - filmed at the 2007 Convention titled
'This Strange Convention'. It features the whole of 'This Strange Engine'
performed live, plus the Saturday and Sunday nights as released on the live CD's 'Friends' and 'Family'.
You can check out a couple of the songs at www.youtube.com/marilliononline and get a glimpse of some of the delights awaiting you on 'This Strange Convention' ...enjoy!
Second is the first new Racket Records Live CD since 2007:
'Happiness is Cologne' is a 2CD live album from the band's 2008 Happiness is the Road performance at the E-Werk in Cologne. This concert has been beautifully mixed & mastered to a high quality & serves as a fantastic document to what has proved to be a hugely successful tour.
And now 'Something for the Ladies'....
A new addition for your Summer wardrobes - the all new Marillion Women’s Summer T-shirt. A fantastic new design, everyone will be wearing them this Summer! Now available for you to view & buy on the website.
We think all these new releases look & sound great! If you want to get your hands on them then head over to the Racket Shop at www.marillion.com/shop and you can buy them right now!!": ...these will all also be on sale at the Marillion Weekend in Holland, too!
Please be aware that as we are all away in Holland we will not process any orders until after 23rd March, but obviously we will pack furiously upon our return and get your orders to you as quickly as we can before we all set off to Montreal for the Marillion Weekend over there!
One final note The Happiness On The Road live download series is now complete! – thank you for your patience with these last two shows.
The Trezzo 'Live Club' show & Marillion's highly acclaimed final night of the tour at the Paris L'Olympia are now available to buy.
