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. Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes.
