Marillion - Script for a Jester's Tear (1983)

Script for a Jester's Tear is the first album by the progressive rock band Marillion. Released in 1983, it included songs like "Forgotten Sons" and the title track, regarded by some as modern classics. The single released before this album was "Market Square Heroes" with the double B-sides, "Three Boats Down from the Candy" and the 19 minute epic "Grendel". (That version of "Grendel" is not the same version as the one on the second CD on the 2 CD version of this album.) "He Knows You Know" and "Garden Party" were also released as singles, and became Top 40 hits in the UK. This is the only Marillion LP to feature Mick Pointer, founding and current drummer for Arena. There was supposed to be a rubber plant featured on the album's cover, per Fish's request; however, Mark Wilkinson who air-brushed this and several other albums for Marillion, forgot to include it. - Wikipedia
