Track of the day: Fish – State of Mind

I’ve been a Marillion fan for years, but mainly of the Fish era. Partly because of the music the band created at the time, partly because of the emotion the big man managed to put in both his lyrics and vocals. That didn’t change when he left, and he found great musicians for his debut album, including one of my favourite bass players, John Giblin. On this track, from the album Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors, the fretless bass provides the signature of the song, which lyrically deals with the political situation in the UK at the end of the Thatcher era.
So, a second ‘Friday track of the day’, one of my all time favourites. See you on Monday for a new track, from a new album.

Enjoy once, and then again…
