Review by ClemofNazareth
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Prog Folk Researcher
3 stars I have the 12” picture disk version of this single, issued in 1985 by EMI. I had to have it imported back then, as the World Wide Web didn’t exist yet and even though we still had neighborhood record stores, stuff like this didn’t usually show up on the shelves. Only cost me $6 USD though (the price sticker is still on the vinyl sleeve it came in).

This isn’t really anything exceptional, although I love the picture. Marillion always had such exceptional cover art back then. The front side of the record features a version of “Lavender” from ‘Misplace Childhood’, but it is titled “Lavender Blue”. There’s a slightly different guitar track from Steve Rothery, and Fish’s vocal outro is missing. I’ve never heard quite the same version anywhere else that I know of.

The back side of the disk features a picture of the band and includes the single “Freaks” and the album version of “Lavender”.

That’s about it. Like I said, nothing special about this other than the version I have is an imported picture disk which is pretty cool-looking. Three stars I guess, although collector pieces like this are kind of hard to ‘rate’ solely on the strength of the music. Good luck finding one though – I’m not selling mine.

peace

3 stars The Lavender single was released after the successful one Kayleigh which peaked until number 2 in the UK chart, while Lavender was just no.5. Never mind, as long as the album Misplaced Childhood reached number 1 in the UK Chart. Both are love songs with Kayleigh as representing Fish relationship with his girl friend. Musically Lavender is not as great as Kayleigh because the chords and notes are pretty straightforward pop song as compared to Kayleigh. Put it this way, try yourself to sing Kayleigh and you will find it hard to emulate its melody especially when the verse says Do you remember? and followed with Chalhalk melting on the playground wall.... Yes, I believ you can sing it but I don't think you can create similar nuance as the original version. The best Kayleigh cover is the one played by DARIUS in live version with different arrangement.

But if you sing Lavender, I belive you can emulate what Fish is singing because there is nothing sepcific in the nuance of the song, it's like typical pop song. If I am asked to enjoy this song as presented here in this single, I am sure I tend to dislike it. But, as part of overall concept album that flows seamlessly from one song to another, Lavender provides great musical break before it enters to brilliant Heart of Lothian. For me personally, I was given a gift of this cover from a good friend I'an in the form of wall clock. It's a great gift.

For those who love Fish era Marillion, owning this single is a must. You can have the digital version in the Single Collection 82-88. Owning the vynyl is a great thing, I believe. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
