2 stars This "Acoustic Sessions" album was recorded "Live" at the Funny Farm (in 94) and is effectively called "The Dick Bros Record Company".

It is a promotional offering, while the full blown acoustic album consists of a two CD set which is comprised of this one as well as a second part which was recorded in Krakow (October 95). The latter concert has been released under the form of dual DVD + CD (in.2005). As such, the double CD set will be issued in a remastered version in 2000.

This is for the history, but what do we get in here ? Well, there is not much to write home about this acoustic set. Of course, Fish is a great vocalist, but the minimalist environment of this album (although he I surrounded by his comrades) is not the one I like the most.

There are three songs coming out "Internal Exile", four from his new album (at the time) "Suits" and two genuine "Marillion" ones : Kayleigh and Sugar Mice. Nothing from his great debut album is featured, but since none of these acoustic versions do speak to me, there is no harm.

Two stars. For curious only.
