Real to Reel is Marillion's first live album, recorded at the Spectrum, Montreal, Canada, and De Montfort Hall, Leicester, England. In addition to two songs each from the first two albums, Script for a Jester's Tear (1983) and Fugazi, the original standard (vinyl) version contained two tracks not previously available on any albums, the a-side of the band's 1982 debut single "Market Square Heroes", and "Cinderella Search", the b-side of "Assassing" (1984). The track "Emerald Lies" (from Fugazi) was originally a bonus track on the CD and cassette versions. The album, from which no singles were released, reached No. 8 on the UK album charts[2][3] and stayed on the charts for 22 weeks. It was produced by Marillion and Simon Hanhart, who had mixed the first two studio albums and co-produced the studio version of "Cinderella Search".

1997 re-issue[edit]

In 1997, the album was re-released as a two-disc set bundled with Brief Encounter, an EP originally released by EMI's American label Capitol Records to promote the band's 1986 US tour. The 1997 edition was not part of the remastered series of Marillion's first eight studio albums that EMI released in 1997/1998. However, the two-disc set was digitally remastered at Abbey Road Studios by Brian Fifield.

2005 re-issue (Japan)[edit]

In 2005, a "vinyl replica" CD version was released in Japan. This edition includes two additional bonus tracks, "Margaret" and "Charting the Single", both originally from the 1983 Garden Party single and its 12" version, respectively.
