Early Stages (Official Bootleg Box Set 1982-1987) is a box set containing live recordings of Marillion with their former singer Fish. The recordings were made by the BBC for radio broadcast, and are from five concerts performed by the band in the UK between 1982 and 1987. The packaging was designed by Mark Wilkinson, who had designed all Marillion covers of the 1980s and went on to work with Fish after his departure. The set was released to retail by EMI on 17 November 2008.

The set contains the following recordings:

The set is now out of print, but was replaced in 2013 by a 2 disc set called Early Stages - The Highlights which features a selection of tracks from each concert, plus one new track, a version of "Market Square Heroes" recorded at the Fife Aid concert in 1988. This was the final song of Fish's final live performance with the band.
