Best of Both Worlds is a two-disc compilation album by British neo-progressive rock band Marillion released in by EMI Recordswho the band had been signed to from their debut in until being dropped in The title refers to Marillion's two distinct "eras" with lead singers Fish — and Steve Hogarth since By the time this compilation was released, both line-ups had recorded Heart Of Lothian (Single Version) - Marillion - The Best Of Both Worlds studio albums each.
Two different covers were created for the compilation, one by Mark Wilkinsonwho had worked for the band during the Fish years, and one by Bill Smith Studio, who took over after Fish's and Wilkinson's departure. The booklet was printed so that either of the covers could be displayed in the jewel case according to personal preference. The track list, comprising 29 songs, was put together by Lucy Jordache, then the manager responsible for the band in EMI, in close collaboration with the band's fans' mailing list"Freaks" named after the eponymous song.
Jordache also motivated singers Fish and Hogarth to contribute liner notes —at a time when both camps were not yet on friendly terms again—by telling each of them the other had already agreed to do so. Although the compilation did not contain any previously unreleased material, it was attractive to existing fans as it included various edited versions that were not easily accessible at the time, resulting in "better than expected" sales. Although it is not mentioned in the album credits, the versions of "Easter" and "The Uninvited Guest" presented here are single edits.
