A Change Of Seasons is an EP by American progressive rock / metal band Dream Theater, originally released in September 1995 via EastWest Records.

This 2018 expanded vinyl release of A Change of Seasons EP comprises the 23-minute title track and a collection of live cover songs performed at a fan club concert at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, England in January 1995.

A Change of Seasons was the first Dream Theater release featuring Derek Sherinian on keyboards.

The song "A Change of Seasons" was originally written in 1989 and was intended to be a part of the band’s 1992 album Images And Words, but at almost 17 minutes, it was deemed too long for that album. It had nevertheless been performed live by the band, who continued to revise it through the years. Fans around the world put pressure on the band to officially release the song. The petition was successful, and the group entered BearTracks Studios in New York in May 1995 to rewrite and record the now 23-minute-long song.

Although the song includes audio samples from the 1989 film Dead Poets Society (as well as quotes from the 1648 Robert Herrick poem "To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time"), the lyrics were not inspired by the film.

Although the record is labelled as an EP, its running time of 57:30 makes it significantly longer than a standard EP, and even many LPs, including Dream Theater's first two albums. As it was important for the band and label for it not to be perceived as the latest studio album, they tagged it an EP.

This album is being released on vinyl for the very first time in 2018!

Check out the tracks:  A Change of Seasons”; “Funeral For A Friend”; and “Perfect Strangers”.

This limited edition double album 2LP record set is the first pressing of 2,500 individually numbered copies on 180 gram audiophile blue and white mixed coloured vinyl with a 4 page booklet, pressed in Europe.
