The Waterboys - Fisherman's Blues
The Waterboys, “Fisherman’s Blues”
I first heard of the Watherboys when “Church Not Made with Hands” came out on Pagan Place. What a wonderful moment. I think I was still in High School at the time, and to hear Mike Scott’s take on things was a revelation.
Several years later, out comes Fisherman’s Blues, which is one of the best albums of the 80s. If you don’t know the Waterboys, check out Fisherman’s Blues, Room to Roam, and Pagan Place, and then everything else.
They can be a bit uneven, but then again, can’t we all?
“Fisherman’s Blues” is perfect. This is a solid live version. Look for the studio version as well.
