The Waterboys box set track listing

The Waterboys / Fisherman's Blues

Back in March we revealed that a mammoth reissue of The Waterboys‘ 1988 album Fisherman’s Blues was coming in October. Although a seven-CD set was announced, Uncut are now reporting a six CD box and have also published a full track listing which is detailed below. Don’t worry, although it appears to have ‘lost’ a disc, the track count remains the same at 121, with 85 said to be previously unreleased.

5 September 2013 update: Two boxes have appeared on Amazon UK. A 6CD set as listed below and a 7CD box with 12 x 12″ vinyl records

Anyone know what is in the 12 x 12″ vinyl albums that go with the deluxe set ?

Martin

Yes that makes sense Paul but Amazon clearly stated ”12 x 12″ vinyl – a total of 19 discs” !! Yes, they said 19 discs . So on that basis I pre-ordered it – of course not really knowing what I should be expecting.

Mike

The ‘mastertapes’ bbc radio documentary on this was fascinating, can be downloaded as a podcast.

Mike

I, a different Mike, agree!

Randy Francis

I know this puppy is most likely to be pricey. I’ve been saving up ever since it was announced. I can hardly wait.

Excited here as well. There’s bound to be a number of throwaway instrumentals and short tracks, but with 85 or so unreleased tracks, hopefully there will be a large number of gems. I’ve been checking online for pricing information since the set was first announced, but no sign yet…

William

Cannot wait for this, so excited!!, 7th disc or not!

Will

Any word on pricing?

Mark

I believe there will still be a disc 7 comprised of original versions (various artists) country/gospel/folk songs that inspired the Fisherman Blues sessions

Mark

Mike Scott confirmed on radio that CD 7 is called ‘Fishermans Roots’ and is as per my abovedescription…various country/gospel/folk songs which inspired the sessions
