PICTURES: The Waterboys / “Fisherman’s Box” Deluxe Edition


The WaterboysFisherman’s Box 7CD+LP deluxe box set has been out for a few weeks and we thought we’d bring you some photos of the package. A cheaper, smaller clamshell variant (6CDs) has been delayed and is now looking like being released on 18 November.

The deluxe box includes a heavyweight vinyl version of the original Fisherman’s Blues album as well as a large format 12″x 12″ booklet, which includes some great photos and Mike Scott’s track-by-track guide to all 121 songs in this set.

Three art prints also feature, and someone has made the good call not to put any text on the prints which would spoil the images, so we can see these being framed and put on many a fans’ wall, especially the great (colourised) album cover shot.

We did have a little trouble getting some of the CDs out due to some glue residue, but it wasn’t a major issue. The foam setting is certainly preferable to using card.

If you’re a big fan of the album and/or the band, we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the bigger deluxe box, although admittedly if you don’t have any use for the vinyl you are paying an extra £30 for the bigger box, the improved booklet, some art prints and the bonus CD of songs by artists that influenced Fisherman’s Blues.

Fisherman’s Box Deluxe Edition is out now. Full track listing here.
