'Fisherman's Blues' is in my opinion one of the best albums of the 80s, and so a CD of unreleased material from the same recording sessions was a tempting prospect. Albums of archive music are often a bad idea, motivated more by the need for revenue than by any artistic consideration, and this album certainly contains some material which should have been left to rot in the vault ('A Home in the Meadow' is a real stinker). However, along with a good dollop of self-indulgence there are some excellent tracks, notably 'Higher in Time' and 'Custer's Blues', which are vintage Waterboys, and the title track,which is quite simply one of the best things I have ever heard in my life. Worth buying for this alone. Stunning!
