This review is from: Fisherman's Box: The Complete Fisherman's Blues Sessions 1986-88 [6 Disc Box Set] (Audio CD)
As an owner of the original single and collectors double CD versions of Fisherman's Blues, plus the Too close to Heaven / Fisherman's Blues Part 2 CDs, I was a little worried that the additional material provided in this set would disappoint. I needn't have worried - and should have known better as Mike Scott has always struck me as having far too much integrity to release material not worthy of him and his ever changing, expanding and evolving band of musical brothers. In brief, if you liked the original, you'll adore this. I haven't stopped playing it since receipt, each new listening providing something different at which to marvel. The accompanying booklet is great too, Mike's comments painting little camoes the sum of which comprise the giant canvas of Fisherman's Blues era Waterboys, a canvas which I will always treasure. No problems with the packaging either (I elected the 6 CD version so it may be different packaging to the other version) which others have unfortunately experienced.
