5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! This is fantastic....!!!, 8 May 2006
This review is from: Fisherman's Blues (Audio CD)
Ever since Mike Scott released the sublime Fisherman's Blues in 88 I have been a big fan of this cd. Listening to it clountless times over the decades the music never seems to date, always sounding fresh and fulfilling. So what to make of the new disc 2? Well, in short it's easily the equal of disc 1... if not better! From the first track Carolan's Welcome we're given the impression that this is a solid continuation of the first and original album, there's the beautiful tin whistle accompanying fiddles and bouzouki... but wait...there's a country-rock arrangement figuring heavily in the next song, Killing My Heart which is fantastic!! Then we have You In The Sky, a never-released, never-performed-in-concert song inspired by an American Indian poem set to gospel music. What follows then is music I can only describe as a joy that'll put a big fat smile on your face... this is so good you wonder what was the logic in keeping it under lock and key for so long. This is a goldmine! The uptempo blues If I Can't Have You is worth the album price alone...and just wait till hear Rattle My Bones And Shiver My Soul!!! Trust me, if you like the original Fisherman's Blues then you're gonna love this one. The sound is a vast improvement over the 80's recording that up until now was the only version available. In short, this has been given the same treatment as the remastered This is The Sea 2 discer... but this is much much much better.
