Product description

Product Description

In a Special Place is a 15 track album comprising never before released demos from This Is The Sea, The Waterboys' critically acclaimed, and fifth highest UK charting album. The demos featured were recorded on the first day of recording the 1985 album which Scott describes as "the record on which I achieved all my youthful ambitions".

The majority of the stripped back tracks are Mike Scott at the piano with an occasional drum machine. All songs are written by Scott except "Don”t Bang The Drum" which he co-wrote with Karl Wallinger; this was the last Waterboys album with input from Wallinger before he went on to form World Party.

A number of demos on In a Special Place were subsequently recorded for the album; these include "Don’t Bang The Drum", "Be My Enemy", "The Pan Within", "Old England" and the iconic "Whole Of The Moon" which reached number 26 in the 1985 UK singles chart, and later  number 3 in the UK singles chart when reissued in 1991. Other tracks never made the final album cut, and are heard on here for the very first time.

The CD booklet for In a Special Place features notes about the songs written by Mike Scott along with scans of the lyrics from his notebooks.
