The Waterboys - Fisherman's Blues (2nd Hand Compact Disc)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 0094632158925
The original 1988, single compact disc, release on Ensign Records.
The album marked a change in the band's sound, with them abandoning their earlier grandiose rock sound for a mixture of traditional Irish music, traditional Scottish music, country music, and rock and roll.
Critics were divided on its release with some disappointed at the change of direction and others ranking it among the Waterboys' best work.
The album was the Waterboys' best selling album, reaching a number 13 placing on the U.K. charts on release, and 76 on the Billboard 200.

". . . shares the same spiritual rock space as U2's late 80's work, but with one essential difference: it's rooted in fiddle-driven Irish folk music." - Google Review.
""Fisherman's Blues" sounds unlike anything else released up to this point. It’s drawing energies from all kinds of places, mixing traditions and fusing pure folk and with Celtic rock. There is a natural beauty and purity to Scott's writing on this album that is day and night to the bloated excesses of the stadium rock of the late 80's. "Fisherman's Blues" works best late at night with a bit of lubrication but it is an immersive listening experience when given the right focus." - Rate Your Music.
