The Waterboys – The Whole Of The Moon / The Golden Age Melody (12″)

ImageHappy St. Patrick’s Day with this classic re-release from 1991

Mike Scott and his band produced some memorable and diverse stuff in the late 80’s early 90’s. This was the student union song of choice for many D.J’s with it’s anthemic qualities and listening to it now was more electronic than I remembered it, Karl Wallinger’s influence no doubt and shades of Prince via Paisley Park. The B-side is a hotch potch of studio and semi-live tracks giving a good flavour of the band, the shoe gaze instrumental track “High Far Soon” is immense. (Starts off a bit crackly, though)
