The Waterboys

To celebrate a series of guest appearances as DJ on RTE 2FM here’s a track Mike Scott recorded live in those same studios 24 years earlier with fellow Waterboys Steve Wickham (violin) and Anthony Thistlethwaite (saxophone, mandolin). It’s a cover of a song Bob Dylan recorded when working on 1983 album ‘Infidels’ but which wouldn’t be offically released until the 1988 album ‘Down In The Groove’. A version by The Waterboys appears on ‘The Live Adventures of the Waterboys’ in 1988. This particular track reached 11 in the 1986 Fab Fifty poll.
