The Waterboys

An Appointment With Mr Yeats




Limited green Vinyl

An Appointment with Mr Yeats sees the words of W B Yeats, Ireland”s greatest poet, merged with the music of The Waterboys, one of Britain and Ireland”s greatest bands, in a truly unique and ambitious musical undertaking. The album was first released in 2011, and has been remixed and remastered for re-issue, now containing 6 previously unreleased bonus tracks. Waterboys vocalist Mike Scott first set Yeats to music in 1988 when he wrote a musical accompaniment for the classic poem The Stolen Child, included on their seminal album “Fisherman”s Blues”. Scott”s love of literature flows throughout the work of The Waterboys. Scott explained: “I grew up in a house full of books so literature and language have always been important to me. Working with other peoples” words is something that comes as natural to me as working with my own. In a way it”s even more immediate; I”ve always found writing music an easier process than the writing of lyrics, and setting words of the quality of Yeats” to music is an enormous privilege and treat.” An Appointment with Mr. Yeats is a unique opportunity for lovers of great music and great literature to celebrate the union of song and word in one spectacular record.
