Musical Best Bets: Waterboys, McCartney’s Wings over America

2013 will offer the release of two special box sets that will thrill music fans.

wingsoveramericaThe first is the re-release on May 28 of Paul McCartney’s 1976 live album, “Wings over America“. This deluxe edition box set will include a remastered, two-disc version of “Wings over America,” a bonus audio disc that was recorded at San Francisco’s Cow Palace, and a DVD of the TV special “Wings over the World.” The box set also includes a 136-page commemorative tour book and four art books that showcase photos and memorabilia. You’ll get programs, pictures, memorabilia, lyrics, 60 pages of exclusive photos of the tour from Linda McCartney, and 80 pages of vintage drawings by Humphrey Ocean.

Fans of Sir Paul should scoop up “Wings over America”.

waterboysThe second gem available is the 25th anniversary re-release of the classic Waterboys album “Fisherman’s Blues“. The seven CD set contains 121 tracks from the album sessions, 85 of which have never been released before. The stunning trove will thrill fans of the Celtic-inspired Scottish band. “Fisherman’s Blues” was probably the high water mark for the Waterboys. It’s a swirling blend of folk, celtic and rock, recorde between 1986-1988. The Waterboys never broke it big in the U.S, but the album is considered a classic by fans of the genre. The band’s leader, Mike Scott, selected and annotated all the contents of the box set.

The release of the 25th anniversary of “Fisherman’s Blues” will be in October 2013.
