THE WATERBOYS - Live @ Glastonbury 1986


This recording of The Waterboys legendary appearance at The Glastonbury Festival in 1986 is complete and uncut. A great bootleg, much loved and played by myself over the years. Mike Scott is on fine form and the band play a balanced set; from the rocky to the folky. The recording captures the vibe of people sitting in a field listening to a great band, in a time before you had to register for tickets to watch bands as homogenised as the milk from Michael Eavis’s cows. Due to the length of the recording I’ve had to split it into two parts: SIDE 1 and SIDE 2, just like the tape. Enjoy!

Cheers for this Nuzz it's great to have the complete show as it's such a good 'un.

The accompanying cassette inlay pic is almost as good as the music. Takes me back to rummaging through tapes at those bootleg market stalls of yesteryear.

Many thanks, this was (one of) my best ever gigs, I had a BBC recording of some of it, but this is superb. Haven't heard it for 22years! Saw them last year at Glastonbury - but not a patch on this.

Thanks again

Thanks, I have been trying for years to find a recording of this set. I remember being blown away by it at the time, glad to find out it it really was that good and wasn't just the cider.
