The Stolen Child, is an interpretation of a classic Yeats's poem which I now find, in my more advanced years, to be beautifully realised and genuinely moving Highly recommended album!
I hadn't listened to this for years. I strum the title track on an accoustic guitar occasionally but I rarely break anything out on vinyl these days. And then I heard "Girl Called Johnny" on the radio - the breakthrough track for this fine band and a track on their very good debut album. First stop Amazon, and I saw this CD just one disk, no extras for less than four quid.
It would be rude not to buy it. From start to finish, the songwriting on this album is just fantastic. The playing is passionate and joyful.
There isn't a duff minute. And it hasn't aged one second. As I write this "When Ye Go Away" has started and the beautiful, subtle start to that song has me welling up. Now to get the rest of the back catalogue. But a word of advice to anyone new to the Waterboys. Start with this, then go backwards. And if you are feeling voracious, go forwards from here tentatively Mike Scott's output gets noticeably patchier after this.
This was a start of a classic period for in my humble opinion the greatest band band in the loosest sense there has been. Now you have the chance to obtain it with an extra CD of tracks recorded at the time this album was released. But disc 2. Did not like rest of cd. Wonderful album- fast speedy delivery too.

Flag neitherboth on March 18, General Comment The first verse describes the longing for the freedom you can experience out at sea, where the dry land and your everyday life are far away. The second verse describes the longing for the freedom you experience on a fast train carrying you away from everyday life and running so fast that you cannot do not have to interact with the surroundings it is going through.
The use of the two different metaphors in the two verses demonstrates that the song is not really about being a fisherman or riding on trains. It is about striving for freedom by leaving everyday life, routine, and bad memories behind. The third verse adds a VERY beautiful twist to this idea: The narrator of the songs knows that he will find freedom on that day when he meets his new love "I will take thee in my hand".
So you cannot find freedom from bad experiences in the past by runnig AWAY from something e. The chorus doesn't really fit with the first two verses: Someone travelling alone, in a rough environment, and away from bad things - why should this person sing: "With light in my head, with you in my arms"???
However, after the third verse the chorus suddenly makes sense: Only by going for new ideas "light" and new love you can really find freedom from your troublesome past and all the drugs you used, of course.
