The Waterboys 1990 album Room to Roam was the bands fifth album. It continued the Folk-Rock sound of 1988’s Fisherman’s Blues and was recorded at Spiddal House in Galway, where the last recording sessions from the preceding album, Fisherman’s Blues, had been recorded. Room to Roam would be the last of The Waterboys’ Folk-rock sound until the release of Universal Hall in 2003. Fiddler Steve Wickham, who had been a large inspiration for the change to that sound for Fisherman’s Blues, left the band shortly before Room to Roam was released.
This new vinyl has been produced to compliment The Magnificent Seven CD/DVD/Book box set. Mastered for Half-speed and cut by Miles Showell at Abbey Road and made into a double album running at 45rpm. The original artwork has been presented in a new 5mm wide spine sleeve, polyline inners and insert.
