Their cover of [Van Morrison's Sweet Thing] on this set is an absolute masterpiece.

Shame the same thing cannot be said for Ellie Goulding's cover of How Long Will I Love You.

Agreed. Not many can (should!!) cover Van's songs (I'm looking at you, Mr Stewart!) but this one is beautiful. Incidentally, i also think Hozier's live version of this amazing song is a triumph.

Loved The Waterboys ever since I first saw them live in the mid-80s They finished their set wiith an incredible cover of Purple Rain in those days...). I've read that Whole Of The Moon is written about Prince (Mike Scott's musical hero, Apparently) and the song is now covered by Prince on his tours. Aawwww...

Cannot say I have been a massive fan of recent stuff, but saw them in Oxford a couple of years ago during the promotional tour of this Fisherman's Blues complete set and it was an incredible evening.
Great band, heat added
