1983, The Waterboys, cassette

Cassette Tuesday we go w/ the debut of The Waterboys.

Scottish musician Mike Scott created The Waterboys which cover
Celtic, Folk, Rock n Roll but on this debut it's more Folk, Rock n Roll.
The Waterboys reminded me of U2 when they first started out. 
I actually heard of The Waterboys from their later release "Fishermen Blues" in '88 
that was a very popular recording.
This made me go to the back catalog of The Waterboys and picked up this debut cassette.
"A Girl Called Johnny" was the hit off this recording which I posted the youtube video 
at bottom of page. "The Three Day Man", "It Should Have Been You", 
and "Savage Earth Heart" my favorite tracks on this debut. 
The reissued version added 5 more songs.

1992, Indigo Girls - Rites Of Passage, cassette

This Cassette Tuesday we go to Atlanta, Georgia band
the Indigo Girls.

"Rites Of Passage" is the Indigo Girls 4th release. Amy Ray and Emily Saliers
been performing together since the early 80's. By '85 they became the Indigo Girls
which took off. Their first 3 releases were popular but I really liked this release.
The hit "Galileo" was the only hit but there are many tracks on this cassette that is just as good.
A cover of Dire Straits "Romeo And Juliet" (youtube at end of page) is one of my favorite 
tracks along w/ "Three Hits".
