An Appointment with Mr. Yeats

An Appointment With Mr Yeats sees Mike Scott taking the poetry of Irish poet and playwright William Butler Yeats and setting it to music. Produced by Scott himself with the help of Waterboys bassist Marc Arciero, the album is the culmination of a project that Scott had first initiated with a reworking of Yeats' "The Stolen Child" on the 1988 album Fisherman's Blues.
