  • Welcome to the Dag's Dungeon Page. Dag Reinert Johansen is without any doubt one of only a handful of contenders for the title of   'The #1 Waterboys collector of all the official recordings and paraphernalia'.

    This page contains images of many of Dag's treasures that go far beyond the simple 'Memorabilia' tag. Many of these are classed as Historical Artefacts of  Mike Scott and the Band's recordings.

    Huge thanks to him for shining a long overdue light on these         treasures and for sharing these nuggets here for all of us to see.

                    * More Gems to be added here very soon... *

    6. ☄ Giant-Sized Concert Poster (2008) ☄

      This original concert poster is a complete one-off piece. It is a giant-sized poster made of tough plastic and to be displayed outside or above the concert venue.

      It measures an incredible 150 cm X 250 cm. To give some perspective of the actual size, the 12 inch sleeve of the Medicine Bow vinyl single has been placed on it.

      This unique piece of artwork was made to promote a show in Dag's hometown of Fredrikstad,    Norway in 2008.

    8. ☄ Open To Spirit: The Transformational Music of Mike Scott and The Waterboys ☄

      One of the rarest of all Waterboys CD's and perhaps the hardest one of all to find, this 'Open To Spirit: The Transformational Music of Mike Scott and The Waterboys' Compilation album was released in very limited numbers in 2002.

      The CD booklet contains a 'Shadow Dancer' photograph by Mike and it also contains the song lyrics.

      This collection is a very unique combination of both Mike solo material and Waterboys material and the song selection was compiled by Janette.

      Mike writes: 'This was a promotional CD created in 2002 and manufactured in small quantities for  our American new age publicist of the time to distribute to new age / holistic / spiritual    publications  and radio stations'.

    10. ☄ Big Music 7-Inch Proof Sleeve ☄

      An extremely rare proof sleeve for the planned cover art for the Big Music seven-inch single.

      There are about five fully assembled Big Music sleeves known to be in some hardcore fans'   collections but this unique sleeve was never actually issued and it is highly sought after.
