1988 Warner 2438752 Promotional (Compact Disc)
Limited edition of 1250 copies in a black presentation box containing the CD and five 7"×7" inserts, one of text and four with pictures. The text on the final print reads: "EITHNE NI BHRAONAIN, now known simply as ENYA left her home in County Donegal to join the family band, Clannad. After playing with them for two albums and tours, she decided to make the break and go on alone. Whilst developing this new direction, ENYA composed, scored and sang on such sound tracks as David Puttnam's The Frog Prince and BBC TV's The Celts as well as working briefly with Sinead O'Connor, before emerging with her first truly solo work, Watermark. Sometimes a haunting solo voice, sometimes a choral swathe of one hundred tracks of her own multi-tracked voice. Softening the technology of synthesisers with natural and acoustic sounds is central to ENYA'S work. Whether as a composer, arranger, keyboard player or singer, the emergence of ENYA will not go unnoticed."
