AND IN THE BEGINNING...God said "Let there be Horslips"

"Long before Riverdance, Horslips brought the terrible beauty of Irish music to the public. I was only 17 when my father dragged me, kicking and screaming (but silently, of course) from my beloved home in Ireland. I was forced to complete my last year of secondary school (Senior) in CA (talk about culture shock!) and graduated in 74. I was able to bring my record collection with me--and Horslips helped as I had collected many of their LP's and added more afterwards. Playing them never fails to remind me of Ireland, the magic I felt at age 17, and the day my conservative IBM father, hearing Horslips playing in my room, stuck his head inside the door, and asked, "what's that music you're listening to? It's sounds good. Irish, is it? ...but...what is it...?" The poor man _hated_ rock &roll, denouncing it as the devil's own, but even HE loved Horslips! Now THAT's HIGH praise indeed (as anyone who knew my father would heartily agree)! I bought this CD and am magically transported to the land of my youth! Oh to be 17, young & in love, and dancing in Eire again! With Horslips, I can always return to such a magical moment!"

"I don't own this particular album, but I do own all of the HORSLIPS albums so I'm familiar with all of the songs in this collection, and in my opinion, K-tel has done an excellent job in picking the best of HORSLIPS entire career. Horslips started out playing traditional Irish music and beefing it up mixing in electric guitars, electric bass, keyboards etc. with the more traditional wistles, fiddle, mandolin, concertina etc. to create a unique blend of celtic/rock. As time progressed they began mixing in more pop with the music, only to return with even more traditional sounds, only to turn again to harder edged rock leaving most of their celtic beginnings behind. This collection spans all of those styles showcasing the broad spectrum of HORSLIPS' music. All of the songs on here are top notch."

"Every-one has heard of The Clancy's & Tommy Makem, The Furey's, The Wolftones and The Pogues, Sinead O'Connor, The Cranberries. What about the band that, in my opinion, first melded they celtic taditions and popular music, well here they are, somewhat forgotten but with powerful music that could almost be mistaken for "Tull". Give Horslips a space inyour collection, you won't regret it!!!"
