Horslips

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Horslips - Dancehall Sweethearts Dancehall Sweethearts
Pop New - LP CPL1-0709 RCA
Sealed 1974 Original. “The Third Album By This Irish Quintet, Dancehall Sweethearts Abandoned The Overt Celtic-Rock Sound That Defined Their First Two Albums, Happy To Meet Sorry To Part And The Tain. Subtle Folk Touches Are Still Present Here But To A Much Lesser Degree. Charles O'Connor's Fiddle Parts Aren't As Bold Or Traditionally Based As On Previous Records And Keyboardist Jim Lockhart Doesn't Accentuate Horslips' Songs With Tin Whistle And Uilleann Pipes With The Frequency Of Past Recordings. So While This Album Succeeds In Their Effort To Create More Accessible, Radio-Friendly Music, It Wasn't The Commercial Breakthrough This Band Had Hoped For To Compete More Directly With Similar, Successful Groups Like Jethro Tull And Wishbone Ash. That Said, Dancehall Sweethearts Is Still Regarded As One Of Their Finer Recordings And The More Mainstream Approach Of This Record Fully Reveals That Instrumentally They Were Every Bit As Talented As Their More Famous Early Seventies Rock & Roll Counterparts.” - Dave Sleger, All Music Guide Shrink Tears Along Top Of Jacket.... more details
 
Horslips - The Man Who Built America The Man Who Built America
Pop New - LP DJM-20 DJM
Sealed 1979 Original. Tiny Saw Cut. Rear Shrink Has The Original Thrifty Drug Price Tag In Place. “A Concept Album About An Irish Emigrant Who Makes A Success Of Himself In The US, This Album Is Energetic And Often Engaging, With Some Excellent Songs ("The Man Who Built America"). The Irish Content Is Fairly Subdued Here, With The Overall Sound Favoring Rock Songs Built Around Moderately Complicated Hooks.” All Music Guide.... more details
 
Horslips - Book Of Invasions - A Celtic Symphony Book Of Invasions - A Celtic Symphony
Pop Used - LP DJF 20498 DJM
Mint 1976 UK Laminated Jacket Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. “Returning To Their Original Formula Of Rock & Roll, Folk, And Prog Rock, Book Of Invasions Rivals 1973's The Tain As Their Most Consistent And Creative And Established The Band As That Decade's Preeminent Purveyor Of Those Three Entwined Genres. Neither Fairport Convention Nor Steeleye Span Rocked As Convincingly Or Consistently As They Did And Jethro Tull's Fleeting Folk Fancies Didn't Qualify Them As A Folk-Rock Outfit. Often Compared To Ian Anderson's Group, Horslips Furthered That Notion With The Opening Chord Progression Of "The Power And The Glory," Which Is Quite Reminiscent Of Tull's "Locomotive Breath." John Fean's Electric Guitar Playing (Especially When In Tandem With Barry Devlin's Bass) Frequently Conjures Up Martin Barre Comparisons. But It Would Be Unfair To Infer That This Album Is Anything Less Than An Original. Along With The Group's First Two Albums (Happy To Meet Sorry To Part And The Tain) Book Of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony Set The Standard For How Next Generation Celtic Rock Albums Would Be Judged. The Degree To Which They Incorporated Fiddles, Concertinas, Accordions, Mandolin, Tin Whistles, And Uilleann Pipes Into A Rock & Roll Band Was Unprecedented In The '70s. This Record Was And Is Their Crowing Achievement.” Dave Sleger, AMG.... more details

Horslips - The Tain The Tain
Prog New - LP SD 7039 Atco
Sealed 1974 Gatefold Original, Custom Promo Song Hype Sticker On Jacket (May Be A White Label Promo). “The Most Ambitious And Successful Of Their Early Albums, Horslips' Most Progressive Creation, And Maybe The Most Successful Rock Concept Album Ever Done. The Tain Is Rock Put Into The Service Of Epic Storytelling (Or Is It The Other Way Around?), Based On The Irish Saga Tain Bo Cuailgne ("The Cattle Raid Of Cooley"), Part Of The Ulster Cycle Of Heroic Tales. It Tells Of War And Carnage Brought About Over The Possession Of A White Bull, Inspired By Events Estimated To Have Taken Place Around 500 B.C. This Is A Long Way From Chuck Berry Or Little Richard, But It Does Rock Hard, And Unlike A Lot Of Progressive Rock, The Tain Displays Considerable Tension And Momentum. Some Listeners Will Detect Modest Similarities To Jethro Tull's Work (Especially On "Charolais"), But There's A Lot Less Meandering Here Than There Is On Any Tull Album, The Flute Playing Is Better, And The Material Moves Forward In A Fairly Nimble Fashion. It Would Be Easy To Praise John Fean's Guitar, But Jim Lockhart's Flute Is Just As Impressive, Charles O'Connor's Violin Playing Is Gorgeous, And Eamonn Carr's Drumming Is Dazzling. And The Vocals Are Quite Good Too, Sweet But Earthy And Honest, And Not Self-Consciously Profound — These Boys Had Ambition, But They Weren't Full Of Themselves Or Too Given To Pretensions.” Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.... more details

Horslips - Book Of Invasions - A Celtic Symphony Book Of Invasions - A Celtic Symphony
Pop New - LP DJLPA 10 DJM
Factory Sealed 1976 Original. "That Which Does Not Kill Me Will Make Me Stronger" Might Well Have Been The Motto That Horslips Adopted After The Release Of The Unfortunate Cup Of Tea, Their 1975 Release. That Album, Generally Regarded As Their Weakest, Somehow Gave Rise To This, Perhaps Their Strongest. Returning To Their Original Formula Of Rock & Roll, Folk, And Prog Rock, Book Of Invasions Rivals 1973's The Tain As Their Most Consistent And Creative, And Established The Band As That Decade's Preeminent Purveyor Of Those Three Entwined Genres. Neither Fairport Convention Nor Steeleye Span Rocked As Convincingly Or Consistently As They Did, And Jethro Tull's Fleeting Folk Fancies Didn't Qualify Them As A Folk-Rock Outfit.
