I bought this CD to go with other recent re releases of Horslips albums. The Horslips albums have had a variety of re issues over the years but these ones show how it should be done. The tracks have been remastered at Abbey Road and the sound is first class. Even better what set these reissues apart is the sheer quality of the packaging. They are a joy to behold. They are basically original album replicas printed and prepared to the highest quality. The CD itself has a label derived from the original LP label. The cover and loose booklet are hexagonally cut as the original sleeve; even the lattice work of the original cover is carefully cut. The picture on Amazon does not do this justice. The music is great, but listening to is enhanced by being able to hold the cover. Make sure you get the IML releases.

If more CDs were produced like this people would have more reason to by the physical article rather than downloads. It quite took me back to the joys of holding my original LP covers. You either understand that or think I am barmy, but I am happy.

Recorded during spring and summer of 1972 in Co. Tipperary, using the Rolling Stones mobile, this fabulous album deserves every accolade in the book. Comparatively few recordings deserve to be called seminal. This is one that does! On it you will hear Messrs O'Connor, Fean, Devlin, Carr and Lockhart create what we now know as Celtic Rock. Listen as they seamlessly combine ceili, folk, country, blues, rock, even reggae, into an irresistible musical mixture that is quite unique.

When I first heard Happy to Meet almost forty years ago I began a love affair with the album that has lasted throughout my life. And no wonder! From the concertina, tin whistle and bodhran-driven ceili music of opener Happy to Meet, through the dreamy organ and keyboard-driven psychedelia of Hall of Mirrors, to the elegaic Clergy's Lamentation, the reggae-driven Bratach Bán, the country stylings of The Shamrock Shore, and the amazing folk-rock masterpiece that is Furniture, it is simply masterful. On the latter track particularly, everything fuses together in one of the most marvellous five minutes of music you could ever wish to hear, from Barry Devlin's vocals to Jim Lockhart's flute, uileann pipes, and organ fills, Charles O'Connor's elegantly delicate acoustic picking, Johnny Fean's blistering lead guitar and Eamonn Carr's fabulously rock solid drumming.

If you are new to Horslips and wonder what all the fuss is about, buy this album and hear the reason why! And if you have always been a fan, treat yourself to this superbly remastered, extended version of the album, and remind yourself of why you became a fan in the first place.

Still going strong today, and still as great as ever, this is where the Horslips story began.

Thank you gentlemen!

Format: Audio CD
When England's Fairport Convention recorded "A Sailor's Life" for inclusion on their "Unhalfbricking:" album (released July 1969) - its eleven-minutes-plus mixed English Folk Tradition with Rock elements and an Indian backbeat and drone - thereby creating overnight what many now call the genre of 'Folk Rock'. The Fairports went on to more Folk-Rock greatness with "Liege & Lief" in December of that eventful year - and even better with the offshoot group Fotheringay in June 1970.

Ireland on the other hand - even with its long history of Folk tradition now running alongside a growing adoration of all things Rock - seemed to take its sweet time mixing the pair. That is until HORSLIPS came along. Their January 1973 self-financed debut album "Happy To Meet, Sorry To Part" on Oats Records MOO 3 did just that - and in grand style. I've still got my Irish-pressed original vinyl LP with its 'Emma Music' and 'Made In Ireland' credits on the labels. It was recorded November 1972 in Ireland by Alan O'Duffy on the Rolling Stones Mobile and distributed by RCA in the UK/Atlantic Records in the States (Atlantic SD 7030). But a few words first about the original's famously elaborate artwork...

Designed by the band's Fiddle player Charles O'Connor (`he cost us a fortune') and printed by Irish Silk Screen Ltd - the sleeve was cut in an Octagonal shape to ape his small and delicate hand-played instrument - an Irish Concertina (it's pictured by his feet on his photograph page).

The inception of this Celtic Rock Band is based mostly on the Traditional side of the Music...but do not let that sway your Decision. This disc will have your toes tapping, and sitting back, with eyes closed, letting the Celtic Melodies wash over you! Horslips progressed into a Major Rock Arena Act, and is STILL playing....THIS album lets you 'in' on their BIRTH, which you will be "Happy to Meet" and oh so "Sorry to Part"!!! BUY IT!!!

Now this vinyl got a thrashing in a student flat in Remuera, Auckland I lived in in the 1970s. Someone who liked the Steeleye Span glam transition ("Commoners Crown" vintage) added "Happy to Meet" to the mix. In the time it was unusual as it contained elements of traditional Irish folk with electronica and liberal dashes of quirk and whimsey tin whistle style. So when I saw this advertised on CD I thought it an opportunity to see whether it rode the mists of time from the Shamrock Shore to poor old Geordie's ears in 2014. First off, the bonus tracks are live and are a good indicator of the complexity of studio multi mixes transitioning into live settings-they add rather than detract. But the meat of the original album still makes a passable meal and still has enough in it to engage. Tir Na Nog it is not. Cover is a bit naff, mine falls apart every time you open it. A small quibble is claiming "Dance to Yer Daddy" as a Horslips song-I think not lads-it were in Geordie Land long before you was little fishes heading out of yer daddies rhythm stick. But a commendable 4/5.
