Originally released in December 1972, "Happy To Meet Sorry To Part" kick-started a new era in the
evolution of Irish music, connecting the traditional elements of the past with the progressive rock
experimentations of the future. The album not only introduced a new band (and a new kind of band
at that) but also an entirely new genre known as Celtic Rock. Horslips dared to tamper with traditional
Irish tunes and instrumentation and in so doing electrified a generation of Irish youths into frenzied and
life-long loyalty. Their legacy, cemented by the 11 albums that followed their legendary debut,
continues to have a profound influence on those with even a passing interest in Irish music or
contemporary rock or folk or prog for that matter. The year 2012 sees the 40th anniversary of the
release of "Happy To Meet Sorry To Part" and to mark this event a special edition CD version of the
album is to be released. The bespoke commissioned pressing replicates the original vinyl release in
minute detail including the impressive concertina shaped cut and multi-page booklet with all the
original artwork. Also included are 5 extra tracks amounting to over 30 minutes of bonus material
recorded live in Berlin, 1976.
