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 11albums 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 40th anniversary of the release of Happy To Meet Sorry To Part was marked by this special edition CD version of the album. 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.
