Released in 2010 to mark the iconic, eclectic, eternally underground, progressive Irish folk-rock outfit’s return to the stage after 29 years, the two-disc Treasury: The Very Best of Horslips
featured a lovingly detailed, 24-page booklet and 34 tracks, handpicked by the members themselves. It’s a great cross-section of music, allowing room for tracks from all of the band’s releases. From the lovely, pastoral sounds of Drive the Cold Winter Away
, to the elegiac and bombastic 1976 masterpiece Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony
lives up to its name, providing a refuge for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
