Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

Horslips: Happy to Meet… Sorry to Part

The Jig Is Up at Tuna Melt!

Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, too!

Horslips was, if not THE, one of The Original Celtic Rock bands, coming together in Dublin in 1970. They originally got together as a fake band for a Harp Lager commercial and, since they had gone to the trouble of recruiting a keyboard player for the ad, decided they might as well make a go of it, taking the name "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." They later modified the name, via a spoonerism, into "The Four Poxmen on The Horslypse" which was eventually shortened to Horslypse and, then, Horslips.

"Happy to Meet… Sorry to Part" was their first full length album, recorded and released in1972. It consists mostly of traditional Irish melodies and was the fastest selling album in Ireland for 8 years.

Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span, who both did (and continue to do) folk-rock from all over the British Aisles were earlier; Fairport is celebrating its 41st anniversary this year.
