This is tremendous, and I am indebted to Taff for posting it. Thank you kind sir!

Sideways To The Sun has always been one of my top 5 Horslips tracks. It captures perfectly the sense of magic and mysticism at the heart of so many of the heroic legends. When I hear it I can easily imagine myself somewhere in the Boyne Valley over a thousand years ago listening to,and learning from, an ancient, bearded, hooded druidic figure.

Back to the video clip. It shows once again the many layers and different dimensions in Horslips music. I have always been a little bit frustrated when I hear the band being classified as Celtic Rock. Of course they were THE Celtic Rock pioneers. But they were an awful lot more too. Sideways To The Sun can be considered as a kind of Celtic Folk Blues. Written in Ireland it may be, but it would not be out of place if played in the Mississippi Delta.

They would an' all Don. I like your idea. And why not! A lot of the same kind of mystique in The Delta as in the beautiful Boyne Valley.

Muscle Shoals shares in that mystique and the local indigenous peoples have stories about the singing river. Some have said the spirits have helped to make Muschle Shoals Recording Studio's what they are, by imbuing those who work there with that same spirit.
