The Táin is an album by Irish rock band Horslips. Their second studio album, it was Horslip's first attempt at making a concept album, an idea they would return to in 1976 with The Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony. The Táin was based on the Táin Bó Cúailnge (The Cattle Raid of Cooley), one of the most infamous legends of Early Irish literature, dealing with the war between Ulster and Connacht over a prize bull. The Man Who Built America. Short Stories/Tall Tales.

The Book of Invasions: A Celtic Symphony is the sixth album by the Irish Celtic rock band Horslips. It was a concept album based on an adaptation of Irish legends built into a complex story. It is named for the Lebor Gabála Érenn, a book of Irish mythology known as The Book of Invasions in English. Released in 1976, it is usually considered their best work.

This is the second Horslips album I had bought when it came out in '78; in the . their albums were not easy to find and only their recent ones had even been distributed on domestic labels. For an album of the later 70s that shows no new-wave/punk imitation, that eschews the pomp of prog-rock and the often bombastic concept album trappings that doomed many efforts by those popular bands favored on classic rock radio in the States then, this is a representative LP that has not become too dated for my ears nearly three decades.

Recorded and mixed at Advision, October 1978 "T" in runouts denotes a Columbia Records Pressing Plant, Terre Haute pressing.

Redirected from The Man Who Built America). Horslips are an Irish Celtic rock band that compose, arrange and perform songs frequently inspired by traditional Irish airs, jigs and reels. The group are regarded as 'founding fathers of Celtic rock' for their fusion of traditional Irish music with rock music and went on to inspire many local and international acts. They formed in 1970 and 'retired' in 1980 for an extended period

Although Lock didn't think much of "The Man Who Built America", the song is a worthy effort by arguably the most original band ever to come out of Ireland, and probably a bit too heavy on imagery for the average beer swilling music journalist. The song is not about a man but about a type of man. The title track of the band's 1979 album is explained in considerable depth on The Annotated Horslips Lyrics Pages. The single was backed by "Long Weekend". More songs from Horslips.
