Dancehall Sweethearts is the name of the third studio album by Irish rock band Horslips. Recorded during the World Cup Finalsthe songs were loosely based on the travels of the famed 18th century blind harper, Turlough O' Carolan. The title and cover were chosen by the band in reaction to the record company's worry that an album about a deceased blind Irish harper would not sell in great quantities.
For this album, the addition of brass sections added a new element to Horslips' sound, as songs like Nighttown Boy and Sunburst displayed elements of blues which were new to Horslips' Celtic Rock sound.
Once again, traditional jigs and reels were incorporated into Horslips' songs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article does not cite any sources.
