These songs are from our first two albums, which are no longer in print and were only released on cassette. We feel it is important to make these songs available to our new fans who are too young to have heard them in their original format, and our long-time fans who have played out the cassette tapes that they were released on.
HELTER CELTIC features the 12 songs from the Dust Rhinos original album. Recorded in two furious days, the songs reflect the band's busking roots with high energy traditional Irish song.
ON A RAMPAGE saw the addition of drums, electric instruments and the first steps towards defining a Celtic rock sound that would become the Dust Rhinos that you know and love today. ON A RAMPAGE also set the Dust Rhinos on the path of writing their own songs while still maintaining a Celtic feel. It also features the first "Celtified" rock song that the Dust Rhinos are now well known for - a thundering cover of A Horse With No Name.
HELTER CELTIC and ON A RAMPAGE - the Dust Rhinos PREHISTORIC roots of butt kickin' Celtic Rock!
