  • Notes:
    • Disc A Dawn (Disc & Talent) was a weekly Welsh pop TV show, broadcast by the BBC in the late 60's & early 70's.
    • To my knowledge these are unique live tracks from the show.
    • The songs "Dewch Gydani" & "Gwalia", by The Hennessys, and "Dos Fanwylyd", by Dafydd Iwan, do not appear on any other releases that I have found.

Notes

The Music, the Memories, the Magic of Wales on one great CD. An ideal souvenir album.

Wales is a nation of many talents, and the Welsh language — one of the oldest living languages in Europe — has been the vehicle of poetry and song for over 16 centuries. Welsh male choirs and harmony singing are known all over the world, but Wales also has a wealth of solo singers and a long tradition of folk songs.

This collection has been carefully selected from twenty of the best albums ever recorded in Wales to give as full a picture as possible of Welsh singing in its glorious variety.

Wherever you are, sit back and listen to the music of Wales!
