Sleeve Notes

DAFYDD IWAN is the newest and most original discovery in Welsh folk singing. This is his first record. Son of a well-known minister of Llanuwchllyn in the mountains of Meirionnydd, now an architecture student in Cardiff, he has created a tremendous following, largely as star of the TWW daily programme Y Dydd. Perhaps the first modern Welsh language singer to become a teenage idol, he is also a poet, writer and cartoonist; and like Bob Dylan and Donovan, whom he greatly admires, he writes his own lyrics and music.

Dafydd Iwan sings of love — and he sings of Wales. This record shows why he embodies the spirit of a new generation, dedicated to fight for the language and the land we love, for a free Wales.

EDWARD MORRIS JONES, another young patriot-singer who is popular on radio and television, is also from Llanuwchllyn. Son of a farmer, intends to teach in Glamorgan. On this record he plays a 12-string guitar, and joins in the vocal of Wyt ti'n Cofio?

Sleeve Notes

This is the third record by Dafydd Iwan, the folk singer from Merioneth and Carmarthenshire who is at present a student of architecture in Cardiff.

Recently, he said to me "Don't say I come from the North or South because I feel just as much at home by the Black Mountain or the Aran. At the moment I live at Gwyddgrug." He is, above all, a son of Wales.

His first two records were immediate successes and this, his third, has been eagerly awaited. On this record, Dafydd sings of love and patriotism, old and new, in serious and light vein. Two of the songs display the genuine patriotic sentiment which has brought a note of stirring nationalism back to Welsh folk singing.

Sleeve Notes

On this record, his fifth E.P., Dafydd Iwan sings his light-hearted "School Song" which cleverly underlines the anomaly of the situation when a child who speaks Welsh at home, who plays, loves and worships in Welsh receives his education in English. If ever there was a campaign song for Welsh language schools, this is it!

"Chwarae A 'Nghalon" is a free adaptation of the folk song "The Roving Kind", and "Trwy'r Drysni A'r Anialwch" is a typical Welsh folk love-song. "Pan Glywaf Gan Y Clychau" is a plaintive love-song written and composed by Dafydd himself.

We have pleasure in introducing you to this further collection of folk songs sung in the homely and inimitable style of Dafydd Iwan.
