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.
