Despite a few technical hitches I really enjoyed playing with records at the Glynn Vivian for the End of Empire preview.  My audio recorder failed unfortunately so I decided to continue working with the selection of records in the studio and post some recordings of them as I go.  This first mix from the studio uses 3 Swansea based Welsh Teledisc records and ‘Freedom Fanfare’ by the Band of the Nigeria Police, recorded to celebrate Nigerian independence.

Time wasn’t on my side and I didn’t get to play a number of things that I’d hoped, one was this Vistasound postcard record with a view of Snowdon from Llyn Llydaw.

Vistasound Postcard Record - There'll be a welcome in the valley

On the balcony above where I was situated in the atrium is a series of landscape paintings by Sir Kyffin Williams, including views of Snowdon.  I had planned to play this on a portable record player with them, here it is playing in the studio instead..
