ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Country Mile Records are proud to release a compilation of some of South Wales’ finest talent covering songs by legendary Newport born singer/songwriter Jon Langford (The Mekons, Waco Brothers, The Three Johns).

Included are contributions from members of The Darling Buds (on “Millionaire”), finalists in the BBC Young Folk Awards 2008 – One String Loose (“Nashville Radio”), Welsh melodeon player Guto Dafis (“Pill Sailor”) and Cardiff based folk singer, Charlotte Greig as part of the Brynhyfrd Road Folk Arkestra with their unreleased Langford composition “Llamas in Llanaraven” .

Jon supported the project from the outset and provided the cover art for the CD (Jon is celebrated artist as well as a musician) and despite now residing in Chicago, visits South Wales regularly.

A very nice collection
Considering the scope of Langford's songwriting, this collection hangs together very nicely. The selections range from rousing to heartbreaking, and the overall effect is to present both the songs and the performances to their best advantage. Highly recommended.
