Trevor's Songs

Singing silly songs was a habit of Rob's dad, Trevor.  He was a founder member of Ystrad Mynach Male Voice Choir and, as one might expect in South Wales, singing was common in social gatherings (specifically at the pub after whatever).  A few years before he died, back in the late 80's, Rob asked him to record for posterity all the songs he would usually sing at home.  The old Boots-brand cassette he used was already 20 years old at this point, but it has survived another 25 years to be transferred to disk.  Rob's tried to process the recordings to remove some of the tape hiss but they remain somewhat bassy.

Anyhow, for posterity, here are all the songs from the tape in MP3 format.  Just a reminder of the copyright notice on the opening page of this web-site - if you would like to use any material here, you must ask us first. Thanks.
