Very Limited 40thYear Reissue Anniversary Edition / Heavyweight 180g Vinyl / Eco Friendly Vinyl Manufactured CO2 (e) Neutral / Includes bonus CD’s – ‘Rhwng Hwyl a Thaith (Dafydd Iwan & Ar Log) + Yma o Hyd Cwpan y Byd single.
This is the first in a new series by Sain of re-issues of great albums on vinyl, and what better way to start than a re-release – exactly 40 years after the original release – of the Dafydd Iwan/Ar Log ‘Yma o Hyd’ album. It also coincides with Dafydd’s 80th birthday, making this a double celebration. The special edition, limited in number, will also include a CD of the 1982 album ‘Rhwng Hwyl a Thaith’ and the CD single ‘Yma o Hyd’ featuring The Red Wall. The release date is November 10th, when Dafydd will feature in the first of three gigs at Galeri Caernarfon with special guests.
40 years after it first saw daylight, ‘Yma o Hyd’ has become Wales’ second national anthem, and the last year and a half has seen it attain new heights of popularity. In Dafydd’s own words: “It all started at the Austria game in March 2022, when The Red Wall propelled the song onto the world stage. After the second performance before and after the Ukraine match, the song was on its way to the World Cup as the Welsh Team’s official anthem. But what has happened since is even more significant, with people all over Wales singing the song, and people from other countries seeing Wales on the world stage.”
There are more classic albums from the Sain archive to appear in this series, and we look forward to delving into our vast treasury of albums for our next re-issue on vinyl.
