I didn't hear the album, but I remember the singles. Faye was my favourite too actually when I was younger, but with time i've grown to love Claire's voice the most. All the girls from the group are great though. "Heartbeat/Tragedy" was the first cassette I ever bought, and "Step One" was the first cd I owned. I still have it today but in a very worn condition though from how much I played it when I was a child:lol:

Even over YVA albums?:eek: I will have to check it out. It's on Spotify so I can hear it later. Right now i'm listening to "Step One". Bringing back many memories. I love the album tracks "Back To You", "Love U More" and "This Heart Will Love Again". It's been over a decade since I last heard them. I'm feeling really nostalgic for this kind of pop at the moment. I want to listen to some songs from "Buzz" next. That's a great album too. And maybe i'll then play the Scooch albumxheart

Some years ago in pre-Lithuanian era it was my all-time favourite album.
Maybe one day I will compile my top 100 favourite albums list (exclude retro classic such as Twiggy, Lynsey De Paul, ABBA, Blondie e.t.c)
Possible time period : from 1994 to 2012.

Re: WALES / CYMRU ♣ WV 85 ♣ ???

:wale: WV Wales presents :wale:

CALAN
"Tale of Two Dragons / Chwedl y Ddwy Ddraig"





Fiddles, guitar, accordion, bagpipes and step dancing explode into life as Calan perform songs and tunes from their album "Dinas." Infectious guitar rhythms and high voltage routines give way to beautiful and haunting songs as they begin touring throughout 2015 to celebrate their latest release. Amongst the traditional Welsh melodies and brand new original material, they breathe fire into the folk tale of Merlin and The Two Dragons: A song to be released as a single in March that tells the story of why there is a dragon on the Welsh flag.

The title Dinas is taken from the name Dinas Emrys, a mountain in Gwynedd, North Wales. During the 5th century it is believed two dragons once slept within the mountain hidden in the depths of a secret lake. During the night the dragons would awake and fight making the ground shake and tremor. When the Celtic king Vortigern attempted to build a castle on the hill in the 5th century the stones and walls were repeatedly shaken to the ground. The legend says the problem was solved by a nine year old boy gifted with magic. His name was Merlin and Wales had found a great magician and the emblem for its flag.

In 1945 the site was excavated by archaeologists who discovered a lake and the ruins of a fortress dating to Vortigern’s time. The walls showed signs of having been rebuilt several times. So be careful where you tread…

And there it is, the last Welsh entry under my five-edition reign (phew!) and the second one under my joint reign with the Blackadder. Hope you like our PQ entry and see ya in the final! xcheer

Re: WALES / CYMRU ♣ WV 85 ♣ CALAN - TALE OF TWO DRAGONS / CHWEDL Y DDWY DDRAIG (PQ)

And now the Princess of Wales has concluded her five-edition reign with a blast, leaving a very good impression on her part. The Welsh key of leadership has now passed on to the Prince Blackadder, and the Damsel has headed off to a very distant land she calls her Asian neighbour, Indonesia.

This is her last post in Welsh thread. Diolch yn fawr a hwyl! Now signing off xwave
