Barod Am Roc 1 LP 1984
Label: Sain #: SAIN 1311H Country: Wales
Info: Nothing exclusive, but for a long time I was not aware of the RHIANNON TOMOS single so I figure I'll include this album if only to set the record straight. Despite being released in 1984 the songs were recorded as early as 1971.

Side A:
1. CRYS - Barod Am Roc
  Catchy and upbeat NWOBHM with a surprisingly American feel.
2. AIL SYMUDIAD - Geiriau
  Folk.
3. HUW JONES - Adfail
  Quite enjoyable early 70s rock.
4. HERGEST - Ugain Mlynedd Yn l
  Mellow folk rock with popular Welsh rocker Derec Brown on guitar.
5. ENDAF EMLYN - Macrall (Wedi Ffrio)
  Folk.
6. GERAINT JARMAN A'R CYNGANEDDWYR - Methu Dal Y Pwysa
  Reggae with elements of progressive rock.

Side B:
1. CRYSBAS - Draenog Marw
  70s rock.
2. ANGYLION STANLI - Carol
  Soft rock.
3. RHIANNON TOMOS A'R BAND - Cwm Hiraeth
  Would be a great NWOBHM tune if it weren't for that weird disco break in the middle. Still, Rhiannon's voice is as powerful as ever. This was released as a single in 1980, before her stint with DIAWLED.

  Folk.
5. BRN - Tocyn
  Rock and roll.
6. Y TRWYNAU COCH - Niggers Cymraeg
