Re-issue of very rare Welsh language folk pop album by Eleri Llwyd, one of Wales' most iconic female voices. Original copies sell for £100 on ebay. Eleri Llwyd was featured on the Welsh Rare Beat compilation curated by Gruff Rhys and Andy Votel. Limited run of the re-issue - 250 copies and all numbered.

Eleri Llwyd, a prominent member of the early 1970's Welsh language politically driven pop group 'Y Chwyldro' and psych influenced group 'Y Nhw', made a name for herself as a soloist in 1971 when she released her first 7'' Vinyl EP with prolific record label 'Sain'. In Gruff Rhys' words, she "blazed a versatile path through popular song" and by 1977, Eleri had released her first album, here re-issued. This album features Eleri's stunning voice in collaboration with musicians Gruff Rhys described as "the cream of Sain's progressive rock musicians, creating a short lived yet unique progressive folk-opera-disco movement".
