Arbennig !

I have chosen to write this review in English rather than my mother tongue of Cymraeg ( Welsh ) as most Welsh speaking people will know all about Meic Stevens and in particular this album, Y Baledi " Dim ond Cysgodion" ( The Ballads , Only Shadows ).This guy is often referred to as the Bob Dylan of Wales but his talents far exceed Dylan for me. His guitar playing in particular is much more refined than Dylan and he has as unique a tone in his voice. You really don't have to understand the words to feel the beauty in this album and I would recommend it to anyone who has an ear for good quality acoustic folk music. Meic is an absolute legend in Wales. Give this a listen and you will see why. This guy has also produced English language albums in the past, most notably Outlander which was produced when Meic was signed up by Warner Brothers in the height of the late 60s folk phenomenon. That album is also exceptional but his finest work is in his native language. He knew this himself and went back to doing what he does best and that was the story behind Dim ond Cysgodion. Buy it and you will not be disappointed.

He was discovered by Jimmy Saville, a DJ who saw Stevens (from Solva, on the West Coast of Wales) performing at the Manchester University folk club in 1965. This discovery...
