Another of Max Boyce's irreverent albums. Contains his gentle Welsh rugby humour, observations on life in Wales, some funny and some touching,and also reminders of the hard life of the miners and how the industry has left such a deep impression on the Welsh.

This album really sums up the Welsh personality and gives a sence of belonging to the listner. It is a mixture of rugby based humour and heart stirring welsh songs with a traditional emphasis projected. It is a cracking album and is a reflection of a friendly, welcoming rugby mad nation that love their music and a humerous craic. A very valued neccesity for any true Welsh rugby fan. Dai Iaun

This CD made for spectacular listening, i was in Treorchy on the night this was recorded and listening to it again all these years later bought back some memories. This is welsh humour at it's best and would probably be lost on anyone else, but for the pure parody of the songs it's really worth a listen.

I purchased this CD for my Dad some years ago as he'd owned the vinyl album back in the early 70s when it was first issued. Listening to it one day when at home, I found I enjoyed the album enormously - I knew it would be good to hear it again (I'm one of those people who is unafraid of nostalgia, I think it's a healthy emotion rather than a self-denying one), but I was surprised by how much impact the recording had upon me.

Let me be direct: I am NOT a typical Welshman...or perhaps I should say, I don't fit the clichéd idea of what a Welshman is. I can't stand rugby, hate bad beer, am not very interested in choral singing and so on. I am, however, the grandson of two miners, I was born left wing and I used to be able to sing pretty well. When I was growing up, I found the traditional idea of Welsh identity and culture ever more stultifying the older I got - I despised the way that rugby was more important in my school than academic achievement or artistic ability and being of a creative bent, I rebelled against the clichés of Welshness. Rugby in particular is like a religion in Wales and to be disinterested in it is almost a sin - and I still find this attitude amongst my countrymen irritating in the extreme. I also hated the small-mindedness of many people in Wales regarding culture - you could be the greatest artists in the world, but unless you tackled subjects that fit the bill of 'Welshness', you'd get little or no attention. For example, the greatest living Welshman to me is John Cale (founder member of the Velvet Underground) but instead of being a household name in Wales, most Cymric people have never heard of him.

With this in mind, you'd think Max Boyce would not appeal to me.

I enjoy a bit of Max Boyce - and this is a live album, a recording made of a show he did at Treorchy.

Boyce's humor is not to everyone's liking - but if you're a fan then you'll probably enjoy this.

As it's a live recording, the audio is not perfect - yet it is still well done. And you get to hear the laughter of the audience.

Given that it's now over 30 years old, the content of this recording is now somewhat dated. Many people simply won't get the jokes.

Yet, I found it fun and humorous.

...and I'm not Welsh. It does help though if you are familiar with the Wales of the 1970/80's
