About: price of coal
My grandad worked in gresford colliery north wales in 1932 but luckily survived until 1985 just 3 months before I was born it killed him In the end 😭
Re the wrong date for senghenydd, that was the date given to me by a miner friend from Wales when I wrote the song..I did the demo and sent it to David. A few days later I discovered the mistake and called David and gave him the correct date He was so pleased with the song he had already recorded it but said he would re record it with the correct date as soon as he came back from his holiday in the Teneriffe.
Sadly he died there and we lost a great man and his wonderful voice. He did such a great job with the song that it was decided to release the song even though it had the wrong date so his multitude of fans could enjoy it Of the many other versions of the song by other artists the date is corrected J C
Can't believe the date is wrong re:Senghenydd, it was 1913, not 1909
God bless miners the world over
Heart breaking , god bless you all xxx
