There is a 1994 release on ITunes -album Broc Mor - not in Discogs.


Email from Sain Records below gives the translator.

Hi David,


I'm afraid I cannot tell you who translated "Silver threads..." as the data is located in a file at work, and has not yet been put on our database


Gwyneth Parry was the translator of "Take me hom..."


With apologies,


Rhian Eleri

Nice detective work. Two follow-up questions, perhaps for you to put back to Rhian:

1. Any more details about the translator Gwyneth Parry.

2. iTunes wasn't around in 1994. So either there was an earlier CD or cassette version released in 1994 or iTunes has it wrong. Again, could you find out?

This would be a good case for you to try out in the test database. Have you had a go yet?

Nothing about Gwyneth Parry but I suspect she also translated Silver Threads and I will ash Rhian when he returns to the office.


Not an ITunes release but referenced by ITunes. Screenshot attached.

Thanks. Let me know what Rhian says.

Indeed. So we need to find the original 1994 release, if indeed there was a commercial release then. Another one for Rhian?

You could give this a go on the test database in the meantime?

Confirmatory reply from Rhian herewith. A cassette release.


Hi Dave,


The cassette was indeed released in 1994

The cassette was indeed released in 1994.

Thought so and good to know. So next we need the cover art and cat number for the cassette release.

Plus still missing info about the translator.

Sain Records now back in the office two days a week. I have asked for information on Gwyneth Parry which she is prepared to share.
