Boy Jan, Cornishman LP
  • Boy Jan, Cornishman LP


    Boy Jan Cornishman, one of Brenda's best albums, in my view. Produced by Burlington Records of Hitchin in Hertfordshire in 1980, with guitarist Dave Penhale and the legendary songwriter Richard Gendall (10 of the 13 songs on the album were written by Richard).

    This is a 33rpm LP, and the lyrics are printed on the back cover (in very tiny print!).

    The front cover features an image for each track - and yes, that is me at bottom left, and my son Davy at bottom right - Boy Jan at top left is a Cornish miner.

    The condition is generally good; may be slight fading on the cover edges and the odd light corner crease, sticker, small tear etc.

    Rarity: Uncommon.

      As all the albums I am offering for sale are vintage, these are not factory new copies... although we believe most are unlikely to have been used. We do check for any obvious signs of damage, but the LPs are not individually photographed, and you may find light signs of cosmetic wear etc.

      If you just want to return the item as you are unhappy with minor wear to the sleeve etc, we will refund on receipt of the returned item, but the postage both ways must be at your own expense. 

      If however, you are unhappy with your purchase as you have found unacceptable damage which mars your listening pleasure, we will refund you in full, including return postage, once we have received the item back and had a chance to examine it.
