Gwavas Lake LP
  • Gwavas Lake LP


    So many of the songs written for Brenda by Richard Gendall were about boats, the sea and fishing, and the fishing industry is such an important one in Cornwall, that Brenda decided to produce an album exclusively with 'Cornish Songs of the Sea'.  


    By this time she had sung with many Cornish choirs and bands, and her great friends in Four Lanes Male Voice Choir feature on this album, together with Richard Gendall and Dave Penhale. The lyrics are printed on the cover sleeve at the back, and the cover photo is the famous painting, 'Fish Sale on a Cornish Beach', by Newlyn artist, Stanhope Forbes.

      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.
