La Grande Cornouaillaise LP (Digital)

Available by download only


La Grande Cornouaillaise was recorded by Brenda for the French market in 1980, as her career on the continent was going stellar. It was produced by Burlington Records in Hitchin in Hertfordshire, number BURL007, and is a 33rpm LP. The guitarist was Dave Penhale - still playing and living (and painting!) in Cornwall.


The lyrics are printed on the back of the cover, in full, and are in English/Cornish and French, as appropriate.


The condition of these is good, believed unused, with slight fading on the cover edges and the odd light corner crease, but no damage.

Rarity: Uncommon, as with most Burlington albums.
