:: Recording Notes ::
0 - Lomax gives the date of T3358 as December 15, 1953, and notes that it was recorded in London. This location, however, is highly unlikely, given the improbability of Jack Rowlands traveling to London. This and the other three tracks from this tape, then, have been included with the other Rowlands recordings, at the Treorchy Miners' Club, on the December 8 date. [Source: Editor]
