Kimla Taz




Tracks 1 & 2 recorded at Decca studios, West Hampstead, London in 1968. Produced by Bob McClure and Kimla Taz. Dubbed directly from original acetate disc. Four further songs were recorded at Decca studios with a view to being released on Decca's subsidiary label, Deram. A song called 'The Rebel' was also recorded. This was recorded at Rockfield studios in 1969, composed by Charlie Ward. Sadly, this is not available. Later members included Franco Casiario and Colin Roberts on drums. Kimla Taz originated from Cardiff in 1967. Before these recordings were made at Decca studios in London, they made recordings in Liverpool at CAM studios, but so far, these recordings have not been located. Tracks 1 & 2 composed by Gwilym / Morgan.
