Max Boyce recalls recording Live At Treorchy

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Welsh entertainer Max Boyce who is now commencing his 2013 tour.

Max rose to prominence in the 1970s with his albums Live At Treorchy and We All Had Doctors' Papers before landing several successful TV series with the BBC.

I recently interviewed Max who was happy to recall those days as well as talk about his new tour. Of particular interest was his recollection of recording Live at Treorchy:

“Of course no-one had heard of me,” recalled Max.“No-one would buy the tickets and they were only 50p. They gave them to the choir and the rugby club, saying, ‘There’s this lad from across the Valleys coming to record an album, will you come?’ They came and that was the audience.”
