Where It Started
A group of new and old friends on a South Wales Rhymney valley train heading from the village of Pengam to the nation's capital Cardiff. The topic of Mike's acoustic guitar playing came up in the conversation and Paul remarked that he wrote poetry and lyrics and maybe they should get together sometime.
The two exchanged material. Mike provide a cassette of two original acoustic songs The Sea and The Answer To Our Love. Paul provided a few poems and lyrics and a cassette with melodies. Mike was struck by Paul's ability to produce lyrics along with an accompanying melody, without the aid of any musical instrument. Paul rang Mike to say that he really liked the style of the two songs and was excited about what they could do together.
So started the decades-long musical journey of Mike Davies and Paul Ivor Jones.
It was 1982.
