Memorable Data: Robin Williamson – A 1984 Letter Concerning Mabiongi & Other Works

Filed under: Memorable Data, Robin Williamson
Hi to all… I would like to share with you this letter by Robin Williamson which was part of our 1984 mailing. I decided to post it not only because it has comments regarding the Mabinogi (it is to note that he employed keyboard layers also for The Dragon Has Two Tongues cuiously related to Wales too!), but also to show up his vast work releases of those days. Undoubtedly,Robin has always been a constant composer and researcher indeed.
