In 1981 the band teamed up with the highly popular singing group the Richard Williams Singers and the Risca Male Voice Choir for what was an innovative cross-genre mix of brass and voice released by the Welsh record producers Black Mountain.
Each ensemble performed individual and joint arrangements of songs by the famous Beatles, with the band also performing a medley of their greatest hits arranged by their them Musical Director Albert Meek. Hits which featured the band included 'Penny Lane', 'Because', 'Yesterday', 'When I'm 64', 'Let it Be', 'Your Mother Should Know', 'She's Leaving Home', 'The Long and Winding Road' and the medley 'Beatle Brass'.
As a foretaste to what was to become the band's renowned reputation for inventiveness, the LP was issued in blue vinyl.
The aim of this Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) supported project is to provide an on-line multi-media resource that will celebrate and interpret the historical importance of the social, cultural and musical achievements of Tredegar Town Band over a time-line of the past 170 years – from the earliest reported origins in 1849 to date.
