Now That’s What I Call Tynwald….With Bonus Tracks

Musical future: Tynwald Hill

So popular has Now That’s What I Call Tynwald proven, it is being reissued with bonus tracks.

Hot on the heels of the success of Samantha Barks and Davy Knowles, the powers that be in the Manx parliament decided to release their own album.

It was a combination of cover versions, remixes and bad puns and the public clamour for more has led to this Special Edition with extra tracks, some taking a retro look back at happier times when the Manx economy wasn’t in quite such a megamix.
