Creative Industries minister Nigel Adams has chosen one album from the last seven decades to display in his ministerial office.
Adams chose to show his support for the UK music industry by showcasing some of the best of British talent in his office at the Department of Digital, Media, Culture and Sport (DCMS) and the albums were donated by the BPI.
