The Beatles, Apple Records and Folk Music, 22 Nov 2010
One of the great things that the Beatles did was to establish Apple records. Not only did they record on this label, but they used it to record and promote other British artists such as Cilla Black and Mary Hopkin. This has always been my favourite Mary Hopkin album because it is very poetic and soulful in tone. Mary has a lovely voice which is showcased here on such diverse songs as 'Martha' - 'who tore her life apart and left it for the rats to find ?' and her haunting cover of 'Streets of London'.
If you like poetic lyrics, haunting melodies or simple singing with guitar then this is an album for you.
P.S I live in Australia, and I can tell you that finding and getting this CD was easy and quick.
