5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Delicious: Mary's Best Apple Recording, 31 Oct 2010
This review is from: Earth Song / Ocean Song (Audio CD)
This is Mary's highly acclaimed but much overlooked 1971 follow up to her Apple Records debut 'Postcard' and for me stands head and shoulders above its predecessor.

The album, produced by her then husband Tony Visconti, boasts some of the best singer songwriters of the day, including Ralph McTell, Cat Stevens and Gallagher & Lyle. Mary's interpretations of Ralph's 'Silver Birch & Weeping Willow' and bonus cut `Kew Gardens' are exquisite. The combination of Mary's pure voice and acoustic arrangements is close to perfection.

If you liked the hits 'Those Were The Days' or 'Think About Your Children' then you will love this album which shows there is definitely "something about Mary ......."

The album is nicely packaged with original artwork and extensive sleeve notes and a welcome taster for Mary's first recording of new material in over 20 years, called `You Look Familiar', which has just been released on MHM records. I'm pleased to say she is sounding better than ever and keeping things bang up to date with this long overdue album produced by her son Morgan Visconti.
