`Now And Then', features three Mary Hopkin originals as well as songs from legendary names including Bert Jansch, Tom Paxton, Jim Croce and John Kongos. Some of the tracks have been brought bang up to date with the use of modern technology and they sound amazing...

I acquired this CD by accident - I ordered 'Valentine' through Mary Hopkin Music and they sent me this one instead, but I've got few regrets about the decision to hold on to it. This is mostly delightful stuff, with four tracks in the 'outstanding' category - the opener 'Take Me Back' , the self-penned tracks 'Tell Me Now' and 'What will be' and the (very) minor hit, track 'If you love me', with its Edith-Piaf feel. There are a half a dozen other good tracks on here too.
I don't think the piano accompanied 'When he shines' suits her voice particularly, although it may just be that I quite like and am used to the Sheena Easton version. The two country and western stye tracks are not particularly to my taste either and, while Mary's voice can carry almost anything, three verses of a twee arrangement of 'happy birthday' is really taking things a bit too far and someone should have used their (her) editorial veto on this one. At least it's the last track and there's always the 'skip' button.
Now for anoth er attempt to buy 'Valentine'...
