FlinterFile: Mary Hopkin- Goodbye

The record label Apple, owned by the Beatles, found in Mary Hopkin one of their first hit artists.She had already had a hit with Those Were The Days and now needed a follow-up song. Paul McCartney wrote this song in great hurry for her, recorded a demo version and she recorded it. During the recording of this song in other languages, she met her future husband Tony Visconti (the producer of a lot of David Bowie albums). The B-side would also become a hit, causing it to be one of the first double A-side singles released on the Apple label. It was number 13 in the US, number 2 in the UK and made number 1 in the Netherlands in 1969. Enjoy
