Mary Hopkin

Hi Ken,

I've always loved the 2 Mary Hopkin albums on Apple Records that you worked on (1969's "Postcard" and 1971's "Earth Song, Ocean Song").
Are there any recollections or stories from those sessions that you could share with us?

The mixing job you did on the latter album is one of my all-time favorites! Very spacious - yet warm and intimate. Not an easy trick to do.
Best of all it doesn't sound dated - unlike many other folk albums from that era.

Thank you for taking the time to chat with us!
