Issued in 1971, this is Mary Hopkin's coming-of-age collection, packed with socially-conscious, lyrically-aware anthems from the cream of the era's folk protagonists: Ralph McTell, Gallagher & Lyle, Tom Paxton, Cat Stevens, Harvey Andrews and the relatively unknown Liz Thorsen who wrote the collection’s title songs, ‘Earth Song’ and ‘Ocean Song’. Mary defines her art on this album, co-ordinated by legendary producer and Mary's husband-to-be at the time, Tony Visconti.
This Remastered CD includes three Bonus Tracks, all produced by Tony Visconti:
• ‘Kew Gardens’ / 1971 B-side to ‘Let My Name Be Sorrow’
• ‘When I Am Old One Day’ / from the Earth Song / Ocean Song sessions
• ‘Let My Name Be Sorrow’ / Mary’s penultimate single for Apple Records, issued in 1971
