I think the 60s and folk music are probably good things, even though I wasn't born until 1989. I hope readers will take more heed to reviews that show an open-mindedness to both than to reviews that clearly idolize some other music form, such as jazz, soundly dismiss folk music, and equate the 60s with inescapable immaturity. This disc provides a rare and diverse selection from a most underrated singer. Mary Hopkin is not one of the big names in either 60s music or folk music, but her songs on this disk sure win my heart. Those Were The Days, I'm told, was her one biggest hit, and it begins this disk, and what a lovely and haunting start. She even ends the disk with lovely versions of that song in Spanish and Italian. In between is an amazing variety of songs, including some in two more languages other than English. Y Blodyn Gwyn, the one in her native Welsh, is particularly hauntingly beautiful. Other reviews have mentioned other beautiful entries such as Lord of the Reedy River and Lullaby of the Leaves. In addition, one I've not seen mentioned in other reviews, but which I find particularly lovely is Voyage of the Moon. Although the 1960s and the folk era indeed produced bigger names in music, this is a contribution that no one with a liking for those times should miss. Listen to it, and Mary Hopkin can have as big a role as many a bigger-named artist in convincing you that indeed those were the days.

Out of all the Apple reissues that I purchased back when they were released in 1991, Post Card was my very first selection. As a toddler, I was fascinated with Mary Hopkin's vocal delivery of Those Were the Days. Many years later, I found out that one of my aunts shared this particular fondness, for I discovered that she had a 45 RPM version of the song with the B-side as Mary Hopkin's arrangement of the Byrd's Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season). By then, the single was worn out, and the connection between the stylus and the vinyl didn't quite cut it.
Fortunately, with time, I would obtain these two songs on this CD, and the sound quality was infinitely better. Included in Post Card are other delightful remakes. Among them we have: Lullaby of the Leaves, Young Love, Love Is the Sweetest Thing, and Someone to Watch Over Me, which is perhaps my favorite.
In addition to containing the renditions of these old favorites, Post Card has Donovan pitching in two contributions for Ms. Hopkin, namely Voyage of the Moon and Lord of the Reedy River, both of which finely suited her voice. As another plus for Post Card, The Puppy Song, a lovable track that was almost released as a follow-up single to Those Were the Days, was provided by singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson.
Also in this release are Y Blodyn Gwyn and Prince En Avignon, two tracks not sung in English. So far as anything else to say about them, the instrumentations of echoing strings are reminiscent of the musical arrangements present in Claudine Longet's 1968 album Love Is Blue.
All in all, if Paul McCartney had planned to create a wholesome, pure, and sweet image for the Apple label, then his decision to select these songs exclusively for this young, eighteen-year-old woman hit the jackpot.

I would certainly say that "Those Were The Days" is not the greatest track on this album, no matter what language she sings it in. It is the most famous, and it is well-done, but the other tracks on this album deserve more attention. I'm not sure what the reason was for the diversity of musical styles across this album. I don't really care. Everything is excellent and suberbly recorded. There is no better example of how to record a female vocalist, period. It was a little troublesome to listen to this album at first. After we put a tall chair in between the speakers for her to sit in, it was more listenable. For those who are fans of George Martin's sense of balance and proportion, this album is ear candy. The heavy MCartney influence is pleasant, not overbearing or silly. The vocals are like a dream on a windy, fall day. There is no right or wrong about the musical selections on this album. All are handled with seriousness and charm. This is not a Beatles album with a female vocalist. It has the production and influence, but is it's own. There is much depth and beauty, every track can be enjoyed. The musical diversity makes the album fresh. The sexyness of the vocals, recorded with so much heart and detail makes this album one of the best there is. I enjoy albums like this one. full of suprises, and occasionally hypnotizing. This album is fully worth the distinction of being on such a special label.
