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.
