Mary Hopkin: 'She's A Joan Baez Type, But We'll Soon Alter That'

Bill DeYoung, Goldmine, 14 April 1995

MARY HOPKIN is surprised and flattered to learn that she is something of a mythical figure in America. In the States, general knowledge of Hopkin is pretty much limited to seven singles and three albums she released between 1968 and '72, and even then, you'd be hard-pressed to find too many people who could hum anything other than 'Those Were The Days'.
