Once I Had a Sweetheart - Live at the Royal Festival Hall. Set track as current obsession.

The album featured all of Hopkin's hits but it failed to chart. Knock Knock, Who's There?" was released as a single in the United States and Canada, both countries excluded from the first release of that record in 1970. The single reached number 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 11 on the Easy Listening chart in December 1972, giving Hopkin her last US hit. Television series, on BBC1. In September 2005 she released a retrospective album on a label run by her daughter, Mary Hopkin Music, entitled Live at the Royal Festival Hall 1972. It was followed in December 2006 by a Christmas recording, "Snowed Under", released on download only.

Mary Hopkin - Mary Hopkin: Live At the Royal Festival Hall 1972 Album Lyrics. 1. Both Sides Now (Live At the Royal Festival Hall 1972).

1. Streets of London - Live at the Royal Festival Hall. Mary Hopkin Diğer Albümleri. Those Were the Days/Goodbye. 20th Century Rocks: 60's Pop - Those Were The Days.

Mary Hopkin's liner notes of this 34 year old album give an indication as to her attitude to her brief but bright music career all that time ago. Picked up by the Beatles' own Apple label, and thrust into pop-stardom with a trans-Atlantic number-one single, it was only a matter of time before she withdrew. Despite being a few years into her career by 1972, Hopkin sounds shy, self-effacing and modest. She appears with her friends and her husband, producer Tony Visconti, creating the sound and atmosphere of a small fireside get-together
