Post Card [2010 Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Paul McCartney produced this debut album of twee but pretty, romantic pop-folk. Besides "Those Were the Days" which actually originally appeared only on the British version, although it later appeared on a CD reissue made available throughout the world, the highlights are Donovan's "Lord of the Reedy River" and "The Honeymoon Song," which McCartney himself had sung with the Beatles way back in 1963 on the BBC. If there's a fault to be found, it's that there's too high a percentage of pre-rock/pop standards à la "There's No Business Like Show Business."

If there's a fault to be found, it's that there's too high a percentage of pre-rock/pop standards à la "There's No Business Like Show Business." As it turns out, this was more due to the leanings of McCartney than Hopkin, who preferred the more simply arranged folk numbers such as the Donovan covers and the Welsh "Y Blodyn Gwyn." Also on board is a rather nice composition, "The Game," by Beatles producer George Martin, who contributed some piano and orchestra conducting to the album. [The 2010 reissue of Post Card was remastered by the same Abbey Road team who remastered the acclaimed 2009 Beatles reissues and was expanded by four bonus tracks: the canceled single "Fields of St. Etienne," the single "Goodbye," and the B-sides "Turn! Turn! Turn!" and "Sparrow." There were also accompanying digital downloads of the French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions of "Those Were the Days."]
