Both sides were produced by Paul.

Her second single release was Paul's catchy melody Goodbye (although credited to Lennon-McCartney). Hopkin's great vocal, along with the composing credit, was enough to make it a U.K. top 10 hit in 1969. A promotional video was shot (though never broadcast) of McCartney and Hopkin recording the song. Paul did cut a demo version of "Goodbye" for Mary Hopkin. It has appeared on a number of bootlegs, and for the actual version Paul contributed a significant amount of the instrumental backing, including guitars.

After Those Were The Days ironically knocked "Hey Jude" off the top slot in 1968, justice was done when "Get Back" prevented this follow-up from hitting the top by remaining there for six weeks.
