|U.K. Singles Chart Detail :||
Both sides were produced by Paul McCartney.
Mary Hopkin was born in Wales on 3rd May 1950 in Pontardawe (just north of Swansea).
In one of life's ironies it was the second Apple single that knocked the first Apple single off the top slot, meaning that "Hey Jude" thought by many to be one of the best Beatle singles ended up with spending a mere two weeks at the upper echelon. In fact, no other Beatle number one spent a shorter time there.
As an aside, Mary returned to the album charts in 1984 as a member of Oasis (no, not that "Oasis" !).
