13th February, 1969: A launch party was held for the release of Mary's album Postcard at the Post Office Tower in London.
The party was organised by Apple Records. Guests included Paul McCartney, his new girlfriend Linda Eastman, Donovan, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Brian Jones.
Mary remembers one particular detail: "My family came down from Wales and in the throng of people we lost my 80-year-old grandmother, Blodwyn. When the crowd parted we saw her in the corner talking to Jimi Hendrix. Afterwards she said she had been talking to 'a nice little boy' who had been asking about milking the cows and feeding the chickens. I think he was fascinated by this funny little Welsh lady."
This week's free song is 'With You or Without You' from Valentine
