Our song of the week for your listening pleasure is Mary's cover of Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now' from the Festival Hall album.

Friday 27 Feb 2015

Just two days until Jessica performs 'Those Were The Days' at the Wales at No.1 concert in Cardiff.

The rehearsals have gone exceptionally well, and Jessica says "I don't think they expected me to sound so similar".

Your song this week is rather predictably 'Those Were the Days' from the Festival Hall album.

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

Friday 6 Feb 2015

This month's album is Valentine. Your song this week is 'Sometimes it's not Enough (When You Use Only Words)'

Our very own Jessica is performing at the Wales at No.1 concert on March 1st at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff. She will be performing 'Those Were the Days', which held the top spot in the UK charts for 6 weeks in 1968.
Jessica said "I know how much Those Were the Days means to my mum, and it is a great honour to be able to sing it for her "

In what is turning out to be a busy year already for Jessica, she's also been invited to tour with Holy Holy. You can find tour dates and information on Jessica's website
