As a follow-up to Mary Hopkin’s first single “Those Were The Days” (released in September 1968) and first album “Post Card” (released in February 1969), Paul McCartney decided to write her a song for her next single. In February 1969, he recorded a demo of “Goodbye” for Mary to learn and for arranger Richard Hewson to write a score. On March 1 and 2, 1969, they were at Morgan Studios for the proper recording.
The March 1 session was filmed by Apple’s Tony Bramwell for a promotional clip. In the footage, Hopkin is seen miming the song, and there are shots of her and McCartney in the control room listening to a playback.
Mary’s “Goodbye” was issued simultaneously in 28 countries last weekend. In several of these territories a promotional film is being screened by local TV companies, showing Mary and Paul McCartney actually making the disc.From New Musical Express, April 5, 1969
