    It is a cover of an old folk song, IIRC...

    Very talented and attractive singer. I can remember "Those were the Days" being played so often when it was released and she seemed to be everywhere making guest appearances on various shows.

    Sir Paul wrote Goodbye for her, and I think she was runner-up in Eurovision with Knock Knock (Who's There). The overlooked gem though is her Earth Song/Ocean Song album.

    She fared better than Jethro Tull, they were listed as Jethro Toe on their first single!
