SLEEVE NOTES:

THE IVEYS - Pete Ham, Ron Jones, Tom Evans and drummer Mike Gibbons are the new Apple Corps group - the Iveys. An exciting quartet who are thought to be the most enjoyable group since The Beatles. The four hit London two years ago, they turned down several contracts because they only wanted to record their own compositions. Then they met Apple. Apple believes in their music. So will you when you hear "Storm in a Teacup" composed by Tom.

JAMES TAYLOR- James is a Boston, Massachusetts man. Taciturn, 20 and talented. At 18 he was in New York in a group called "The Flying Machine"- at just 20 he was in London with an Apple contract singing an album of fine musci produced by Peter Asher. James wrote "Something's Wrong" - it's just one track from his first L.P.

JACKIE LOMAX - John Richard Lomax was a Merseyside boy, born in Wallasey in 1944. He joined the Undertakers group after a series of othe jobs, and went with them to Germany in 1962. In 1966 he went to America - and went solo. His first record for Apple was "Sour Milk Sea" by George Harrison - he wrote the flip side himself, and has written "Little Yellow Pill". Jackie's singing and writing are emotive and exciting - he'll be on the scene for always.

MARY HOPKIN - Mary has been singing since she was four years old, in chapel, in South Wales Working Men's Clubs (where they know good voices when they hear them) and on Welsh T.V. She was chosen for "Opportunity Knocks" where she appeared successfully for eight weeks. Twiggy heard her, told Paul McCartney - the result a Number One chart-topper with "Those Were The Days". These are certainly the days for Mary - at 18, she's a star, and sounds like staying up there.
