COMMENTS

 

Melanie's Christmas album contains four of her own compositions and her selection of favourite carols and Christmas songs. Tonight's The Kind Of Night is a re-recording (the third version) and Christmas Lullaby is a re-working of a song that appeared in 1983 on Seventh Wave, then called Lover's Lullaby. A live version of Virgin Mary can also be found on the CDV Brand New Key.
