Original Music and Songs by Melanie Safka
Tom Bell plays a disgruntled young Brit who becomes bored by his job and his marriage. Bell impulsively launches an affair with 15-year-old actress (Olivia Hussey). But fear not: this isn't going to be "The Joey Buttafuco Story". Rather, both Bell and Hussey are brought to their senses when she thinks she's pregnant. Judy Carne, at the tail end of her Laugh-In generated fame, is adequate as Bell's loving wife. Director Gerry O'Hara based the screenplay for All the Right Noises on his own novel. - Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide.
The film is available on Blue-Ray and DVD
With the exception of My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, which is traditional, Melanie wrote all the original music and songs for this 1971 film starring Olivia Hussey, Tom Bell and Judy Carne. In The Hour originally appeared on Born To Be, but here is specially recorded for the soundtrack and there are five new songs. The title track is an instrumental and each of the six songs appear as instrumentals as well the vocal versions. The vocal version of Pebbles In The Sand is, for some unknown reason, included twice on side two of the album.
The album has never officially been released on CD. However, it is possible to find most of the songs amongst the many compilations. In The Hour can be found on “The Best Of The Rest Of Melanie” and “Her Songs”. Save The Night is included on a number of compilations (though some incorrectly list it as Jig Saw Puzzle). However, the most easily found of these compilations is “The Very Best Of Melanie”, which also contains Pebbles In The Sand. Please Love Me can be found on LaserLights compilation simple titled “Melanie”.
Please Love Me, In The Hour, Ears To The Ground and Getting Out were all included as bonus tracks on one of the early CD release of Candles In The Rain (Axis/EMI CDAX 701480)
Oddly, My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean, the only track Melanie didn't actually write, turns up on the “Oldie Giants” CD.
