COMMENTS

 

The original album was a two record set called Melanie at Carnegie Hall. It was recorded over two nights in February 1973, the 2nd and the 3rd. The latter of these being Melanie's birthday. The shows are introduced by Alison Steele (2nd) and Scott Muni (3rd) of WNEW-FM, New York.

 

The circumstances surrounding the release of the CD are rather a mystery. A number of copies were sold directly by the record company. However, they suddenly refused to sell any more and since then the CD has failed to appear on any of the Internet retailers websites, or in any record stores and seems to have been withdrawn.

 

This 2CD set contains the full album but has little information other than the track listing and recreates none of the original album packaging.
