COMMENTS

 

This is Melanieís best live album for a number of years and, for me, works much better as a album than Live at Meltdown 2007 and the disappointing Olgaís Birthday Party.† The sound is crisp and clear and Melanieís voice is strong and warm. She sounds relaxed, like she is having fun, and there is good audience rapport. Beauís accompaniment is particularly effective on the viola-guitar, making Beautiful People and The Saddest Thing two outstanding performances.
