US CD released in 1991 on PRECIOUS CARGO RECORDS PC 1947

 

COMMENTS

 

Melanie's first US release for six years, Precious Cargo takes the bulk of its material (tracks 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) direct from Cowabonga (see that album re versions of these songs), though track 10 (Window Pain) seems to have been edited for this release. Rock and Roll Heart is a new recording of the song that first appeared on Melanie 1987. Undertow and Hard Rain make their first (but not last) appearance, while the version of Tonight's The Kind Of Night is unique to this album.
