COMMENTS

 

This limited edition release was only available either through the Melanie fan club or at live appearance and is now no longer available. Too Late To Go, Rainbow Race, Natural Man, Long Long Time and If I Needed You are all taken from Silver Anniversary while Record Machine is take form Silence Is King where it appeared as Some Day I'll Be an Old Record.

 

You Don't Know Me is a re-recording of a song from Old Bitch Warrior. Prematurely Grey, which first appeared on Cowabonga is also a re-recording. These particular versions are still unique to this CD, as are new songs If My Heart Should Lose Its Way (later re-recorded for Low Country) and I Never Had A Clue.

 

Bitterblue, Missing You and Every Breath You Take resurfaced on Ring The Living Bell. Unchained Melody is included on Shine On.
