COMMENTS

 

Tracks 1 to 12 are the original Buddah studio recordings. Lay Down (Candles In The Rain) is the full version. Summer of Love is the version that was included on the CD Beautiful People: The Greatest Hits Of Melanie (BMG/Buddha 74465 99630 2). Rag Doll makes its first appearance on CD having been previously available only as a hard to find 7 vinyl single. This is the longer version with the spoken intro and spoken passage towards the end of the song.

 

Sound quality is excellent and I would guess these are the re-masters done by Robert Fripp and David Singleton. The exception is Rag Doll and thou the sound quality is very good it is not up to the standard of the rest of the CD.
