COMMENTS

 

Australian release of The Greatest Hits Legacy with three additional tracks.

 

Baby Guitar/Silver Threads and Golden Needles is a live recording taken from the Johnny Cash Show in August 1969. Silver Threads and Golden Needles is a duet with Johnny Cash. Sound quality on this track reflects the archive nature of the recording.

 

Working Legend (My Tribute To Johnny Cash) is a new version of a song that first appeared on Victim Of The Moon, though known to Melanie fans for many years. This version has new lyrics.

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 is the longer version with the spoken intro and spoken passage towards the end of the song.

 

Purple Haze Live is a recording from 30th Woodstock Reunion Concert.

 

The remaining tracks are classic Buddah recordings.
