Barcode 4 010946 707020

 

Two albums on one CD? Well not quite as Leftover Wine has been edited in order to meet the time restrictions of CD. Born To Be (My First Album) is included in its entirety. Leftover Wine drops Close To It All and Tuning My Guitar. The sound quality of My First Album is very good (actually better than the C5 CD release) but the live tracks do suffer from occasional distortion. It is also interesting to compare the studio version of Momma, Momma on this CD with the one on the C5 release, as this one is a full version while the other seems to have been edited.

Tracks of note: In The Hour, not the version from Born To Be, but instead the version that Melanie recorded for the film All The Right Noises. Tracks 14 to 18 are taken from the album Garden In The City. The CD booklet includes 3 sides of notes written by Mark Paytress of the UK Record Collector magazine who compiled the collection.

One of the better compilations, this CD mixes material from the Buddah and Neighborhood years Lay Down (Candles In the Rain) is the edited version and not the full eight-minute version that the CD booklet would lead you to believe. The sleeve notes provide a good overview of Melanie's recording career.

This must be one of the worst compilations I have come across. The sound quality is poor and tracks fade in at the start with the sound balance changing from track to track. Best avoided
