glad you gave it a listen...I think most people just know Brand New Key and Lay Down, Lay Down but they would be amazed at the body of work she's produced...I have a friend in Atlanta and every time I go to visit her, Melanie ends up on the CD player at some point in time during the visit.

and i think the older she gets the better she writes and performs. she's grown into a simply amazing force. do you remember bobo's party from that first lp?

ps -- i was living in atanta when i first heard her. had a friend on 14th stree, the heart of hippiedom then, and he had that first lp. do you recall bobo's party from that one? oh my. we used to get stoned regularly and listen to no one but her, over and over.

I didn't remember the song, but I looked it up and listened to it...I can see the getting stoned and listening to that over and over!
