By the time Melanie appeared at the legendary Woodstock festival in August 1969, she had already recorded the two albums included in this CD. The powerful ballads showcased a great talent that arrived on the scene fully-formed. Both albums are rare and have been unavailable for many years, until on Melanie's 60th birthday in 2007, the Demon Music group remastered and packaged them in one outstanding CD with all the elements of the original sleeves intact along with a sleevenote. Enjoy a charismatic singer with crystal clear voice and plethoric tamperament. Memories are made of this.
