Recorded Live at Borders Books and Music
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, July 24th, 1999

Dear Friends,

I was amazed the first time I heard Melanie's music. Like an old friend, her music seemed to reach out to me. Personal. Innocent, lost, found, humorous, but always honest. I was an instant fan.

True fans will know that this is the first complete live recording Melanie has produced since her "Live At Carnegie Hall" album in 1973. She picks up right where she left off, reeling in the audience and touching their hearts. Her children, Leilah, Jeordie and Beau-Jarred


It was my pleasure to have been involved in the production of this recording with the folks at DES records and Borders Books & Music. If you are familiar with Melanie's music, then you are familiar with Melanie. If not, please listen closely -- you are about to meet your new best friend
