Melanie "Leftover Wine" 1970

I have no qualms at all in offering this. Despite veering off into the realms of 'What Have They Done To My Song, Ma?' and numerous other hit singles, Melanie's albums were under the arms of many a long-haired schoolboy in the early 70s. ('Candles In The Rain' was my particular favourite.) She was cute, she wrote great songs, and - for all of us wannabe hippies - she seemed relevant.
Great voice? Well, pretty good. Great guitar playing? Well, no. Charisma? In bucket-loads. Here she is, live at the Carnegie Hall in 1970.

I am (was) one of those long-haired schoolboys who fell in love with Melanie Safka and/or her music. And it wasn't easy in the 70's in Spain...

Thanks a lot for this one

PS Oh well... I fell in love with Janis Joplin too but I'm (was) a lost case of eclecticism...
