“As I See It Now” was a 1974 release on Neighborhood Records.

 

Contains 9 Melanie originals plus songs by Bob Dylan, Jesse Winchester, Gus Kahn/Walter Donaldson and Ritchie Valens.

 

The bonus track ‘La Bamba’ is a rarity that was only released in Italy as a single.

 

The album features a host of great backing musicians including Mike Heron and Robin Williamson of The Incredible String Band.

 

‘Chart Song’ was recorded live at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, London.

 

Singles taken from the album were ‘Sweet Misery’ and ‘You’re Not A Bad Ghost, Just An Old Song’.

 

The critics raved:

 

“On no other record has Melanie so perfectly defined herself as an artist and a songwriter; Melanie has never achieved this kind of emotional depth and intellectual honesty”.

 

“It’s a rare artist who can turn out a fine LP that stands as an album as well as a collection of potential singles, but that’s exactly what Melanie has done.  Strongest item from the lady in a long while”.

 

Available for the first time on CD.

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
