Newstalgia Backstage Weekend with Melanie, her first appearance for the BBC, recorded live at the Paris Theater, 1975.
Only a slight departure this week from our usual diet of high-voltage, high-energy, high-volume Rock. Melanie is one of those artists who have bubbled under the radar for a number of years. Initially regarded as a kind of homage to Flower-Power, her music has withstood all sorts of flight-of-trend and has maintained its integrity throughout it all.
This weekend it's a concert recording made by the BBC in 1975, which ironically was her first appearance before their microphones, live at The Paris Theater.
Slowing the pace down a bit - quieting the noise from an otherwise really noisy weekend (you know what I'm talking about) and paying tribute to a Woman and her timeless art.
