Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - 12/99, p.229
6 out of 10 - "...[Her] jejune ways surface in songs like the strange saloon classic 'What Have They Done To My Song, Ma?' and up-tempo coffeehouse-crowd-pleasers like 'Animal Crackers.' But one of the many odd things about Melanie was how grandly musical she could become..."d

Product Description:

Compilation producers: Peter Schekeryk, Mike Ragogna.
Includes liner notes by David Okamoto.
Digitally remastered by Robert Fripp.
Beautiful People: The Greatest Hits of Melanie gets the nod over the 1990 Rhino compilation The Best of Melanie as the best compilation of the singer's work. Containing 19 tracks where the earlier album contained 18, it could hardly be longer and fit on one CD. The songs have been mastered from their original master tapes for the first time by Robert Fripp (!) and David Singleton, so the sound quality is the best yet. The set contains the original LP version of Melanie's Top Ten hit "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)," running just over seven minutes, as opposed to the nearly four-minute single edit. Also featured are two recent songs, "Summer of Love II" and "I Will Get Over." That's all on the credit side. On the debit side, it is not in chronological order and the selection leaves off several of Melanie's singles chart entries, notably "Bitter Bad," which made the Top 40 (and is included in the Rhino compilation). Nevertheless, this must be counted as the best Melanie compilation yet, featuring her number-one hit "Brand New Key," as well as standards like "Beautiful People" and "What Have They Done to My Song, Ma?." ~ William Ruhlmann
