Featuring "Birthday Of The Rain"
Having found her stride in the studio on 1970s Candles in the Rain, Melanie's 1971 release The Good Book seemed like a case of two steps forward, one step back. The Good Book was recorded while Melanie was at loggerheads with her record label, Buddah Records (Melanie and her husband and studio collaborator Peter Schekeryk would form their own label to release her next LP), and while it doesn't seem to have impacted the craft of the album, the presence of three covers and the frequently dour mood of these songs don't seem to reflect an artist who was entirely at peace with herself.
