This is one really outstanding sounding CD. I couldn't locate any DR#'s for the disc with my barcode (0 7599-24326-2 7), but the others were all in double digits. No matter really as I didn't need to see those numbers to realize this is one fine compilation that sounds fantastic. If you like PG for his hits only then I urge you to get this...you won't be disappointed.

That came out on LP too FWIW, very limited press.
That's probably why I haven't found it yet. Will have to do some digging!

I know she did some vocals on "Scratch My Back", so you could be right.

She was touring with him. I saw her at least 2 shows including SO Back to Front and UP. Melonie sings vocals and harmonies. She has a unique voice that's well suited to what he does.

Everything thru SO, fantastic, then it just became blah to me and too "save the world". Not that it wasn't before , but the music "to me" got very vanilla and the cause to blatant.
