This collection (another in a long line of Melanie collections) offers no real surprises, but also will not disappoint. Featured tracks include her striking cover of the Stones' "Ruby Tuesday," her Top Ten hit "Lay Down (Candles in the Rain)," and the obvious "Brand New Key." At a very listenable ten songs and with Collectibles' typically fine liner notes, The Encore Collection makes the perfect introduction to Melanie's unique brand of innocent folk-pop.
