A beautiful start to a BBC concert at the Paris Theatre in London in 1975, at which Melanie was accompanied by Barry Lee Harwood on guitar and mandolin. Words:

Autumn flower rhyme filtered through my mind
But I wouldn't begin to explain without help from a song
And the moon and the sun

Sometimes the wind that blows through life
Can stir up the darkness and pain
I've been blown to the right and the left of the light
It's the wind but I still feel to blame

The Autumn Lady is laying now on a mountain of feathers and down, oh
She spent all her nights under raspberry lights
And her days, wrote her days into songs

Why has the maple gone brown on me
Has the falling already begun
I lay in the grass in the fields of the past
Since you're gone with the moon and the sun

I am just a fan making videos and trying to adhere to youtube's copyright rules, which state "... now copyright management is easy & accessible for everyone; artists can let fans re-use their content, and fans can create promotional & business opportunities for their favourite artists making content-id a true win-win that enables new forms of creativity and collaboration around the world ..." Therefore my thanks go to everyone for allowing this content to be posted under these rules.

No monetary value is made from the video or the audio, and I have made it under what I believe to be "Fair Use constitutes Copyright Disclaimer - Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favour of fair use."
