Melanie - Bo Bo's Party (1968) HQ




MUNROWS RETRO

This was my first introduction to Melanie's music and it was all over the FM "underground" radio stations in Toronto, Ontario and Buffalo, NY in 1968 and 1969.
A number of instances of her music were inspired by her love of the cabaret songs of Lotte Lenya and music of Bertolt Brecht, although she used folk music as
her means to bring to the audience that quality of expressionism with the intimacy of a confessional poet.

The meaning of this particular melody certainly was not lost on those doing album reviews back in 1968 and 1969. In a review of the album the song appears on,
Born To Be, Hi Fi Mag noted the following:

"As a songwriter she is superb, tackling with ease topics as diverse as prostitution (Bo Bo's Party), promiscuity (I Really Loved Harold), commitment (Close To
It All and Animal Crackers). She composes forceful, personal lyrics and houses them perfectly in simple, often humable melodies." http://www.melaniemusic.com/melanie/b...

In any event, I think anyone watching her performance of the song in France can tell by her facial expressions and mannerisms that this song was intended to
be a somewhat bawdy bit of drama laced with a tantalizing darkness. The proper spelling of the title IS "Bo Bo's Party" (as any album or single sleeve from that
time will confirm) and NOT the much more often used misspelling of "Bobo's Party."

I was lucky to catch it one night and record it. Of course now I have it with her other songs on CD. It became one of my favorite songs and I think, among her
very best. It actually charted as a single at #1, but only in one country: France. There are some articles that claim it reached #14 rather than #1, thus I'm not
sure who is telling the truth. Otherwise, it was heard on the underground circuit in most other countries, particularly in the US and Canada.

Released in November 1968 on her debut album, Born To Be, after her appearance at Woodstock, the LP was re-released under the title of My First Album. The single
"Bo Bo's Party" that became a smash hit in France was released in February 1969.
