I am not sure what is happening everywhere else, but the weather here in the Mid-Atlantic region has been all wet - literally. It just keeps raining, and when it's not raining, the heat is making the moisture sit in the air, feeling a bit like a steam bath. So, when it came time to think of a song for this Saturday morning, "Come In From The Rain" seemed like an obvious choice. It was written in 1975 by Melissa Manchester and Carole Bayer Sager, and was first featured on Manchester's 1976 album, 'Better Days & Happy Endings'. It was also on Bayer Sager's self-titled 1977 debut album. It was also the title track of a '77 album from The Captain & Tennille, who had an Adult Contemporary hit with the song. The song has been covered by many, but I still go back to the versions by Manchester and Bayer Sager when I need my fix. Here is an audio clip of Melissa Manchester singing "Come In From the Rain".

The album is wonderful, it was one of several by Manchester that I loved having in my collection. You can find 'Better Days & Happy Endings on iTunes and Amazon. You can also find the song on 'Playlist: The Very Best of Melissa Manchester' on iTunes and Amazon. That collection includes some of the incredible songs recorded by the talented singer/songwriter throughout her career.
