“Mel Green, previously a founder of Mel, Mel and Julian, now has released his own CD"I'm taking my time". Well, the wait was worth it ! Mel's voice of polished silver leads the way through original, melodic, meaningful and expertly crafted songs. The trademark expert guitar playing provides the perfect platform for his haunting harmonies and vocal virtuosity. Talk about breaking the mould ? They sure don't make them like this any more! ” – Ron Newman

 

“Yesterday I listened to your wonderful album.

What I loved were your carefully crafted lyrics that spoke of growing older, remembering younger days, a woman in the middle and so much more. I was transported by your music to a place that somehow spoke to my heart. It was inspirational. I'm not saying this lightly, you've really created something quite beautiful, a treasure, a work of fine art. You reminded me what is possible with words and voice, acoustic guitars and other instruments. I loved your melodies. I loved your voice. I loved your music. You've created something you should be exceedingly proud of. This CD won't go in a drawer somewhere, I'll be enjoying it for a very long time. Thank-you for sharing this with me and the world.” – Steve Gyurina

 

“I'm taking my time”... truly beautiful. I had to sit down to listen – stunning... filled with joy and imagery...a visual feast for the ears :) Just brilliant! Thank you, for all the wonderful music.” – Shelly Ford, UK
