Ballroom Streets is a 1978 double album released by Melanie. The album is essentially a live album but recorded in the studio with a small audience. It mixed new recordings of old songs with some new songs. When first issued on CD in 1989, it did not contain "Holding Out", "Any Guy", "Groundhog Day" or "Friends and Company". These songs were re-added on the 1994 CD pressings.

The album is available for download at iTunes and Melanie's website.
