Who could have predicted in the '60s that Marianne Faithfull, at the time Mick Jagger's beautiful and scandalous actress girlfriend, would one day emerge as our greatest interpretive singer? The evidence can be heard on this extensive two-disc retrospective. It covers the period from Faithfull's 1979 comeback BROKEN ENGLISH--which reintroduced a confidently gritty singer thoroughly rooted in folk and rock--to A SECRET AFTERNOON, a spooky 1995 collaboration with film composer Angelo Badalamenti.
It was 1987's Hal Willner-produced STRANGE WEATHER that finally showcased Faithfull's versatility as a singer, featuring originals by Tom Waits and Doc Pomus, Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays" plus an older and wiser reprise of her '60s hit "As Tears Go By". The second disc of this set is rife with previously unreleased material from the Willner years, including an updated version of the Billie Holiday suicide dirge "Gloomy Sunday". Faithfull's subsequent involvement with the songs of Kurt Weill (SEVEN DEADLY SINS) also invites an inevitable (and favourable) comparison with another 2Oth century singer of "experience", Lotte Lenya.
