2007 reissue of one of two of her debut solo albums, released on the same day as her self-titled album in 1965. A true legend in British music, boasting a career that spans more than forty years that is showing no sign of slowing down yet. In a classic spin by her manager/mentor Andrew Loog Oldham, Faithfull's first two long players were released on the same day in April 1965. While Marianne Faithfull was full of the kind of fragile, baroque torch-pop with which she'd become successfully associated, it's the sister release Come My Way that was effectively a pure Folk album with shades of children's songs and a sense of the avant garde. Rev-Ola.
Come This Way for Marianne's early music...

"...an excellent folk album sung by Marianne's sweet soprano voice. Her version of Portland Town is gentle and then powerful. It would be pointless to go song by song because I would end up listing them all. Needless to say, for folk fans and Marianne fans this album is essential."
Appallingly bad remaster of a classic album

"Marianne Faithfull's 1965 "Come My Way" is a wonderful album comprised mostly of folk songs, but whoever was responsible for remastering this reissue should never be allowed to work in audio engineering again. The audio was recorded excessively loud, and distortion abounds. Avoid any editions by the Cherry, Rev-Ola and Lilith labels at any cost and get the DECCA edition instead."
