In 1965 Marianne Faithful released 2 debut albums simultaneously, a self-titled pop album and an album called Come My Way comprised somewhat unexpectedly of folk tunes. While the first album generally reaffirmed her persona as she-devil and soulless poster child of that hedonistic generation, the latter gave listeners a fleeting glimpse of a hidden darker side, perhaps an unintentional foretelling of those black days that would soon follow. This reissue, available briefly in the UK and Japan, features 4 bonus tracks: her classic 1969 single 'Sister Morphine', released prior to the Rolling Stones' version, the 1964 B-side 'Blowin' In The Wind', 'ET Maintenant', from a 1965 EP and the 1966 B-side 'That's Right Baby'. Digipak. Lilith. 2006.
Not best "Come My Way" song version.

"I bought this album for the hard to find song "Come My Way". The song has two versions. The version on this album is straight guitar and Marianne Faithfull vocal. In my opinion the enhanced version with base guitar and lead guitar added is superior. That version is only on the Japanese version of Faithfull's album "North Country Maid". (also sold here.)
Interesting "raw" versions of other songs.
Usual excellent amazon.com buying / shipping experience. Arrives ahead of their estimated arrival date."
Remember when you were young!

"Marianne Faithfull her most recent cd/dvd Live In Hollywood sounds very different from this cd Come My Way. But every artist has to begin somewhere! And for Marianne it is a good start as a young girl around 1965. This is a cd of folksongs. At the same day in 1965 the company also released the cd Marianne Faithfull, with popsongs. If you are a fan I advise you to buy both cd's and listen to the fine music: remember when you were young!"
