CD Reviews

Sweet Marianne
Michael Andrews | San Diego, Ca. United States | 06/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This import includes all of her 1rst American LP, entitled 'Marianne Faithfull' and some wonderful additions like, 'Oh, Look Around You', 'I'd Like to Dial Your Number', 'The Sha La La Song', 'Morning Sun' and the beautiful 'Greensleeves'. Hearing these songs transported me back to 1964 and an innocent time of great British music. Listen to 'Paris Bells' or 'They Never Will Leave You' and wonder at the sweetness of Marianne's voice. Of course, this includes her biggies, 'As Tears Go By', 'Come and Stay With Me' and 'This Little Bird'. Actually, 'This Little Bird' was not included on the original 1rst release of 'Marianne Faithfull', but rather was added to latter pressings when it became a huge hit. You know, Marianne's dark side was breaking through even then. Listen to the lyrics of 'Time Takes Time' and 'Oh, Look Around You', both written by her. Dark and forboding. A little strange for a young lass of 17.
If you loved the 60's British folk and pop scenes, you'll love this album. Some wonderful memories are in store for those who remember her back then and a revelation for those that are only familiar with her cigarette and drug tortured voice of today. I love either incarnation of the Legend called Marianne Faithfull."
The beginnings of an interesting career

"This was one of two debut albums by Marianne - a collection of folk music (Come my way), which I've already reviewed, was released on the same day as her first pop album. That album contained the first 14 songs here, the remaining 6 being added as bonus tracks for this CD.This collection includes two of Marianne's biggest sixties hits, these being Come and stay with me (my favorite of hers) and As tears go by (written by the Rolling Stones). Among the other tracks are covers of Downtown (Petula), What have they done to the rain (Searchers) and Can't you hear my heartbeat (Goldie and the gingerbreads).The bonus tracks include the traditional Greensleeves, here given a pop arrangement. The version of House of the rising sun included here is inspired by the Animals' hit version of the song and is totally different from the traditional folk version to be found on Come my way.There are many other interesting songs here. Marianne's voice was exceptionally sweet and pure back then, in sharp contrast to her recordings from the late seventies and beyond. Her music was also much more upbeat in the sixties, as this set shows."
