Marianne Faithfull's Greatest Hits
Released: Jan 1987
This chronicles the 1960s, when Miss Marianne was the iconic belle at the British Invasion ball. "As Tears Go By" is Faithfull's only big U.S. hit, but this remains a dazzling mix of English folk, American pop and Continental cool ("Something Better" stands out). "Some Other Spring" and the epic "Sister Morphine" point the way to her future as a cabaret singer for indie rockers.
