Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Marianne Faithfull (vocals); Angelo Badalamenti (conductor).
  • Producers include: Mark Miller Mundy, Keith Richards, Don Was, Mark Isham, Hal Willner.
  • Compilation producer: Chris Blackwell.
  • Something of a promotional sampler, FAITHFULL: A COLLECTION OF HER BEST RECORDINGS acts as a a supplement to the more official compilation, the two-CD PERFECT STRANGER: THE ISLAND ANTHOLOGY. Still, this selection is notable for its inclusion of Faithfull's eerie rendition of "Trouble In Mind" from Alan Rudolph's '80s retro detective film of the same name, and the powerful live version of the scabrous "Times Square," a junkie's narrative nearly religious in its intensity. Anyone who doubts Marianne Faithfull's greatness as a singer need only hear this thrilling performance. Also on hand is a rare performance of Patti Smith's Native American chant "Ghost Dance," featuring and produced by Keith Richards. Note: "As Tears Go By" is the 1965 original, so one can compare just how far she had come.

Alternative Press (12/94, p.110) - "...a voice that was equal parts gravel, nicotine and venom...a sort of smoky Marlene Dietrich for the Me Generation..."
