Marianne Faithfull

11-26-12        Marianne Faithfull

Percy Sledge born 1940; Etta James born 1928; on 11-25-72 Chuck Berry “My Ding-A-Ling” was No. 1 in England; on 11-23-74 Elton John “Greatest Hits” LP was No. 1 in England; on 11-26-77 Bread “The Sound of Bread” (‘best of’) LP was No. 1 in England.  11-24-79 Marianne Faithfull “Broken English” LP charted at No. 57 in England.

Really rather difficult to keep straight all the latter day releases by Marianne Faithfull; some have multiple versions, too – 2CD versions, ltd. releases etc.  I was never particularly bothered by her 60’s output, but I do keep a “Best of” from that era.  Mostly, I like her initial trio of albums for Island Records…
