MARIANNE FAITHFULL - BELLS OF FREEDOM
a typical early sounding marianne song - folksy with her unmistakeable wibbly angelic voice!

aux oreilles de marianne 4

MARIANNE FAITHFULL - SOMETHING BETTER
this was recorded for the rolling stones rock and roll circus concert film but it ended up on the cutting room floor. thankfully, years later it's been found and restored - see below:

aux oreilles de marianne 3

MARIANNE FAITHFULL - SISTER MORPHINE
a great song with a troubled history; the record label didn't like it; (it's quite a move away from her early ethereal, folky tunes), it got cast aside then rerecorded by the rolling stones. not until after a legal battle did marianne finally get her well deserved writing credit on it with jagger and richards.

MARIANNE FAITHFULL - SUMMER NIGHTS - LIVE + INTERVIEW
the pictures are from april 66 - very mod.
the amazing recording of marianne singing live is from july 65. listen to how very well spoken and innocent she sounds back then.

merci serge


a massive thank you to serge who got me copy of the magazine (below) with the charlotte gainsbourg dvd. he requested a song by marjorie noel - a name i was unfamiliar with. she had a brief singing career in the 60's, representing monaco in the eurovision song contest in 65. the song i have posted is 'the secret of my heart' - a cute little song which is made even better by the fact she has sung it in japanese!
