Marianne Faithfull: Greatest Hits
This charming collection of her '60s best proves that Marianne Faithfull was a pop sophisticate from day one. Faithfull's 1964 teenage rendering of "As Tears Go By" sounds hardly less "experienced" than melancholy closer "Sister Morphine" did five years later. The chanson tradition looms large in "This Little Bird," which shares the baroque-pop sensibility of "Summer Nights." She even stretches toward the operatic with West Side Story's "I Have a Love."
