Marianne Faithfull is best known as the sixties rock chick who made a hit out of Jagger and Richard's 'As Tears Go By'. However this image does not do justice to an artist who has produced an impressively varied cannon of work. After splitting from her sixties influences Faithfull reinvented herself as an edgy and world-weary songstress and proved that she could write superb music as well as sing it. Collaborations with musicians as diverse as Dr John and The Chieftains have been spread between commanding solo work that has featured at turns both a tense punky sound and also a brooding and dark brilliance. 47 years of creative public life and Marianne Faithfull remains one of the most unique, bewitching and indeed unconventional musical artists Britain has ever produced.
