Marianne Faithfull: Strange Weather
Faithfull's 1987 release recast her as a nicotine-stained chanteuse, approaching such standards as "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"
and "Penthouse Serenade" with a ravaged, world-weary demeanor that recalls the latter-day recordings of Billie Holiday. She also
tackles some blues and jazz material and turns "As Tears Go By" into the gut-wrenching torch ballad neither the Stones nor
Faithfull could ever have done in the 60s. A dark, challenging masterpiece.
Garth Hudson's accordion runs can be heard on one track.
