✨✧ Marianne FaithfullNorth Country Maid/Love In A Mist (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A pair of incredible early albums from Marianne Faithfull – back to back in a single set – with six bonus tracks too! First up is North Country Maid – a set in which Marianne Faithfull takes on the world of folk music – but with results that are completely different than most of her contemporaries! The tunes are traditional – mixed with contemporary numbers by Tom Paxton, Ewan McColl, Bert Jansch, and Donovan – and the arrangements by Mick Taylor and Jon Mark, who also wrote some of the tracks, have a strong mix of acoustic guitar and strings – but in ways that are very different than other pop folk recordings of the period, especially those from the US – done with lots of darkness at the bottom, in a way that almost recalls the style Nick Drake was going for at the start! This approach is different than on some of Marianne Faithfull's other 60s records, and the record may well be one of the best she ever recorded – filled with great tunes that include "North Country Maid", "Lullaby", "Wild Mountain Thyme", "Green Are Your Eyes", "The Last Thing On My Mind", "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", and "She Moved Thru The Fair". Love In A Mist is a seminal early album from Marianne Faithfull – and one that really shows the unique contributions she made to late 60s music in the UK! Faithfull was a key link between the older 60s British female singers – like Petula Clark, Cilla Black, and Sandy Shaw – and some of the hipper 70s songstresses to come – and that link was never more apparent than on this album, a sweet batch of 60s pop covers that are mostly familiar – but all done by Marianne in her unique vocal style, with plenty of dark, blue overtones that really transform the songs! Backings are by Mike Leander, who makes the tunes groove with a mixture of pop, rock, and folksy touches – and titles include "Our Love Has Gone", "Don't Make Promises You Can't Keep", "This Little Bird", "Ne Me Quitte Pas", "Counting", "Coquillage", and "Reason To Believe". Plus, the CD features 6 bonus tracks – "Mary Ann", "Come My Way", "Hang On To A Dream", "Monday Monday", "Rosie Rosie", and "The Most Of What Is Least". CD

✨✧ Love Affair/Steve EllisTime Hasn't Changed Us – The Complete CBS Recordings 1967 to 1971 (3CD set) ... CD
CBS/RPM (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
A really great run of music from The Love Affair, and later solo lead singer Steve Ellis – a group who were born in the same soulful brew as bigger mid 60s London acts like Traffic or The Spencer Davis Group – and who found in Ellis a similarly great lead singer to really give them focus! Yet while some of the other mod groups of the time maybe moved into headier territory, The Love Affair, and later Ellis, always were happy to keep things in this great mode that was more pop, but still with a very soulful approach on the vocals – and produced with almost the same sort of spectacular sounds that you'd hear from female singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black, especially as the music moves on. The solo Ellis material is especially wonderful – and includes the very groovy tunes he did for the film Loot – and this stunning 3CD set features a whopping 67 tracks in all, with titles that include "Everlasting Love", "More More More", "Loot", "I Got A Feelin", "Can't Stop Worryin", "Bringing On Back The Good Times", "Another Day", "One Road", "Handbags & Gladrags", "Bring My Whole World Tumbling Down", and "Walk On Gilded Splinters".
