Marianne FaithfullNorth Country Maid/Love In A Mist (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Decca/BGO (UK), 1966/1967. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99
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

Jackie LeeTown I Live In – The EMI Years 1965 to 1967 ... CD
Poker (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy ... $3.99 13.99
Way more than just a collection of Jackie Lee's work for EMI in the mid 60s – as the set features almost as many unreleased tunes as it does actually-issued singles! The package offers a great look at the early years of this hip Brit female singer – a vocalist who ranks right up there with the 60s best by Sandie Shaw or Cilla Black, and like both of them (especially Black), has a great way of balancing bold vocals with a tightly syncopated groove! Backings are superb – and handled by Ivor Raymonde, Mike Leander, and Les Reed – all names we can trust for very groovy things at this point in their career – and the package also features a number of tracks that Lee recorded under the name of Emma Rede, plus two done with The Shadows as well. And before you complain, the material here was actually issued under the Columbia label at the time – which had ties to EMI – hence the title. Tracks include "Lonely Clown", "Love Is Gone", "So Love Me", "When The Boys Talk About The Girls", "The Town I Live In", "Just Like A Man", "Your Other Love", "For The Last Time", "Window Cleaner", and "Someday You'll Love Me".
