2018 collection. The A and B-sides of the 10 singles Marianne recorded for UK Decca between 1964 and 1969, plus her Go Away From My World EP for good measure. All tracks are in authentic mono, just like the actual 45s. Mastered from the best possible sources, including some fresh Abbey Road transfers of the original tapes. The CD features Marianne s Top 20 hits 'As Tears Go By', 'Come And Stay With Me', 'This Little Bird' and 'Summer Nights', plus lesser-known gems such as 'Something Better', 'That s Right Baby', 'House Of The Rising Sun', 'Counting' and the controversial cult favorite 'Sister Morphine'. Come And Stay With Me restores the focus upon the magnificent folk (a remarkable rendition of the traditional "Greensleeves," produced by Oldham) and popular music (including versions of Jackie DeShannon's "Come And Stay With Me," Donovan's 'The Most Of What Is Least" and John D. Loudermilk's "This Little Bird") that Marianne Faithfull created at Decca as she stumbled towards writing her own material and moving towards a redemptive career path. The package also features extensive biographical notes by celebrated music journalist Kris Needs, which are informed by his longstanding close friendship with the singer, and were forged using numerous interviews during the past four decades. Producers include Andrew Loog Oldham, Mike Leander, Tony Calder and Mick Jagger. Packaged in a sumptuous 24-page booklet boasting a 6000-word note by leading music journalist Kris Needs featuring many illuminating quotes from Marianne herself. In addition to the gorgeous cover shot by photographer Tom Frank, the CD booklet also includes seven stunning full-page color portraits from the mid-'60s.
