Marianne Faithful: Easy Come Easy go
Buy! - (Decca)
The veteran singer reunites with Hal Willner (who produced her excellent 1987 album Strange Weather) for another delightfully unpredictable covers album with source material ranging from Bessie Smith and Duke Ellington to Neko Case and the Decemberists. An impressive lineup of special guests contribute including Nick Cave, Cat Power, Antony Hegarty, Rufus Wainwright and Keith Richards, but the focus is on the masterful interpretive powers of Faithful’s raspy, cigarette-scarred voice. 3/3/2009 - Don Yates
