The A and B-sides of the ten 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 and 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 favourite ‘Sister Morphine’. Producers include Andrew Loog Oldham, Mike Leander, Tony Calder and Mick Jagger.
The sumptuous 24-page booklet boasts a 6000-word note by leading music journalist Kris Needs, and features many illuminating quotes from Marianne herself. In addition to the gorgeous cover shot by photographer Tom Frank, the booklet also includes seven stunning full-page colour portraits from the mid-60s.
