Few stars of the 1960s have reinvented themselves as successfully as Marianne Faithfull. Coaxed into a singing career by Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham in 1964, she had a big hit in both Britain and the U.S. with her debut single, the Jagger/Richards composition “As Tears Go By” (which prefaced the Stones’ own version by a full year). Considerably more successful in her native land than the States, she had a series of hits in the mid-’60s that set her high, fragile voice against delicate orchestral pop arrangements.

Faithfull’s 1987 release of Strange Weather recast her as a nicotine-stained chanteuse, approaching such standards as “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” and “Penthouse Serenade” with a ravaged, world-weary demeanor that recalls the latter-day recordings of Billie Holiday. She also tackles some blues and jazz material and turns “As Tears Go By” into the gut-wrenching torch ballad neither the Stones nor Faithfull could ever have done in the ’60s. A dark, challenging masterpiece.
