|Marianne Faithfull is one of the most famous and infamous artists of our time; an icon of the Sixties.
This DVD takes us through the early days of Marianne’s life, who at 17 recorded the hit single As Tears Go By, the first song ever to be written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
She talks intimately about her relationship with John Dunbar, a man at the center as the 60’s scene in London: life with Mick Jagger and the Stones, and how she plunged deeper into drugs.
Marianne takes us through her life on the “wall” as an addict in London, associations with fringe elements, her attempts at rehabilitation and how she finally kicked the habit after a near death experience. After pursuing a film career, she tells how her first love was still music and marked her return to the recording industry by writing and recording the hit album Broken English.
We see her special expressive talent for music featured on this DVD through the following tracks:
Working Class Hero
Ballad of Lucy Jordan
As Tears Go By
Dreaming My Dreams
