At 18, after watching the movie Ghost World, I decided to start a record collection. I now own hundreds of records and own over 900 cds.

North Country Maid/Loveinamist
The Beat goes on put these two albums together on cd. I've been wanting to get North Country Maid for years but its price goes up and down. It's finally affordable plus it threw in another album of hers. Marianne Faithfull's voice here is pleasant and she sings folk songs here. Sally Free and Easy, North Country Maid, and This Little Bird are all really good songs. The later was written by John D. Loudermilk, a musician I've been curious about for a while. Marianne Faithfull's voice would change and so would her image. I think that even in her 60's days that she was a bit gothic. I can't decide who I like more the British songbird of the 60's or the tortured soul on Broken English. Either way it's good music.
