‘Rich Kid Blues’ by Marianne Faithfull.

Produced by Mike Leander, who had produced and arranged much of Faithfull’s Decca material,
“Rich Kid Blues” is an intriguing album of spare, largely acoustic readings of folk / rock songs, including
several Bob Dylan covers, as well as songs by Phil Ochs, George Harrison, Cat Stevens, Tim Hardin,
James Taylor
and Sandy Denny.

Marianne Faithfull had this to say about the 1971 recordings: “The record itself is very strange and ghostly.
It’s the voice of somebody incredibly high, probably on the edge of death. They always sound like that. Johnny
Thunders sounds like that. Anybody who heard that record would have said, ‘Well that’s that. We’ll never hear
from her again’.”

Issued on vinyl for the first time since 1985, our Record Store Day 2017 edition is pressed on silver coloured
vinyl and limited to just 1000 copies worldwide.
