The Golden Past: Marianne Faithfull's Favourite Albums
Joel McIver , February 4th, 2013 06:42

Following the recent reissue of her landmark album Broken English, and in advance of her 50th anniversary as a performer next year, Marianne Faithfull tells Joel McIver about her 13 favourite LPs


Jack White – Blunderbuss
I couldn’t tell you a particular track on this album, but I think it’s brilliant. He’s very, very clever. It’s very bluesy. I would have liked to make that record myself, actually. Yes, I liked the White Stripes too, but I like this better. I love everything about Americana, which is why you’ve got albums by The Band and Dolly Parton on this list, and I work it myself. Would I go that route myself? Well, I think doing a whole country album wouldn’t suit me. It wouldn’t be Marianne Faithfull.
