Recorded live with just a pianist, this could have been a dreadful affair; others have tried similar concepts and failed. Yet this works marvelously. Why? Partially because Marianne Faithfull has lived about five normal lifetimes and this shows up in her voice. The audience hold its breath while Faithfull dugs into “Alabama Song”, “Surabaya Johnny” and “Pirate Jenny”. It’s glorious and if you like the extremes of dark and light, the sound of a whiskey-flavored voice accompanied by a lone pianist (Paul Trueblood), then you will love this piece of work. The concerts entitled “A Night In The Weimar Republic”, are made up of mainly songs by Brecht & Weill before and audience the really loved her, whisky and cigarette in her hand.
