Marianne Faithfull is somewhat of an enigma. She did "As Tears Go By' in 1964, her voice was less than spectacular then. 'Fraid I can't say that she genuinely improved over the years. A stronger lower register is certainly apparent, yet I can't say it moves me very much. She certainly was pretty back then, but age is cruel to women. Perhaps I'm not as generous with my praise as I should be.
