Easy Come Easy Go is a covers collection, featuring Faithfull in different musical settings and interpreting the songs of everyone from Merle Haggard to Smokey Robinson to Duke Ellington to Randy Newman to the Decemberists to Morrissey with a killer guest list including Antony Hegarty, Rufus Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Kate Anna McGarrigle, Jarvis Cocker, Jenni Muldaur, Sean Lennon, Warren Ellis, Nick Cave, and Keith Richards. The core band on this set includes old friends like Marc Ribot and Greg Cohen as well as drummer Jim White, Rob Burger, Doug Weiselman, Steve Weisberg, Barry Reynolds, Steven Bernstein, Marty Ehrlich, and Lenny Pickett. The sense of stylistic sprawl on these 12 songs is incredible.

  • Call me crazy, but I like Gangi's "A" because I thought it was Marianne Faithfull.

  • The image campaign for this leather and oil love story was hip, sexy, and stylish, too bad the actual film wasn't as cool as the movie poster itself. Who knows maybe someone will remake it.

I'm one of those music addicts that refuses to listen to Broadway Musicals written after 1979, yet I'm a fan of Broadway 'like' composers such as David Bowie, Kate Bush, Nina Hagen, and so on. At some point the music of Weill and Brecht and Eisler was introduced to me through the iconic voice of Dagmar Krause. "Tank Battles: Songs of Hanns Eisler" contains many of Eisler's strongest works, and I'm happy for the english versions contained in TB as the lyrics play a massive role in not only the understanding of Eisler's narratives, but also as a entrance into the vocal performance which Dagmar Krause gives so richly.
