MARIANNE FAITHFULL
SUSHEELA RAMAN
THE BEWITCHED HANDS
Live In Paris, 2011 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Studio Charles Trenet, Maison de Radio France, Paris, France for the show Le Pont des Artistes, Jan 25, 2011. Excellent FM stereo. Broadcast Jan 28, 2011.

This is a must-listen show for Marianne Faithfull fans.

She’s in top form to promote her latest album, Horses and High Heels, just recently released in January 2011. You also get to hear Faithfull talk about the album, her writer’s block and more. An interpreter gives a quick translation for French listeners.

Other than that, Tamil diva Susheela Raman proves once again she has the “goods”. What a strong voice and great songs. She sings in a mix of Tamil and English. French radio has good taste to feature this beauty.

Finally, The Bewitched Hands are a French pop group who sing in English. They’ve got better tunes than Beady Eyes for sure. They’ll literally blow you away with those er, “bewitched” hands.

A big thanks to “svp” for sharing the this special show. If you want just the music, you can skip the interviews. They do not overlap into the music. Thanks also to WeepingWall for the cover art.

  1. One Response to “READY, STEADY, GO GO GO II”

  2. Thanks a lot for a Marianne Faithfull show - and then even with bonus artists thrown into the tray. Always provoking and thoughtful lyrics and interesting music, and then in such high quality. A welcome and early aperitif to the weekend. Appreciate whoever taped this and BigO for the posting…..
