Easy Come, Easy Go
is the 22nd album from Marianne Faithfull
and was recorded in December 2007 in NYC at the famous Sear Sound recording studio.
Easy Come, Easy Go is the third album of Marianne's to be produced by Hal Willner (the others being Strange Weather and Blazing Away). Marianne and Hal have been close friends since they've met, back in 1982, and have worked together on many different projects over the years, (most recently on three songs from Marianne's acclaimed last album Before the Poison) but Easy Come, Easy Go is their first complete studio album since Strange Weather, more than 20 years ago. Like that earlier album, Easy Come Easy Go is a collection of songs written by others and interpreted by Marianne. When Strange Weather was released in 1987, it was quickly hailed as one of Marianne's finest recordings, so this time around the challenge was really high: Marianne and Hal had to make an album that was at least as good. Both artists have risen to the challenge beautifully: they achieve a timeless recording, a masterpiece.
