Back in 2008 sixties pinup Marianne Faithfull recorded an album of covers,
titled Easy Come, Easy Go, in duet with Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright, Cat Power,
Kate & Anna McGarrigle and several more artists.
One take that stands out to my ears is the version of Sing Me Back Home,
a charming lullaby by the late country singer Merle Haggard (1937-2016).
Marianne did this one with her first Rolling Stone lover, Keith Richards.
They sound lovely, they sound Xmassy…
Easy Come, Easy Go in full…
