MARIANNE FAITHFULL - GIVE MY LOVE TO LONDON
Legendary British singer Marianne Faithfull will celebrate her storied career's 50th anniversary later this fall with the release of Give My Love to London. Produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Flood, it features an impressive roll call of studio collaborators including Adrian Utley (Portishead), Brian Eno, Ed Harcourt, Warren Ellis and Jim Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds). Songwriting contributors and co-conspirators - with Faithfull penning the majority of the lyrics - include Nick Cave, Roger Waters, Steve Earle, Tom McRae and Anna Calvi. While featuring a stellar supporting cast, it is Marianne Faithfulls voice which proves the main attraction. These are songs sung from the heart and soul and from the perspective of someone who has seen and done it all. Over a fifty year career, she has proved utterly fearless in her music and everything else besides. Five decades on, Marianne Faithfull remains a unique and compelling musical figure: adventurous in her life, adventurous in her art. ~ Amazon
"You Can't Fight It" was written for John Carpenter's seminal "Assault On Precinct 13", but only made it onto the Italian release of the film, "Distretto 13", and was previously available only as a very limited 7" promo!
Trinidadian Jimmy Chambers rose to fame in the early 90s in Londonbeat, achieving number 1 success in the U.S. Billboard 100 and Hot Dance Club back in 1991 with "I've Thinking About You". 15 years prior however he was commissioned to perform "You Can't Fight It", masterminded by British 60's legend Kenny Lynch. FBNM favourite Riccio has also provided us with a superbly authentic re-edit, only adding a little quantisation, fattening, stretch and sparkle to accompany the original faithfully and help translate this lost gem onto today's dance floors! This officially licensed premium 10" reissue features the original version carefully restored and remastered by Andreas "Lupo" Lubich (CALYX Berlin), in a vinyl only package featuring promotional art from the film, a digital download code and lyrics insert!
