The Free Box Tapes #9: Marianne Faithfull: "Blazing Away"

The ninth Free Box Tape has HIGH BIAS!!! 

Marianne Faithfull: Blazing Away (1990)

Sixty-Four Words: It turns out that Marianne Faithfull and Patti Smyth are two different people, although I’ll forgive myself the conceptual blurring.  This live album has a genteel cabaret rock feel to it, reminding me in that way only of the “unplugged” Nirvana album.  A distinctive alto voice working with a strong and varied set list makes this an interesting rock music find.  Thanks, free box!

Disposition: I'll keep it around.

Meanwhile, in August...

I had wondered for time to time if my monthly running mileage record of 116.75, set in May 2012, was going to be permanent.  But, with the help of 31 days and five full weekends, I went charging after it last month and ended the month with 119.26 miles in the hopper.  Congratulate me!
