Marianne Faithfull - Broken English short film by Derek Jarman (1979)
"... Along with the original studio album, the reissue will also includethe original 'lost' band sessions recording, a selection of bonus tracks and the Derek Jarman directed short film of 'Witches Song', 'The Ballad of Lucy Jordan' and 'Broken English'. We were sent the following background information: On its release in late '79 'Broken English' was an instant critical and commercial success bringing Marianne a new image, an international following, a Grammy nomination and the confidence to record more of her own compositions. The beautiful blonde muse, the wistful teenager who whispered of tears going by, was reborn. The Marianne who roared out of the traps on 'Broken English' was a different animal altogether: wild, and feral, with a voice ravaged by experience and betrayal."
