British singer, songwriter and film actress.

Discovered by the Rolling Stones’ manager, Faithfull had a major hit in 1964 with her cover of As Tears Go By. Other hits include Come and Stay With Me, This Little Bird and Summer Nights (all in 1965).

As Mick Jagger’s girlfriend she drew headline attention when the Stones were arrested in 1967 on drugs charges. (The story about the Mars Bar is pure fiction, however).

Faithfull made her acting debut in I’ll Never Forget Whathisname (1967) and also starred in Girl on a Motorcycle (1968), a film which she loathed and which led her to cut off her long blonde hair.

Her stunning record Broken English in 1979 revived her career and she remains an enduring icon of the 1960’s.

This is an original vintage copy of the sheet music
(11" x 8.5") for her 1964 hit, As Tears Go By, signed in ink across a clear area of the cover.
This item hasn't had an easy life (a little like poor old Marianne) with a central vertical fold and numerous handling dings (especially down the right edge), but overall condition is good. RARE.
