Come and Stay With Me: The UK 45s 1964-1969, by Marianne Faithfull, includes all of the legendary icon's singles from this era packaged with rare photographs and extensive liner notes featuring interviews with Marianne. The 22-track collection — in addition to the A and B-sides of each 45 recorded for the UK Decca label in the 1960s — also incorporates the entire Go Away From My World EP.

Marianne Faithfull's Decca singles are exemplary string-laden U.K. ‘60s pop and offer insight into both her roots and artistic development. Come And Stay With Me opens with Faithfull's first hit, her bittersweet 1964 version of the Mick Jagger/Keith Richards composition "As Tears Go By" (co-written with their manager Andrew Loog Oldham who changed the title from "As Time Goes By"), and closes with her original chilling 1969 rendition of the dark song, co-written with Jagger and Richards, "Sister Morphine." It was later remodeled by The Rolling Stones on their classic 1971 album Sticky Fingers.

Born in Hampstead, U.K. in 1946 to a former British Army spy and a ballerina, Faithfull moved to Reading where, by her early teens, she could be found in coffee bars singing folk songs. Her repertoire included "House of the Rising Sun" and Bob Dylan's ‘Blowin' In The Wind," both of which she would eventually record for Decca and are part of the new collection.

Come And Stay With Me restores the focus upon the magnificent folk (a remarkable rendition of the traditional "Greensleeves," produced by Oldham) and popular music (including versions of Jackie DeShannon's "Come And Stay With Me," Donovan's ‘The Most Of What Is Least" and John D. Loudermilk's "This Little Bird") that Marianne Faithfull created at Decca as she stumbled towards writing her own material and moving towards a redemptive career path. The package also features extensive biographical notes by celebrated music journalist Kris Needs, which are informed by his longstanding close friendship with the singer, and were forged using numerous interviews during the past four decades.
