English singer, songwriter and actress Marianne Faithfull’s A Childs Adventure is an underrated bargain bin find from Island Records’ legendary Compass Point studio featuring production by the great Barry Reynolds and Wally Badarou along with guitar from Mikey Chung. While the album does have its moments and great songwriting, it’s definitely all about the “Blue Millionaire” here with the snappy guitar, gorgeous Sequential-Prophet 5 synthesizer lines, art rock aesthetics, and upbeat island groove. Faithfull’s autobiographical and entrancing spoken word are of course undeniable and they somehow work perfectly with Wally and Barry’s Compass Point groove making for a truly unique dance track that’s sure to set a mood.
