Faithless Was a ReRelase of Dreamin' My Dreams is the sixth studio album by English singer Marianne Faithfull. It was released in 1976 by NEMS Records and it is Faithfull's first and only record of country music. The album was re-released two years later in 1978 as Faithless. The main differences between the two albums are: the album art and Faithless including 4 more tracks and some tracks rearranged. The musicians on both versions of the album are The Grease Band. It was Faithfull's first released album in almost a decade.
The single "Dreamin' My Dreams" topped the charts in Ireland in 1976. Waylon Jennings and Crystal Gayle had recorded versions of the song in 1975. It was later recorded by Patty Loveless, Alison Krauss, Cowboy Junkies, Mark Chesnutt, Emmylou Harris with Rodney Crowell amongst others.
The album was also notable for the noticeable change in Faithfull's singing voice. As a result of years of smoking, drinking, and drug use, her once melodic vocals from her early career were replaced by a deep, huskier voice that later came to good use on later records including her highly acclaimed comeback album Broken English released three years later.
