Marianne Faithfull: The Battle Over A Bird

David Griffiths, Record Mirror, 8 April 1965

SAID MARIANNE: "The trouble with having a record called 'The Little Bird' is that I don't like birds. I'm being involved in publicity situations where I have to pose with birds — I've just come from the London Zoo where I've been photographed with a dove. But I can't stand even a dove. Partly it's because I saw the Hitchcock film The Birds, partly it's because of a private incident."
