Various - Joy Of Living: A Tribute To Ewan MacColl

This 2-CD set features new interpretations of MacColl’s songs from artists who span the worlds of pop, rock, Celtic, and folk. Rather than trying to be a definitive collection, it provides a testament to the range and influence of this remarkable singer and songwriter. Known as the godfather of the first British folk revival, Ewan MacColl is hailed for writing such classic songs as “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” “Dirty Old Town,” “The Shoals Of Herring,” and “The Joy Of Living.” Highlights include Steve Earle’s take on “Dirty Old Town,” and Norma Waterson’s peerless rendition of the plight of the travelers in “The Moving On Song.”
