Peggy Seeger – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (1957)
Written by Kirsty MacColl‘s Dad, Ewan, for his wife Peggy Seeger, singing here.
Apparently Ewan MacColl himself made no secret of the fact that he disliked almost all of the cover versions of the song, referring to them collectively as “the Chamber of Horrors”.
