from ALL THE WAY…A DECADE OF SONG
Written by Ewan MacCall
“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” is an evergreen written by the late UK singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl (1915-1989). Born James Henry Miller, MacCall wrote the now-classic love song in 1957 for folk singer Peggy Seeger, his long-time companion who eventually became his wife twenty years later. In 1972, “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” was recorded by legendary soul singer Roberta Flack.
