This 2-CD set, which includes Peggy's original version of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, written for and about her by Ewan McColl, is drawn from fourteen LPs and two EPs, recorded between 1954-62.

Her collaborators include Isla Cameron, Guy Carawan, Alan Lomax, John Cole, Sammy Stokes, her brother Mike and sisters Barbara & Penny Seeger, and of course her husband, Ewan MacColl.

Peggy Seeger is the very epitome of American Folk Music aristocracy. Her father was Charles Louis Seeger Jr., the respected musicologist, composer, teacher and folklorist; her mother was Ruth Porter Crawford, a modernist composer and folklorist, the first woman to receive a Guggenheim Fellowship; her older half-brother was Pete Seeger, the celebrated singer, songwriter and social activist.
