This discography was for many years the only complete listing of Ewan MacColl’s records. Since John has passed away in 2009 this discography is not available anymore at its original location. I copied it here with some minor corrections, and added links to albums on this site.

Ewan MacColl Discography

Issue 38
May 2008

This discography is based on the lists in Ewan MacColl’s files,with additions from other sources, most notably The Complete Topic Records Discography by Dr. Mike Brocken and Rod Stradling.

Peggy Seeger’s website includes a discography that includes the recordings that she and Ewan MacColl made together (along with most of her other records).

This discography is organized by country of issue--English releases first, followed by American and Australian labels, and then the rest of the world. Compilations and radio transcriptions are at the end of the discography. Many of the songs on the British Topic LPs were also released in some form in the U.S. on Riverside, Folkways or Stinson.

Some of the songs on the Australian Wattle label originated on Topic. A few songs on Topic releases were recorded in Australia for Wattle.

Many of the Blackthorne releases were issued in the U.S. on Folkways and Rounder, and in Australia on Larrikin.

Several labels in the U.K. and elsewhere have released Ewan MacColl material on compact discs, including reissues of earlier LPs, compilations of songs that originally appeared on more than one LP, and individual tracks on “various artists” collections. I have listed the ones I know about, but more will probably appear in the future.

In addition to these publicly available recordings, Ewan MacColl also made numerous radio and television appearances on the BBC and elsewhere. Transcriptions or off-air recordings of a few of these performances may be in private circulation. I have included Catalogue numbers for those BBC Transcription Service discs that I can confirm.

This listing does not include records produced, directed, or compiled by Ewan MacColl, on which he does not appear as a singer. However, I have included recordings of his plays, even if he does not appear in them.

Unless otherwise noted, all listings are 12-inch LPs.

There are almost certainly additional items that do not appear on this list, including private issues. If you know of any, please let me know and I’ll add them to the next edition.

Two good online sources of biographical information about Ewan MacColl’s life and work are http://www.ewanmaccoll.co.uk/ewan-maccoll-biography/ and http://www.wcml.org.uk/maccoll/biography/.
