Great Covers of our Songs – click on MUSIC and scroll down past our cds.

Posted November 28th, 2009 by Anna

Here are some well-known and some not so well-known covers of our songs from over the years. Because these are women’s works they tend to appeal more to women artists but occasionaly a brave man has dared to take-on a song and the resulting version is always very interesting. We will keep adding links as we find them.

    Didn’t know anyone had covered it.. Can you send me an mp3 please? Kate and I don’t own the master of our version of that song though we were supposed to share publishing with the producer. I’m sure we have the contract somewhere??. It was a work for hire but the ‘producer’ Doug Hutton’ has never accounted to us for either What God has Wrought’ aka Telephone song or the 2nd song ‘Les filles du roi’. We did after all write and record the songs, you’d think we’d be entitled to something. He rereleased the project called ‘In the Dawning’ a few yrs back with ‘a book & a cd’ but was selling it online directly. He never even sent us a copy. Ah the music business. I shall get right on this.

    I have many McGarrigle cover recordings that I’d be happy to electronically share – just say the word, along with the best way to do so (even if it’s just e-mailing an mp3 at a time). I’ll forgo an initial deluge of a list, but a couple such items of note: (1) a Greek-language version of “The Work Song,” and (2) 5 additional covers of “Heart Like A Wheel,” including the one by the group McKendree Spring. That version, from the album “McKendree Spring 3″ (and titled “Heart Is Like A Wheel”), came out in 1972 – at least here in the U.S. – possibly making it the 1st McGarrigle-connected recording of any kind to appear on record.

    Nana Mouskouri covered \On my way to town\ (she sang it in English) in an album titled \I’ll Remember You.\ I found it a while back on iTunes.

    Reflecting fondly on Kate for some wonderful memories.

    Try listening to ‘Dancing in the Midnight Sun’ by April it sounds exactly like Complainte pour Ste-Catherine to me. You can listen to it on itunes – maybe they acknowledge true authorship on the sleeve notes- I hope so. Also interesting version of the same song by Kevin Roth on Dulcimer Man

    As a songwriter, and performer, Kate touched my heart very deeply. I was shocked to know tonight, late, that she is not with us now. I’m so glad she had such a beautiful goodbye, with family that seemed to have made her aware she wsa a treasure. The McGarrigle sisters created music that stuck with me uncommonly. Love to all involved. I thank Kate.
