Homelessness: 50 years later, Streets of London ballad re-recorded

A new version of Ralph McTell’s haunting ballad Streets Of London has been re-recorded 50 years after the it was first written.

This time McTell performs it with the Crisis Choir and guest vocalist Annie Lennox as part of a project to end homelessness. Crisis was formed 50 years ago as well and today operates 13 centres for over 4,000 homeless persons over Christmas.
