- Love Must Be Tough
- Artist: Eleanor McEvoy
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 6/9/2009
Normally filed under "folk" and normally found treading the folk circuit, Eleanor has never felt bound by her roots and has successfully included many others in her repertoire - blues, soul, rock. With a supporting cast of Ireland's finest musicians in the form of the South King Street Band, Eleanor takes a retro ride back to the late fifties / early sixties birth of rock and roll replete with ragtime jazz trumpets, trombones and saxes. This 2008 release was originally conceived as a covers album based on the theme of hitting 40 and mid life crisis, "Love Must Tough" has emerged as hybrid - mainly covers/interpretations, but mixed with an original and a clutch of co-written numbers. Even the cover artwork has a typically 60's layout.
