Customer Review

on 31 March 2013
If you've only ever heard Lonnie Donegan singing "Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour on the bed-post over-night" and "My old man's a dustman", then you are missing out big time on a founder of British blues, country, folk and pop. Donegan was a class singer and guitarist and on this collection you hear him at his very best. He covers a lot of those early country and folk songs that were so poular in the USA. In Britain he virtually invented the skiffle group and as such had a huge influence on a young John Lennon when he formed his Quarrymen.
All Donegan's best work is here, it is well recorded with good sound on even the 50 s recordings. The collection is probably worth the price alone for "Rock Island Line" and "Cumberland Gap", and is superb value. Highly recommended.
