This six-CD set is a full, long overdue anthology of the music and musicians who created Skiffle. From the African American forebears of the 1920s and '30s like The Memphis Jug Band and Lead Belly to the fountainhead of Skiffle in the UK, Ken Colyer, this collection includes anthems like Down By The Riverside and Midnight Special. And then came Lonnie Donegan! The undisputed King of Skiffle is represented by hits like Cumberland Gap, Rock Island Line, Puttin' On The Style, and Gamblin' Man as well as lesser known songs like Light From The Lighthouse and The Goldrush Is Over. The popularity of Skiffle exploded with classics such as Johnny Duncan's Last Train To San Fernando, Chas McDevitt's worldwide hit Freight Train and The Vipers Don't You RockMe Daddy-O. This set also includes Continental groups like Roban's Skiffle Group and the Mozam Skiffle Group. An overlooked chapter in popular music history finally gets its due! Chas McDevitt Author of SKIFFLE, The Definitive Inside Story Published by Rollercoaster Books The truly comprehensive story of Skiffle in words and music! All the hits, all the greatest performances, all the forgotten gems! Includes the American jazz and folk artists who influenced Skiffle... and some Skifflers from Europe... plus, of course, the UK's finest! Skiffle wasn't rock 'n' roll, but it influenced a generation of '60s British beat artists. The Beatles, the Who, the Kinks, Jimmy Page, and many more began in Skiffle groups. Contains a complete previously unissued LP by The Eden Skiffle Group. This collection was produced exclusively for BEAR FAMILY by Ulf Krüger.
