    Lonnie Donegan
    Extended Play CD

    This superb 28 track collection includes 23 chart hits!
    Between January 1956 and August 1962, Lonnie Donegan - The King Of Skiffle - was the most influential British recording artist.
    He was also the first male UK artist to reach the US top 10 twice.
    Steeped in traditional jazz, he was a guitarist in a skiffle band before a spell in the army saw him drumming in the Wolverines Jazz Band.
    After his discharge from the army he played banjo with Ken Colyer and then Chris Barber.
    Before Lonnie Donegan’s emergence in early 1956 there weren’t any home grown teenage idols and no real teenage music to speak of.
    Lonnie was to change all that becoming, in effect, the first modern pop star.
    No previous British performer had come close to the energy and excitement that Lonnie brought to the scene.
    More remarkable was the fact that he had achieved it playing music from American Folk and Blues in origin.
    It was however music that the younger generation were hearing something that they felt the energy and related to and wanted to emulate.
    Pretty soon Skiffle began to take a hold and Skiffle groups started springing up all over the country.
