GUEST,Gumbo Stu Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him (34) RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him 02 Jul 05

Great thread!

My dad had an old ten inch Chris Barber LP recorded live with Lonnie doing his two songs on each side. 1954? I haven't seen it for years. I think Rock Island Line was one of them. I found a 78 of Jack O'Diamonds as a tenager and was blown away - he could cut loose.

He claimed authorship of a fair few Leadbelly songs as I remember, but I think that was the way the music industry worked back then. Ask AJ Carter.

Anybody I've talked to who has seen him perform has raved about his showmanship, and his humour, and, yes, his enthusiasm. He'd 'ave a go, alright!
