Editorial Reviews

EU-only six CD collection. This 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 Rock Me Daddy-O'. This set also includes Continental groups like Roban's Skiffle Group and the Mozam Skiffle Group. 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.
