Skiffle

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ILbUduwBkg&feature=related

I love skiffle and the early rockabilly music...i find the basic freshness of the singing and early guitar sound does it for me.
Though to young to remember the days of skiffle and early rockabilly i still love to listen to the early pioneers.
This song i have posted is one of my favourites.
Lonnie Donnegan was the king of skiffle...this toooooooon is class.:)

That's a good one Lee :)I'm more familiar with the leadbelly version though lol
 
He

I always remember on of his other records "Battle of New Orleans" and one of the longest words I knew as a child "ignominiously"

Another one I remember from my childhood from that era is 'Ragtime Cowboy Joe' who was it by? I used to really annoy my mother crashing the fire poker on the floor in time to the gunfire :2fun::2fun::2fun:

CUMBERLAND GAP & MY OLD MAN'S A DUSTMAN - LONNIE DONNEGAN, still have the LP somewhere. I really feel for the youngsters, they never had the opportunity to listen to the "BEST MUSIC EVER" - LATE 50'S AND ALL THE 60'S!! :2fun::2fun: Jiving to records from those days - you needed to be fit - and you never let go of your partner's hand either. Thanks for my memories of my dancing years!!:2fun::2fun: Wonder if that was why I took to rugby so well??:biggrin::biggrin::2fun:

At least you can still remember them Brian.>:D:2fun::2fun:

He was a little bit before my time, but I still enjoyed playing the records my sister bought.
I never jived though, but my sister and her hubby still do, and he's 75. What a mover.:):)

Hi Steve

Yes you are right it was the second one, I think it was a record that my younger half brother had bought and left behind when he joined the RAF. sadly I never saw him after he left, dad did not approve of his wife, now it's to late as he has passed away.

Gwen :)
