GUEST,Roger Rettig Folklore: Lonnie Donegan Tribute Songs (13) RE: Folklore: Lonnie Donegan Tribute Songs 19 Apr 05


'All Together Now', credited to Peter Sarstedt, but actually written by all three Sarstedt brothers (Rick, Clive and Peter). Peter, of course, had a huge hit with his 1969 song, 'Where Do You Go To, My Lovely?' in 1969, Clive (as 'Robin' Sarstedt) scored in the '70s with 'My Resistance Is Low', while Rick - as Eden Kane - had a string of top five hits from 1961 to 1964.

The brothers were avid Donegan fans in their youth, and I knew them all well as I played guitar in Eden's band from '62 to '66. I've just spent a few days with him in Los Angeles where he now lives (I was doing a show there), and he was glowing with pride when he told me that Lonnie himself had 'covered' their song, 'All Together Now', on what was to be his last studio album, 'Muleskinner Blues'.

Here's another one.....

'He's the man, he's the guitar man....
You'd better watch out when he makes his stand,
He's putting on the agony, putting on the style,
You can count yourself lucky if you see him smile.....'

Written by Eric Clapton at about 14 years old.
