GUEST,Roger Rettig Lonnie Donegan's guitarists (61* d) RE: Lonnie Donegan's guitarists..... 11 Feb 07

Hello, Murray!! Thanks for contacting me....

You might want to go to e-bay and purchase the 'King Of Skiffle' DVD - all those clips and more are contained therein (it's a copy of the old ITC VHS tape of some of the 'Putting On The Donegan' shows. My VERY favourite is a great version of 'Whoa Buck' (B-side of 'Fort Worth Jailhouse') - it has Les Bennetts, of course (the record has Jimmy Currie - the A-side is Les B., but 'Whoa Buck' had been in the can since Jimmy's tenancy in the group), but Lonnie is terrific on that song; that's the stuff he did best of all, in my view.

I really would rather we could buy a DVD direct from Sharon - I'd be much happier if any profits go to Lonnie's family, but there's been no sign of anything in the way of an official release.

Lets hope 'Sundown' is released on CD before long!
