GUEST,Roger Rettig Best song Lonnie Donegan ever performed (67* d) RE: Best song Lonnie Donegan ever performed 06 Mar 09


The tracks from 'Relax With Lonnie' are a little more difficult to find, which is surprising, given the plethora of Donegan 'reissue' CDs that exist!

They are, of course, on the comprehensive 'Pye In The Sky' Bear Family 8-CD box-set, but that might be more than you want to spend! See if you can find 'Lonnie Donegan: The EP Collection - Volume Two'. It's a Castle Records release from 1993 and its number is SEECD-382. I have seen it on Ebay from time to time, and I'm sure it'll crop up again.

It also has the tracks from 'Backstairs Session', 'Lonnie Donegan Skiffle Group', 'Donegan On Stage' (the Conway Hall EP) and 'Yankee Doodle Donegan'; twenty-five tracks in all, and very informative sleeve-notes from Dave Radcliffe, who has forgotten more than most of us ever knew about Lonnie D.!!!

Yes; Lonnie plays a nice accompaniment to 'My Laggan Love' with some basic finger-style that makes full use of the open strings available in the key of E major.

Good luck finding the CD.
