Thread Name: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
Subject: RE: Lonnie Donegan: Whatcha All Fink Of Him
I think my real problem with Lonnie Donegan is his relentless enthusiasim which just wears me down. If you are going to cover a song, then I think there is something to be said about capturing the mood. Ry Cooder had it down to a fine art whereas Lonnie Donegan would throw himself a little too much into the performance. Still, I bet he had a great record collection.
