Thread Name: Review: Early Lonnie Dongan tracks
Subject: Review: Early Lonnie Dongan tracks
Came across a double CD on Timeless of 1954-1956 recordings of the Chris Barber band taken from private tapes of club sessions in Holland and Germany.
Has six Skiffle tracks,
On A Monday
In the Evening (When the sun goes down)
Midnight Special
Goin' Down this road feelin'bad
Lost John
Railroad Bill
Also one track of Lonnie and Ottilie Paterson singing together,
When I move to the Sky
Recording quality is mixed, but all re-mastered by John R T Davies, so as good as it can be made.
Some of the band tracks are tunes I have not seen on any of Chris's early recordings. Good stuff!
