Funny you should mention Lonnie today. On my way to work I was listening to some CDs I had burned a few years ago and one was all British Pop artists from the 50s and 60s. Along with Eden Cane, Billy Fury, Cliff Richard and Craig Douglas there were a couple of skiffle tunes including Lonnie Donegan and Nancy Whiskey with the Chas McDevitt Group singing Freight Train.
The Lonnie Donegan tunes were live versions of Does Your Chewing Gum ...., Rock Island Line and he and Van Morrison doing Sloop John B. The one liners on Chewing Gum are hilarious.
