Jim.

You will find that Donegan in 1953 was known as banjo and guitar player in the Chris Barber / Ken Colyer bands among the followers of what was known as "Traditional Jazz". That's how I knew him and where I first saw and heard him. It was 1956 when he became a household name.

Can I refer you again to "The Skiffle Album" the printed copy of the material sung by The Ramblers.It must have been Lomax & MacColl I guess that gave it that title. Why?

I would never have called what they did Skiffle. I thought it was as bad as all the other stuff that came along under that banner and I did hear many of them. There were some excellent musicians there but I preferred hearing Bruce Turner and Jim Bray in their normal jazz setting which I did many times live.

May I remind you Jim that you don't like "grave dancing" but you attack Malcolm Nixon never having met the man.

The remainder of your post re MacColl is irrelevant to this thread, we have heard it all before.
