Very nearly seventy years after the event, it's impossible to convey just how big an impact SKIFFLE had upon the teenaged youth of an austere, sepia-tinted, post-WW2 UK.

It was an almost exclusively British phenomenon, propelled by home-made, DIY simplicity; a cheap, bottom-of-the-range banjo or acoustic guitar; a stand-up tea chest bass; a washboard; a handful of thimbles; and a kazoo, from Woolworths (optional).

It's no exaggeration to say that Lonnie Donegan's frantic 'Rock Island Line', which made the charts in January 1956, changed everything; it threw the 'rule book' out of the window.

Very nearly seventy years after the event, it's impossible to convey just how big an impact SKIFFLE had upon the teenaged youth of an austere, sepia-tinted, post-WW2 UK.

It was an almost exclusively British phenomenon, propelled by home-made, DIY simplicity; a cheap, bottom-of-the-range banjo or acoustic guitar; a stand-up tea chest bass; a washboard; a handful of thimbles; and a kazoo, from Woolworths (optional).

It's no exaggeration to say that Lonnie Donegan's frantic 'Rock Island Line', which made the charts in January 1956, changed everything; it threw the 'rule book' out of the window.

Following Lonnie's breakthrough, along came The Vipers, Chas McDevitt & Nancy Whiskey, Johnny Duncan, Dickie Bishop, Alexis Korner & Cyril Davies, and dozens more.

This compilation features all the singers, strummers, strokers and scratchers at the forefront of the UK Skiffle Boom - more than 40 different groups/artists are featured - and includes many of the genre's biggest hits.
