It is hard to realise what an impact, albeit brief, skiffle had on the British music scene. Bursting out of nowhere on the back of the Donegan hit Rock Island Line in 1956, it's boom and bust year was 1957. This CD illustrates the best of the genre, as recorded on the Esquire label in 1957.
The groups here are THE 2.19 SKIFFLE GROUP, THE STATION SKIFFLE GROUP, THE DELTA SKIFFLE GROUP, THE LEA VALLEY SKIFFLE GROUP and JOHNNY CHRISTMAS And the SUNSPOTS. There is a detailed booklet with notes on the bands and the tracks. You will find a full track listing and band details if you click through to page 2.
