• Lonnie DONEGAN - My Old Man's A Dustman - The Singles As & Bs 1954-1961

During the 1950s, Lonnie Donegan reigned as the undisputed 'King of Skiffle' and he is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential musician of his era.

This unique 58-track, 2CD collection contains all his singles, both As and B-sides issued between 1954-1961.

Features 32 UK hits, including Lonnie's four UK No. 1s 'Cumberland Gap', 'Gamblin' Man', 'Putting On The Style' and 'My Old Man's A Dustman'.

Also included are a trio of rare, early singles, which are often omitted from compilations, 'On A Christmas Day', 'Midnight Special' and the controversial 'Diggin' My Potatoes' (which was the subject of a BBC ban).
