Lonnie Donegan 22/8/2000


Donegan's second album, recorded in March of 1958, shows some greater sophistication. In place of sheer volume on the singing, he uses more subtle inflections throughout this mix of blues, gospel, and folk, which includes covers of traditional gospel songs like "Ain't You Glad You Got Religion" and two Lee Hayes songs ("Lonesome Traveller," "Times Are Getting Hard Boys"), Blind Willie Johnson's "Light From The Lighthouse," and Lonnie Johnson's "I've Got Rocks In My Bed" (which is good, but exists in an even better outtake issued by Bear Family in 1993). Jimmy Currie had taken over on lead guitar by this time, and proved more flexible than Denny Wright, with more complex lead guitar passages, although Wright evidently could play harder when the need arose, but otherwise the band is unchanged. Not as strong as the first album, with more of a folk music orientation, but not bad either. Note: The material from Lonnie is available on Bear Family's 8-CD collection More Than "Pye In The Sky." ~ Bruce Eder
