The Rock Island Line. Donegan
 
03:29
Early Lonnie Donegan 1957..... The concealed 'pig iron' might be referring to smuggling slaves to freedom. "Rock Island Line" is an American blues/folk song, which was performed and first recorded by Lead Belly in the 1930s. Versions of the song have been recorded by many other artists. While the song is ostensibly about the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad, from the lyrics there is evidence to suggest that the "railroad" referred-to is actually the Underground Railroad, a slave escape route Wikipedia

THE MIDNIGHT SPECIAL - Lonnie Donegan
 
02:37
The legend of The Midnight Special is that a train would pass the prison each day at midnight and its headlight would flash through the bars and into the prison. The superstition was that if the light shone on you, that meant you would be the next man to get out of the prison. Lead Belly saw John Lomax as his Midnight Special, his way to get out of Angola. He asked Lomax to record a song he had written, a plea to Louisiana Gov. O.K. Allen to release him from prison. Lead Belly asked Lomax to deliver the recording to Gov. Allen. At the end of the song, Lead Belly made sure to tell the governor his given name and exactly where he could be found in prison. Then in the late 1950's Lonnie got it into the charts and from then on.. Or.... The Midnight Special is a replay of the auld devil's black coach or hunt or horse myth which is coming to take us all away. ...................... Coming for me soon :-(

Railroad Bill - Lonnie Donegan
 
02:37
The death of Railroad Bill - Private detectives, rail detectives, lawmen, and citizens were after Bill, or at least the $1250 reward on his head. A posse was taking a break in the store of Tidmore and Eard in Atmore when a lone, black man with a slight limp walked through to the counter. Nobody paid him much attention except the storekeeper who recognized him as Railroad Bill. After Bill's last visit, the storekeeper placed a double barrel shotgun within reach so that he might win that reward. He was so afraid of Bill that he didn't go for the gun. Bill sat himself on a barrel and proceeded to snack on crackers and cheese, the posse continuing their conversations just across the room. Leonard McGowin had recognized Bill going into the store. Again, Bill's reputation, the legend that he could only be killed by a silver bullet, his known ability with a gun, caused McGowin to hesitate. McGowin went around to a side door and fired his rifle from outside, issuing a fatal wound. On the way down, Bill went for his gun, but was hit again by a shotgun blast from the storekeeper. It took the startled posse a moment to figure out what was going on and then they opened fire on the corpse. Railroad Bill's body was strapped to a board. His guns were placed on his person and he was placed on public display. In every "colored waiting room", in every major depot, from Atmore and Brewton to Montgomery, citizens were given the chance to pay 25 or 50 cents to view the remains or have their pictures taken with the notorious outlaw. The photo here of Leonard McGowin standing over the body, was widely sold for 50 cents by a company in Brewton. The body was buried in an unmarked grave in Pensacola. The only genuine picture of McCoy is the final one of his body strapped to a board. All the others are of various other African American bad men and notable characters of those days. I couldn't find a picture of 'a .38 barrel on a .45 frame' so made do with various 45's and 44's. Bill's gun sounds quite feasible. The smaller .38 calibre and the heavy .45 frame would give you much reduced recoil and the with the long barrel you should have pretty accurate firearm.

This Train - Ken Colyer's Skiffle Group - 1954
 
03:41
This example of the earliest Ken Colyer Skiffle group involves a distinct collaboration between Ken and, of course, Lonnie Donegan, both instrumentally and vocally. For skiffle Chris Barber played string bass which had been his second study instrument at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Bill Colyer resumed a position he had held with The Cranes when needed on washboard. This Train features Ken and Lonnie in a duo vocal

Freight Train - Chas McDavitt - Nancy Whisky
 
03:23
Nancy Whiskey From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search Nancy Whiskey (b Anne Alexandra Young Wilson, Bridgeton, Glasgow, Scotland, 4 March 1935 -- d 1 February 2003) was a Scottish folk singer, best known for the 1957 hit song "Freight Train". While attending art school in Glasgow, Anne Wilson performed on the local folk club circuit where she met fellow singer and guitarist Jimmie MacGregor who introduced her to blues and hillbilly music. She took her stage name from a folk song which had a chorus of "Whiskey, whiskey, Nancy, whiskey". She was signed to Topic Records and moved to London in 1955. Although reluctant to surrender her reputation as a solo performer, she was persuaded to join the Chas McDevitt Skiffle Group to record Elizabeth Cotten's song "Freight Train". The record made the UK top five in 1957, and she also toured the USA with McDevitt's group. After a second, smaller hit, "Greenback Dollar", Whiskey left the group to resume a solo career and marry musician Bob Kelly, who became a member of her backing group, the Teetotallers. By the 1970s, she had largely retired from music.

Waiting For Benny - Charlie Christian
 
06:41
Thanks to Sony for allowing this to stay on.I have not the nerve to add in any pictures to this. Just turn the sound up and listen. According to my 1960 EP sleeve notes this was recorded while the sound engineer was setting up and the Benny Goodman band was getting ready while they waited for Benny Goodman. Charlie Christian played a few notes from Smooth One and the others just joined in. Towards the end you can hear the sound engineer call time on them. If true then you can hear genius and the muse actually creating a jazz master piece. Keep your sound up and listen to it happen. Later issued as composed by Benny Goodman, who wasn't there. Available form Amazon and others if you want really good sound. It's said that Charlie Christian found the Goodman organization musically restricting. I think this shows if you compare Smooth One, written by Goodman, with Waiting for Benny. Waiting For Benny is a 'warm up' track taped for balance by the engineer before the recording session proper got under way; they were not intended for issue but are of interest as illustrations of the genesis of jazz inspiration— one can hear one of Cootie's rare un-muted trumpet solos, and the germ of A Smooth One, from Christian, on Waiting For Benny.

Good Mornin' Blues - The Westcott Skiffle -
 
02:37
An old Leadbelly number revitalised sometime during the 1950's by a British group. This track is taken from the CD 'The Skiffle Explosion' which covers the period when this type of music was reintroduced to the public. I've lost the sleeve notes, and though I remember this number in my younger days, know nothing about the Westcott Skiffle Group. Perhaps someone can fill this in on the comments section. The dawn was photographed from my bedroom window looking out over the Preseli Mountains towards Llandissilio. The later pictures are really the sunset and not the dawn taken from Newgale, Pembrokeshire, Wales.

A nice change from the more frantic style of skiffle that followed the skiffle revolution of the 50's. Video was shot on the 2007 Pembrokeshire Vintage and Classic car run in Wales. Camera car is a Dutton Phaeton III built in 1988 based on an early 70's 1600 Ford Escort. 2 litre Pinto engine added in 2003.
