Description

An important collection of British Skiffle that will, for the first time, allow modern listeners to hear that this era of British music was actually filled with high quality roots music from which the 1960's revolution flowed.

Before the British Invasion, before the Beatles, before all that happened in the 1960's there were some roots and these are them. Skiffle was a marvellous amalgam of blues, jazz and swinging folk and some of the best and most important music is presented here over 4CDs-superbly remastered and presented.
