Reviews of This Recording

The UK jazz outlet Upbeat has (amongst a healthy programme of vintage British jazz reissues) been particularly kind to the legacy of old Lonnie in recent years, gathering interesting artefacts from all parts of his long career............Full marks to Liz Biddle and the Upbeat team for two wmore entertaining and worthwhile additions to the later Donegan canon.
