Re: April 29th, 80th Anniversary of Lonnie's Birth.
As Dave said Paul, very well worded. Actually Lonnie deserved the success of 'Dustman' and 'Chewing Gum' to make up for the lost revenue he undoubtedly deserved from the success of 'Rock Island Line'. So from me two fingers up to Decca. As to the rest of his recording career the media weren't even on 'the outside looking in'.
The offending line in 'Diggin' was "You're Suckin' On My Sweet Bone". Happy Birthday LD.
In the words of one of your songs, "When I Get To Heaven That Land So Fair, Look For Me For I'll Be There". I hope.
