I totally agree. Lon was the one. I also think it's fair to mention Ramblin' Jack Elliot, who hated skiffle music, but held high respect for Lonnie. He once said that Lonnie Donegan made an inroad for his own success in this country. Jack brought the songs of Woody Guthrie and many other American artists to the UK. Ramblin' Jacks interpretation of Rock Island Line is well worth a listen. (CD - 'Ramblin'Jack Elliot, Country Style Live'.
