Skiffle Goes Techno!

6 Feb

Well, not really, but while putting together the “History Of Skiffle” book for a new Bear Family box set (out next week!) we came across these pictures of a Meccano “Skiffle Group”. A reprint of the full 2-page construction guide is included in the book.

The Bear Family box includes 6 CDs with more than 170 songs – all the hits, the greatest performances, and lots of forgotten gems (including the complete legendary album by the Eden Skiffle Group which was only issued as a set of flexi-discs).
