The accompanying CD tells the story of Skiffle in music, with historic, rare and previously unissued tracks An essential purchase for all those interested in Skiffle and the birth of British Rock. Hardback only What they are saying say about this book: “Skiffle, the Prodigy, McCartney, Oasis…. The year’s best rock books...McDevitt is ideally placed to spill all the relevant beans about the ‘craze’ that caused almost as much stir here as rock‘n’roll." THE SUNDAY TIMES (Robert Sandall) “Chas McDevitt’s excellent history of Skiffle…..All you ever wanted to know about the music that inspired rock‘n’roll." VERDICT ****THE DAILY MAIL (Val Hennessey) “These exciting times are described in detail by McDevitt in an absorbing book liberally illustrated with pictures & billboards of the era.” YORKSHIRE Evening Post "The book is a solid and comprehensive account of a fascinating period..." NEWCASTLE Evening Chronicle (Peter Fairley) “If you want to know more about the extraordinary Skiffle scene, you can do no better than to refer to McDevitt’s new book.” THE STAGE (Simon Blumenfeld) “I stayed up half the night reading this superbly researched book…. This is a must have book for anyone seriously interested in popular music." BUCKS FREE PRESS (Harry Warschauer) “McDevitt’s book is racy at the beginning, serious in the middle and provides excellent discographies at the end. It will not be possible to write again about popular music in this century without reading it first." FREEDOM (John Pilgrim) “McDevitt tells Skiffle’s story in the third-person, pulling this off without becoming contrived." MoJo (Ken Hunt) “A rattling good time with the Skiffle kings.” THE DAILY EXPRESS (Philip Norman) Available from all good bookshops and from Rollercoaster Records in the UK ISBN 978-0-9574462-0-5. Note that our UK price includes part of the postage charge, full postage cost for next-day delivery by courier is £6.00, making total £26.00
