Album Review

Lonnie Donegan sings mostly gospel and devotional music on this, his most Elvis Presley-like album. Recorded in early 1962, the album features Donegan in the best vocal performance of his career, very nearly outdoing Elvis as a singer of gospel songs. Denny Wright is back on guitar, but most of the material here is more opulent in its arrangements, featuring piano and a backing chorus (the Kestrels, including Roger Greenaway, sounding like the Jordanaires). Songs include "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," "Born in Bethlehem," "Steal Away," Leadbelly's "Pick a Bale of Cotton," Sister Rosetta Tharpe's "This Train," and A.P. Carter's "Keep on the Sunny Side." "Steal Away" may be the best performance Donegan ever committed to record, and the rest is above average. [All of the material on Sing Hallelujah is available on the eight-CD collection More Than "Pye in the Sky."]

He's relatively little remembered outside of England, but Donegan shares an important professional attribute with Elvis Presley,...
