Hands up everyone who thought that Welshman Tom Jones had the original version be honest! The full title is "(It Looks Like) I'll Never Fall In Love Again" and should not be confused with Burt Bacharach's "I'll Never Fall In Love Again" which is a totally different number, dating from 1968. Lonnie Donegan, the great British skiffle hero, was born in Scotland in 1931. He enjoyed huge succes in the 1950s and early part of the 1960s. He died in November 2002. Although this number is credited to Lonnie Donegan and Jimmy Currie, the tune is similar to 1950's recording by the Sammy Kaye Orchestra, called "Wanderin'" (singer Tony Alamo), which itself is based on what is described as a "traditional number." Indeed, "Wanderin'" had earlier been recorded on Columbia 1585-D by Vernon Dalhart in 1928!
