GUEST,Dita (at work) Thro' the Recent Years (A Fisher/B Dickson) (15) RE: info req on Archie Fisher/B.Dickson disc 21 Apr 01

Susanne(skw), I am impressed, you do know your stuff.
Yes that's true, I wrote it for Iain, after a night he, me and a few others, spent playing, worst gig, worst punter etc in the early hours of a Girvan Folk Festival. "The Man" is an composite of various people Iain and I had encountered over the years.
It was a very small return for all the songs and people he has introduced me to over the years. He recorded it on a German album "Just my Cup of Tea."
Iain has given up touring after a spell of ill health but still plays festivals and Scottish club dates. He says that he's "not going to be the next to go."
I had the honour of playng an "Iain Mac & Friends" gig with him in Glasgow last month, and ended up singing the songs of his other friends who couldn't make it like Tom Paxton and Allan Taylor, I loved it.
Be sure to get in touch if you ever get to Scotland.
love, john.
