Thread Name: New Hamish Imlach compilation CD
Subject: RE: Hamish Imlach
go the track listing, Eric?

I loved Hamish's picking - so neat. Though I confess I only saw him a couple of times. The first time I saw him I learned Matchbox Blues off him - the old Blind lemon Jefferson thing. Years later I heard BLJ and realised that I had learned it completely wrong. But I preferred Hamish's version, and by that time I was too old and stupid to relearn it the right way. I'd love to hear that again.


I had one of the Transatlantic albums. There was some great stuff on it. Where the Gaudie Runs, a corking version of The Foggy Dew (some really good guitar picking on that)and Erin go Braugh - which you still don't don't hear in England, due to our local difficulties.
