Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
I first met Scotty at The Village Pump Folk Festival in 1974, kept in touch with him pretty much up until a couple of years before he died. I recorded him live, on an old Tascam 4 track, at a gig he did at Pewee's in Trowbridge about 1992 which I've just been remastering in my studio, it's a bit tatty round the edges but very 'Scotty'. He was a good mate of Peewe & myself and we spent time with him in Amsterdam as well as at Trowbridge festival & Pewwee's bar in Trowbridge, had some great sessions with him & Leslie his good lady. I've also got a copy of his last album on tape( I think ) called Lesley Lady Love which I've just remastered onto CD. Been quite a memorable journey listening to it, I still recall the time he stayed with me and left 14 empty smirnoff bottles under the bed as well as polishing off all my whisky! What a week that was! Got some lovely pic's of him at various gigs over the years, seems to be very little available about him on the web, must be time for someone to do a tribute to him maybe. Anyone interested in sharing any memories of Scotty can get hold of me through www.trowbridgefestival.co.uk. Johnny M
