Thread Name: Hamish Imlach (1940-1996)-info, songs, etc.
Subject: RE: hamish imlach
ah now we're getting some where ! I agree with all the comments about his live performances as opposed to his recorded work and as for being a raconteur well life's all about leaving people with a smile on their face or a thought in their head is n't it ? Check out live performances of Vin Garbitt he does both.. and Barbara check out John Martyn , if you have n't already ...he's written some beautiful songs and his live performances are either tremendous and the hair stands up on the back of your head or ....well, blame it on the demon drink , perhaps when he's in that sort of mood the best thing is to join him.... talking of which .......

"He took the cork from the first bottle ,had a little drink..
kissed the bottle tenderly poured it down the sink...."

C'mn Susanne, Mike & Harvad you must have it..Please. but in the meantime keep the memory of Hamish alive.

all the best,

Ritchie.
