Dear Susanne. My friend Garnet Rogers told me the most outrageous, funny, and difficult to repeat Hamish Imlach story a few weeks ago. After hearing it I wouldn't be surprised at anything Mr. Imlach said....short of him introducing another Leadbelly song with a description of how he (Hamish) used to "pick a bale" in the Glasgow cotton fields.
